Bungie Details Changes Coming to 'Destiny 2' PC Beta

TODO alt text

Bungie's Destiny 2 will be hosting its open beta on PC come August 29th.

Other multiplayer changes made to Destiny 2 for the PC beta include an increase in the score required to win a match in Control.

According to Bungie, matchmaking times will be shorter in Quickplay, with less emphasis on Skill.

Going forward, Destiny 2, which was recently featured as part of IGN First, will feature two alternate modes of matchmaking, Quickplay and Competitive.

While Destiny 2 will take player and group skill rating into account at all times, it will be less of a factor in Quickplay. "We have also made improvements to the way we calculate your skill in Countdown to better reflect how you'll perform against your opponents", Bakkan wrote.

Dozens Of Patients On Stretchers Evacuated From Exeter Hospital
Witnesses at the scene said employees were asked to leave the hospital around 11:30 a.m. and police responded to the scene. Nexstar contributors in Albany say a hospital in New Hampshire is being evacuated after an odor was detected.

While entertaining and not quite game breaking when it was discovered in the beta, the glitch that allowed players to have infinite supers during The Inverted Spire strike has been fixed.

This bug was awesome ... So awesome it hurt us a little bit to kill it. Thanks to those in the console Beta who helped us track this down.

As detailed by Crucible Design Lead Lars Bikken, the developers have been keeping their eyes on player's activities in the console beta and have used what they've learned to further tailor the multiplayer experience - in particular, online matchmaking.

Another issue found with the help of our friends in the console Beta. Also tweaked is the Warlock melee attack, which will now have the same range as other classes (the exception being when perks increase range). "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super". "Our PC friends will get a chance to experience a world with consistent base melee ranges", Hamrick said.

"We remain committed to creating a positive and fair in-game experience in all of our products, and believe that this is a necessary measure in bringing you a great gaming experience in Destiny 2 on PC". The Farm is located in the European Dead Zone, itself a new region in Destiny 2, and will only be accessible for one hour in the console beta for Destiny 2 later this month, with no details yet on whether the same will be true for the PC beta in August.

Will Destiny 2 on PC include a frame rate target option?

Increased damage helps Grenades feel as powerful as they should facing hordes of alien combatants and, more specifically, makes the longer cooldowns more palatable. It seems that the game didn't improve much at all, but we'll just have to wait and see until the game hits shelves next month.

This is something we had felt internally and have been slowly tuning up over the last several weeks.

Also tweaked are Super charge times (as a direct response to player feedback), and increased grenade damage and power drops in PvE.
