At long last, the minimum and recommended specifications for the PC version of Destiny 2 have been revealed. Thankfully, you won't need an insane machine to be able to run the game, Bungie announced today.

At minimum, to run Destiny 2 on PC, Bungie said you will need either an Intel Core i3-3250 or AMD FX-4350 for your processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB for your graphics card, and six gigabytes of RAM.

The recommended specifications are a bit more demanding. Bungie recommends you play with either an Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X for your CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390 for your GPU, and eight gigabytes of RAM.

"These are the specs for the beta," Bungie said. "They could change before launch on Oct. 24. It all depends on how things play out."

Bungie confirmed that last week's beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was their biggest beta ever.

"We’re looking so forward to hosting you for this crucial testing op," Bungie's post read. "It’s been a long time since Bungie has served gamers on anything other than a console. This is an exciting time for us in our studio, and we’re packing a lot of love into the PC beta. We hope you’ll join us for this tactical pre-party."

The studio also revealed that the early access period for the game's PC beta will begin on Aug. 28, while the open beta will begin on Aug. 29. The beta is set to end altogether on Aug. 31. Six days later, the game will release on PS4 and Xbox One, before the PC release on Oct. 24.
