Nvidia Showcase: the next-gen tech powering Bungie’s Destiny 2

Destiny 2

PCGamesN Nvidia Showcase posts are created in partnership with Nvidia.

Washington State-based developers Bungie are pioneers of the sci-fi shooter genre. Its Marathon videogame trilogy established a number of innovations and themes that were built upon with Halo – the studio’s universally acclaimed, billion dollar-grossing first-person shooter franchise. 

Now the developers are back and raising the bar for immersive FPS action even higher with Destiny 2. Here’s how Bungie’s latest science-fiction epic is pushing the capabilities of modern gaming hardware and next-gen technologies to its limits.

And, for a limited time, when you buy an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or a GTX 1080 graphics card, system, or laptop, you’ll get Destiny 2 when it launches on PC.

Sci-fi visuals to die for

Publishers Activision and developers Bungie have been closely collaborating with Nvidia on the PC edition of Destiny 2 during its development. Combining their development resources and advanced gaming technologies, their mission from day one has been to ensure PC players get the best possible performance and visual fidelity from the game.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Destiny 2 on PC would support native 4K, 4K Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR), as well as uncapped frame rates and field of view modification. Now, players who really want to unlock the next-gen beauty with Bungie’s shooter can experience the game in 4K High-Dynamic Range (HDR). The game also supports multi-GPU SLI configurations.

If you’re playing Destiny 2 with an HDR monitor, this technology enables you to immerse yourself in the game’s expansive sci-fi universe with a stunning level of visual quality. With Destiny 2 in HDR, you’ll get higher-peak brightness for gorgeous graphics, bolstered by bold saturated colors. You’ll also get exceptional contrast with HDR enabled for richer, more natural dark scenes.

Unlocking 4K

If you’re looking to play Destiny 2 on PC in 4K when it launches on October 24, you’ll be able to do so if your rig meets the requirements. You can meet the minimum system requirements with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 (or GeForce GTX 1050 if you’re upgrading). However, if you want the highest level of visual fidelity in Destiny 2 with 4K enabled, you’ll want to arm your PC with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Watch the gameplay video above captured on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti powered setup, which showcases Destiny 2’s Inverted Spire Strike Mission running on PC in eye-popping 4K at a buttery smooth 60fps.

Destiny 2 also hits PC with GeForce Experience fully integrated to further enhance the visual experience. This allows you to optimise your settings for the best possible system performance and it supports features like the ability to capture and stream gameplay with built-in technologies called ShadowPlay and Share.

If you are looking to upgrade your gaming hardware and want to take advantage of Destiny 2’s luscious sci-fi universe and visuals, there’s really no better time to do so. Score the game for a limited time by getting the GeForce GTX Destiny 2 Bundle. Buying the bundle also grants you three great pre-order incentives available when the game launches on PC on October 24: the Coldheart Exotic Rifle, the Kill Tracker Ghost, and the Salute emote.
