Destiny 2 For PC Prohibits Some Capture and Overlay Software

Even if they have to wait longer to enjoy the beta version of the highly anticipated shooter game, "Destiny 2" PC players will be able to enjoy the Countdown and Control multiplayer modes during the exclusive beta edition.

In an effort to keep the playing field level for Destiny 2 on PC, support for third-party streaming and game capture applications will be limited.

Hardware capture through methods such as Elgato, AVerMedia, or a dedicated streaming PC is supported.

Destiny 2 will be released on September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One, and on October 24 for PC. Bungie also notes that both AMD ReLive and NVIDIA Shadowplay are supported. Once the beta goes live, many players will find that certain game capture and overlay apps will not work like they do for virtually every other PC game. The following are examples of features which may not be compatible with Destiny 2 on PC.

OBS and XSplit Window Capture mode is supported. Windowed Mode/Borderless Fullscreen does not have these restrictions, and you can use OBS and XSplit here instead. Additionally, features like "Who's Talking" and other voice communication notifications found in programs like Discord and Mumble aren't supported.

Still, if you were planning to be part of the big beta hype wave and show off the new PC updates to the game, you may want to doublecheck over Bungie's recommended settings above.

Some overlays for chat and hardware monitoring will also be blocked from functioning.

Destiny 2 PC beta will start on August 28 only for players who pre-ordered the game.

So then, Bungie has chosen a lack of some compatibility in exchange for a more secure and cheat-free experience for Destiny 2. The game resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client.
