Video game news round-up: Destiny 2 launch, LA Noire returns and PUBG passes 10 million

Nvidia and Bungie just released a clip showcasing what Destiny 2 looks like when it's running 4k at 60 fps, and yes, it's for the PC version.

Now it's no mystery that Destiny 2 will perform better on the PC than on the PS4 and Xbox One, but thanks to the gameplay video, everyone can get a good look at what's in store.

Destiny 2 4K, 60 FPS Is As Smooth As Butter

Destiny has always been limited to consoles, but that's all changing with Destiny 2, as the upcoming game is landing not only on the likes of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X but also on the PC.

That means the developer can take the graphics to all new heights because, as everyone knows, PCs are on a whole 'nother level in terms of performance.

On that note, the 4K trailer of Destiny 2 is incredible, and it'll likely leave fans wanting more since the video lasts only about a minute and a half, after all.

Note: To access the 4K option, users will need to view the video via Google Chrome.

It should be pointed out that Nvidia published the clip in partnership with Bungie and Activision, promoting the GTX 1080 graphics card. That said, the GPU maker is bundling the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti with a free copy of Destiny 2 for users who purchase either one between June 13 and June 27.

Destiny 2 For The PC vs PS4, Xbox One Versions

As mentioned earlier, the first Destiny was only for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, and because of that, players have never witnessed the game's universe in 4K at 60 fps — that is, until Oct. 24, which is the release date of the PC version of Destiny 2.

While console gamers will get to immerse themselves in a 4K environment, they unfortunately won't get to experience it at 60 fps. In other words, Destiny 2 will be capped at 30 fps on the PS4 Pro and even on the "world's most powerful console," the Xbox One X.

As a consolation of sorts, PS4 Pro gamers will get some timed-exclusive content, though, such as the Strike called Lake of Shadows, the ship City Apex, an exotic weapon named Weapon Borealis, and the PVP map Retribution.

Destiny 2 Release Date

To recap, Destiny 2 is scheduled to roll out to the PS4 and Xbox One on Sept. 6, which is two days earlier than the initial Sept. 8 release date, and to the PC via Battle.net on Oct 24.

Meanwhile, the beta for the PS4 is set go live on July 18 and for the Xbox One on July 19. On the other hand, the beta for the PC will be available sometime in August. Take note that only those who preordered the game will be eligible to join the beta.

It's also worth clearing up that Destiny 2 won't be arriving to the Nintendo Switch, as it's been deemed "pretty unrealistic" by the project lead Mark Noseworthy himself.

Long story short, Destiny 2 is looking great in 4K at 60 fps, but it's for the PC only.
