Reminder: Be Prepared For Tomorrow’s Launch By Pre-Loading Destiny 2 On PC

As of the writing of this post, there’s TECHNICALLY only one hour left of October 23rd in the MDT time zone, but hey it’s technically accurate. 

If you’ve pre-purchased Destiny 2 on PC and want to make sure your game is available for when servers go live at 10 am PDT tomorrow, here is your final reminder to pre-load the game in time for launch. Sitting at staggering 60+ GBs the final install size of Destiny 2 is going to eat up a good chunk of your hard drive.

So far pre-loading seems to be working fine on our end. I finished the 30+ GB download in just under 4 and a half hours. If you’ve got a slower internet connection you may want to let Destiny 2 download overnight. 


Here is a list of Destiny 2 launch times adjusted for local time zones: 

  • Pacific Time Zone: 10 AM 
  • Eastern Time Zone: 1PM 
  • British Standard Time: 6PM 
  • Moscow Time: 10PM 

It’s a little late to upgrade a rig before launch but here are the minimum specs for Destiny 2 on PC: 

CPU: Intel  Intel Core i3-3250 3.5 GHz or
Intel Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz 
Intel Core i5-2400 3.4 GHz or
