Launching in less than 12 hours, Destiny 2 has finally arrived on the PC after multiple delays as Bungie looks to make sure everything is in top shape. With initial performance review looking solid as the game runs at uncapped framerates with 4K resolution – the PC edition of Destiny 2 has unceremoniously been named the version to play on by multiple critics.
If you’re a PC gamer who’s still undecided as we reach the eve of release, the good news is that multiple retailers are offering incentives to sway your purchasing power. Even as you’re deciding between Destiny’s Digital Deluxe vs Digital Standard Edition, both copies are available at discounts up to 15% off. This brings the Digital Deluxe down to $84.99 while the Digital Standard Edition drops down to $50.99.

What’s in Destiny 2’s Digital Deluxe Edition, Anyways?
The main difference between Destiny 2‘s Digital Deluxe vs Digital Standard Edition is squarely on the two included expansion pass:
- Cursed of Osiris Expansion 1
- Unnamed Expansion 2
You’ll also receive “premium” digital content that pads the “Deluxe” offering:
- Cabal themed emblem
- Legendary Sword
- Legendary Emote
Having said that, the legendary sword “Traitor’s Fate” is apparently a pretty decent weapon given the requirement of having to finish the campaign in order to access it.
Given pre-order status is still live until the clock strikes 10:00 AM Pacific Time, the Coldheart exotic rifle is also available in either the Deluxe or Standard Edition pre-order (it’ll be unlocked to all other gamers come December).
The price for the expansion pass is pegged at $34.99 for both expansions, which means the value of the Deluxe comes out to this:
- $60 – Destiny 2 base game
- $35 – Expansion Pass
- $5 – “Premium” content
It’s your call whether or not the legendary sword is worth the extra $5 given its tucked away 20 hours of gameplay. Our thought? Probably not worth it unless you’re a hardcore Destiny fan that’s migrating over to the PC. All deals above should be valid for release week, though the coupon for the UK/EU copy of Destiny 2 at GamesPlanet may expire on official release time. Destiny 2 activates on Battle.net and all digital retailers listed above are authorized Activision Blizzard distributors.
Destiny 2 goes live on the PC on October 24, 2017. For system requirements and PC launch calendar and details, check here.
