Destiny 2 releases September 8 and it’s coming to PC – here’s the reveal trailer and more information

Bungie has dropped the Destiny 2 reveal trailer along with some basic storyline details, retail and digital options, and confirmation of a PC release.

The video provides a look at the new story in Destiny 2 where the “last safe city on Earth” has fallen and is now occupied by a new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion.

As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players will need to master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces to reclaim their home.

The video above, Rally the Troops, shows two of the Vanguard, which are leaders of the Guardians. In Destiny 2, players head off to new destinations around the solar system and while exploring, will find an “expansive amount of activities.”

Bungie said there will be plenty for solo, cooperative and competitive players to do in game.

The first hands-on gameplay reveal livestream will be broadcast on May 18.

Destiny 2 is now available for pre-order in standard, and Collector’s Edition as well as the Digital Deluxe and Limited Edition.

As and as previously reported, pre-ordering the game nets early access to the beta with dates to be announced, but it’s slated for sometime this summer.

Looks like the information in the leak earlier today was spot on, even the PC boxart.

Destiny 2 releases worldwide on September 8 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and as of press time, Bungie suggests a minimum of 68GB available hard drive storage will be required.

There will be additional, timed exclusive content on PlayStation 4. To play online, users will need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Until Destiny 2 is released, current players can enjoy Age of Triumph in Destiny 1.

It’s the last live update to the game, and should provide players with plenty to do and accomplish in the meantime.
