Following the launch of Destiny, PC gamers waited almost three years to be able to play the game on PC. Despite Bungie continuously saying that PC port of Destiny has not been ruled out, but it never happened. However, Destiny 2 will come to PC along with the consoles, unlike the first one, and Bungie has revealed the graphical setting and control schemes for the PC version of the game.
During the gameplay reveal event of Destiny 2, Bungie had set up the PC version of the game and of course, we got to play it. Given that the control scheme is completely different from the console version of the game but, Destiny 2 on PC plays and feels something else, something way better than the controller. Even firing a weapon feels completely different experience from the console version.
Here is the default control scheme for the PC version of Destiny 2. Let’s start with the basics, WASD are the movement keys, TAB is for summoning the Ghost, E is for the melee attack, R for reloading, SHIFT is for sprinting, the arrow keys are for using the EMOTES, Left Mouse Button is for firing the weapon and the right mouse button is the aim, and the mouse wheel is for switching between Kinetic/Energy weapons.
Let’s get down to the abilities, in the numbered keys above the WASD, 1 is for Kinetic Weapon, 2 is for Energy Weapon, 3 is for Power Weapon. The Super ability can be activated with F, G is for interacting, V is for activating the class ability, C is for highlighting the player, and X is for class based ability.
As for the Graphical Settings, developer Vicarious Visions has done a great job by offering a lot of graphical options to tweak with, in the PC version of Destiny 2.
There was a total of 15 graphical options of the build we saw at the event. However, the number of these graphical settings could increase given that the game is in development and there is no release date decided for the PC version.
The graphical settings that were included in the build at the event and you can tweak are:
- Texture Anisotropy which is a fancy word for Anisotropic Filtering
- Ambient Occlusion
- Graphical Quality
- Motion Blur
- Texture Quality
- Foliage Detail
- Character Detail
- Shadow Quality
- Environment Detail
- Foliage Shadows
- Lightning Shading Details
- Depth Of Field
- Local Light Shadows
- Wind Impulse
Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at Bungie and is scheduled to launch on September 8, 2017, for PS4 and Xbox One and the PC version of the game will launch at a later date.
