Destiny 2 For PC Prohibits Some Capture and Overlay Software

More people have pre-ordered Destiny 2 than the original with months left before release

Today, Bungie revealed the details regarding the content that will be playable in Destiny 2 PC beta.

Those who wish to capture footage of Destiny 2 while playing in Exclusive Fullscreen can use a dedicated streaming PC, as well as capture hardware like Elgato and AVerMedia.

The first Destiny beta was a huge success, but the number of players that participated in the Destiny 2 beta was even bigger. Still, considering that pretty much every Twitch streamer under the sun uses either OBS or XSplit, these rules are definitely going to cause some issues come launch day.

PLEASE NOTE: Other recording applications, such as Dxtory, Razer Cortex, Fraps have similar restrictions to those outlined above.

It sounds like the upcoming PC version of Destiny 2 will not play nice with a whole lot of popular PC software and application that PC gamers like to use. Those programs can still be used to stream, but only if Windowed Mode (including Borderless Fullsceen) is used. Notification features may still be provided through the third-party application.

Not only this, but some features of other third-party applications. Bungie also included some additional tuning into the PC beta after getting feedback on stuff like power ammo and super abilities. For more on the PC version of Bungie's shard-world shooter, which supports an uncapped frame rate, read IGN's Destiny 2 hands-on impressions to find out why "PC will likely be the best home for Bungie's online-only multiplayer shooter".

PLEASE NOTE: Third-party applications which repeatedly attempt to insert code into the Destiny 2 PC client may potentially impact game performance. "If this is your first dance with Destiny, be sure to tell us how it feels", the game developer also states.

Destiny 2 PC beta will start on August 28 only for players who pre-ordered the game.
