Get Destiny 2 for Free on PC with nVidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards

June 15, 2017

Now’s the time to upgrade your graphics card to the nVidia GeForce GTX 1080 or GTX 1080Ti, as nVidia has just revealed that for the next two weeks fans that purchase a new card will get Destiny 2 on PC for free when it is released on October 24th. It may be a slow 46 day wait for the PC version as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions launch on September 6, but Bungie has responded stating they want to make it right, and therefore it will take a little longer.

People who purchase a system or laptop that includes a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080Ti will also be eligible for their free copy of Destiny 2.

Two minutes of Destiny 2 footage sneaked in to the E3 2017 Sony press conference, and you can read our full article about it here.

Here’s the official details regarding purchasing a card during the valid timeframe:

In celebration of Destiny 2 coming to PC, gamers who purchase a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or GeForce GTX 1080-powered graphics card, system or laptop will receive the game when it launches on PC, and get early access to the PC beta (dates to be determined).

This limited time offer runs from June 13, 2017, at 6 a.m. PT through June 27, 2017.

“NVIDIA’s developer resources, advanced gaming technologies and breadth of its GeForce PC platform make them an invaluable partner,” said Pete Parsons, CEO of Bungie. “The GeForce PC platform offers technologies and performance that allow gamers to see the Destiny universe the way we envisioned it for PC players.”

“Destiny is a franchise that is enshrined in the gaming lore,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of Content and Technology at NVIDIA. “We’ve worked closely with Bungie and Activision to expand the Destiny universe onto the PC platform and help deliver cool gaming technologies and a great, community-based gaming experience in Destiny 2.”

Destiny 2 promises to be bigger and better than its predecessor, with the developers stating it will have more content on day 1 than Destiny did with all of its expansions included.
