Destiny 2's PC beta will include access to the game's opening mission "Homecoming" as well as access to a three-player Co-Operative Strike called "The Inverted Spire and the game 4 vs 4 competitive multiplayer modes. The trailer below also confirms that the game will support an unlocked framerate and 4K resolutions on PC.

Those recommended specs are a tad odd -

Intel - Core i5-2400 or AMD - Ryzen R5 1600X

The 1600X is definitely a lot faster than the 2400 by quite a margin, Not even in the same realm.Quote
