Destiny 2 PC Beta preload, commands, and possible error codes info revealed

In a recent update on the official video game blog, Bungie provided more information on Destiny 2’s Open Beta on PC. First of all, it has been confirmed that the preload of the beta client is available for all those who have pre-ordered the game.


In addition, a summary in an image has been published that effectively explains the mapping of mouse and keyboard commands: you can analyze it by looking at the image above.

Bungie also confirmed the presence of an in-game chat but also specified that a private communication channel for the teams will only arrive at the launch of the game scheduled for 24 October.

Below you will find a number of possible problems with the Destiny 2 Open Beta on PC:

1. Players may encounter issues when playing the Destiny 2 Beta with drivers that are out of date. Updating drivers to the latest version grants the best experience when playing Destiny 2 on PC.

2. The Destiny 2 Beta may not run when installed to a folder with some localized character types in its name (e.g. Greek, Cyrillic, Kanji, etc.). Players should ensure that they install the Beta to a path that does not include these character types, or use the default install location.

3. Players may encounter issues when joining the Fireteam of another player on their same local area network. Players who encounter this issue should ensure that they have UPnP enabled in their network settings.

4. MSAA is still under development. As such, players may encounter various issues including visual artifacts and performance degradation when using MSAA.

5. Multi-GPU support is still in development. Players may encounter issues including visual artifacts and performance impacts when using NVIDIA SLI. AMD Crossfire support is not available in the Destiny 2 PC Beta.

6. The Destiny 2 Beta must be launched from Blizzard’s Battle.net app. If players launch the Beta client directly from the executable, they may receive an error message or the Destiny 2 Beta client may become unresponsive. Players who encounter this issue should close the Beta client through the user interface or by pressing Alt+F4, and proceed to launch the Destiny 2 Beta using the “Play” button in the Destiny 2 tab of the Blizzard app.

Destiny 2 will release on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6 and will arrive on PC on October 24th. The Open Beta on PC will start tomorrow for players who have pre-ordered the game, while it will be available for everyone else from August 29th to 31st.
