With all the news surrounding Destiny 2 in recent weeks, it’s easy for those on consoles to forget that the PC version of the game isn’t even out yet. However, that changes on Oct. 24 when the game starts rolling out sequentially worldwide and Bungie has now provided a map which details when exactly fans in each region can expect to be able to access the game, as well as an update to the minimum and recommended specs that were announced before the PC beta.

To start, the map below reveals that fans in the Americas, Europe and Russia will be able to access Destiny 2 on Oct. 24. Unfortunately, those in Asia and Australia will only be able to get in on the action on Oct. 25 because of time zones.

In addition, here is a list detailing the minimum and recommended system requirements:

MINIMUMRECOMMENDED
CPU: IntelIntel Core i3-3250 3.5 GHz or
Intel Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz
Intel Core i5-2400 3.4 GHz or
i5 7400 3.5 GHz
CPU: AMDAMD FX-4350 4.2 GHzAMD Ryzen R5 1600X 3.6 GHz
GPU: NVidiaNvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB or
GTX 1050 2GB
Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB or
GTX 1060 6GB
GPU: AMDAMD Radeon HD 7850 2GBAMD R9 390 8GB
RAM:6GB8GB
Operating System:Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit (Recommended)
Hard Drive Space:68GB available hard drive space

Surprisingly, the requirements to play Destiny 2 on even the recommended settings aren’t too demanding. For example, a GTX 1050 retails for as little as $119.99 in some locations and a GTX 1060 will “just” cost you $100 more. However, you’ll definitely want to set aside a fair amount of room on your Hard Drive as 68 GB for a single application is quite a lot.

While it’s unfortunate that those on the PC needed to wait nearly two extra months before they could dive into Destiny 2, they’ll at least be able to hit the ground running as there is already plenty of information from the console version of Destiny 2 which easily applies to its PC counterpart. For example, we have some write-ups about Trials of the Nine, How to check if the servers are up and various Exotic quests. In addition, content such as the Prestige version of the Leviathan raid will be up and running, meaning there will be little guesswork about ways to efficiently clear it.

Destiny 2 released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept. 6 and, again, the PC version arrives on Oct. 24/25.
