So, anyone double dipping on the PS4 version? I can't wait an extra month to play.

i want to because I can't wait but what's stopping me is lack of cross save so i'll need to start from scratch in October no matter what. Also, I'm not sure how much I'll get if I trade in the PS4 version towards the PC version. I'm not playing the game at the same time on both platforms. I'm not prepared to buy expansions for both platforms. When PC releases that's where I'll play.

This thread is a little confusing, for any one who pre-preordered through battle.net we don't have to do anything right? we get the beta the 28th.

Primary is still going to be PS4 but I'm quite anxious to try out the PC version.

Didn't preorder but got a code with my 1080ti so I'll have to wait till the 29th.

Heads up, Destiny 2 PC is 18% off both standard and deluxe editions on Green Man Gaming. You get the beta key immediately on checkout.

Damn it I have only 2-3h on 8/29 to play this thing before catching a plane to go to Pax :/ hope the servers don't completely melt.

Edit: followed the advice to order from Amazon to get early access beta key. Did not cancel since I might like the game.

I've got 28th and 29th off work. Never played Destiny 1. I'm pretty excited.

Does anyone know of a decent primer on lore/story (I know, I know) for D1?

They are at PAX too, surprised if they don't have PC stations.

http://www.ishtar-collective.net is great for reading the lore. They nicely chains relative cards to each other and create intended stories.

You want read Book of Sorrows, trust me: http://www.ishtar-collective.net/categories/books-of-sorrow

Then there is youtube channels like Byf's that are focused on exploring, explaining and connecting D1 lore: https://www.youtube.com/user/ReachForgeNetwork/videos

Lmao you seriously kidding me. So the full game is 29gb confirmed. The guy who downloaded the alpha of the game said it was 29gb, and that version is the dev build so it's most definitely this.

Also time to datamine the literal fuck out of this.

To everyone mentioning that PS4 codes worked, thank you! I had one sitting around from Amazon unused, and now it's preloading!

I mean... did you read OT?

Yeah my bad, didn't read far enough, I got caught up in "Code? What code? I didn't get a code!"

"If you have pre-order through Battle.Net you are good to go without any key redemption stuff."

Thanks!

Preloading. Used the Amazon exploit but will only cancel after the beta unless I love it.

Excited that there's SLI support already in the latest drivers, gives me hope for a really well optimized game.

Weird, I've had a preorder for physical since March and didn't get mine. I'll contact support
Might be simpler to just cancel and preorder again. Unless you have a smaller price attached to that old preorder.

I apologize for the request, but can someone link me to the DGAF PC clan, and the discord? I quoted the OP but it doesn’t seem to be working. A direct message will be much appreciated.

I wonder if they will offer per-class binds in the same way hero shooters have begun offering per-hero binds.

I doubt there will be as Destiny doesn't really need them, imo.

What would you bind differently between e.g. Warlock and Hunter?

They are embed into email tags, but shot you PM.

I like having dodge on mouse button in games that have a dodge (Hunter class ability) but wouldn't want all class abilities on a mouse button.

For example having a dodge on a hand that isn't also controlling directional movement is superior because if it's on a key such as F then it is hard to hit D and F in an non-awkward way. Suddenly dodging to the right feels clunky.

The way they have it now on V means I guess they want you to use your thumb but hitting V with my thumb isn't super ideal, or at least, I would prefer it on a mouse button.
