Can Destiny 2 Become the Best Selling PC Game in 2017?

Categories Bests & Top Tens, Gaming Opinions
Today We will be discussing the features that can make Destiny 2 the best selling PC game of 2017.

Destiny 2 is already one of the most hyped games of 2017 and chances of it becoming the best selling PC game of 2017 are very high. The reason why I am talking about the PC version is that the consoles have their own exclusives that almost every time gets the best selling game awards. For Horizon Zero Dawn and Legend of Zelda for PS4, and XBOX has its own exclusives too. Another reason that I am not talking about consoles is that Destiny is capped at 30 FPS at consoles. So, the performance from Destiny 2 can be reaped only if you have a great PC.

So, today we will discuss the features of Destiny 2 that will support our statement. Let’s take down the best features of Destiny 2 one by one.


Story or the campaign of a PC game is a very important aspect to be a part of the best sellers list. As we have seen in the case of Half Life series, Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which is still considered as the best Call of Duty game because of its campaign, and how we can forget the amazing story of Bioshock Infinite for which it received kudos from many critics.

Now let’s come to the point. Destiny 2’s story starts exactly from where the original game left. Humanity’s Last Safe city has fallen to Ghaul, commander of Red Legion, who is also the main antagonist of the game. So, the synopsis of the story is that you need to gather the survivors, discover new weapons and combat abilities to defeat Ghaul and reclaim our home.

The campaign of the game can be played Solo or with friends in a three-player co-op. However, according to the developers, the campaign is designed keeping solo players in mind. Story missions are a bulk of new Destiny unlike the original which was centered for its multiplayer.

The game, according to Bungie a big step up in story telling with more cinematics than ever before with missions that are definitely going to lure you to play it to the end.

There will be side quests in the game, which is being termed as Adventures. These quests will help you to delve deeper into the story. Playing Missions that can be accessed from different locations with short narratives is definitely an exciting way of exploring the beautiful world of the game.

So, it looks like Destiny 2 has passed the first step of being a best seller. Now let’s talk about the second feature.

A Balanced Multiplayer

An action shooter like Destiny 2 has a nice Balanced Multiplayer mode to play with. And after watching some game play and trailers from the developers, we can say that the game definitely improves from the original game. With 6 player raids and 4v4 competitive multiplayer, this is definitely looking interesting to play with lots of space weapons to chose from.

There are different classes including Titan, Hunter, and Warlock each having a new sub-class, the Titan Striker, Warlock Dawnblade, and Hunter Gunslinger, respectively.

Each class and subclass have its own class abilities, super abilities and different weapons with which your decisions are going to be important like choosing the right class and sub-class according to your play style.

Countdown, a new PVP mode is included in the game, which is an attack-and-defend bomb planting mode that also has an Elimination element. There are now different modes for casual and competitive matches so that you don’t have to play with those highly skilled players who defeat you every time. With this, Bungie is also trying to get their name on the competitive shooters list which the original Destiny couldn’t achieve.

Now, Let’s move on to the last major feature of Destiny 2.


The last and most important ingredient of a successful PC game is the performance. We have already seen games like Mafia 3 failed only because of their poor performance on PC. The Division’s first-day server drama is also an example of this. And those games which have superb performance on PC are still making their way to the top seller’s list even after 2 years of release, I am talking about GTA V.

That’s why Destiny 2 has to perform at 60 FPS at least on 1080p resolutions. And after reading some posts and watching some videos on Youtube, I found that can easily achieve that benchmark even at 4K settings if you have the required hardware. By required hardware, I am talking about a GTX 1080 Ti and a processor equivalent to i7-7700K.

So, Destiny 2 is definitely cleared the performance test and can easily run at 60 FPS even with the mid range GPUs like the GTX 1050 Ti or an RX 570.

Final Thoughts

Now, it’s your choice whether you think that Destiny has the required ingredients to become the best seller of 2017. For me, being a big Call of Duty fan, I think that Call of Duty World War II is going to be the best and the most sold game of 2017.However, after discussing the main features of Destiny 2, it is definitely looking like a great game and more importantly better than its predecessor.
