It looks like the File Size of the upcoming online-only multiplayer first person shooter, Destiny 2,” on Xbox One is a bit smaller than expected and this comes as good news for gamers. Recently, Bungie announced that the beta would also be available on PC later this month, including the system specs required to run the game.

Xbox One file size

The Xbox Marketplace recently revealed that the file size of “Destiny 2” on Xbox One would weigh only around 29.15GB. It is a bit smaller than expected, so, apparently, this is good news for the fans.

But it is noted that this is just the file size required for the base game.

It does not yet include the additional storage space needed if they purchase an expansion or a DLC that will be available post-launch.

The file size for PS4 and PC platform are not known yet, but it is assumed to be almost the same with free space required on Xbox One.

PC beta, specs announced

In its weekly update, Bungie announced that PC gamers who pre-ordered for the game would have early access to the beta on August 28. Then, the testing will be available to everyone, a day after on August 29 and end on August 31.

Moreover, the studio also recommends the systems specs required to run the beta better on PC. Players should upgrade to an Intel Core I5-7400 CPU and a Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB GPU.

Minimum and recommended specs

Bungie also detailed both the minimum and recommended specs that will support a smoother game experience on this platform. Notably, the complex visual and processing of the game demand for a high-end PC and the game developer also reiterated that these specs are still subject to change.

The minimum specs required to run the game are Intel - Core i3-3250 or AMD - FX-4350 CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB or an AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB GPU and 6GB RAM.

On the other hand, the recommended specs are Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X CPU and a Nvidia GTX 970 or an AMD Radeon R9 390 for GPU, with 8 GB RAM.

The new game serves as a direct sequel to the original title released back in 2014. It will pick up a year after the events of the first game’s last expansion, Rise of Iron.

In the next installment, players will explore the universe to discover new worlds and gain new powers to win their battle against Ghual and the Red Legion.

“Destiny 2” is currently in development by Bungie and published by Activision. It will be first launched on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One come September 6, 2017, while the PC version will be released on October 24.
