Destiny 2’s gameplay reveal is slated for May 18 and in the run up to that it appears that new rumours are aplenty. One of these, via Reddit stood out. It claimed that Destiny 2’s PC version will use Battle.net or Blizzard as it is now known, as the app you can use to download and play Destiny 2 from.
Earlier, sources in the distribution chain speaking to Gadgets 360 had said that publisher Activision would be using popular PC client Steam instead.

With the Redditor using the term “Battle.net” instead of Blizzard, which is what it is now known as, it does seem a bit sketchy. Other additions include a new PVP mode, multiple weapon slots, abilities, and class changes.
“Golden Gun, Voidwalker, Striker, Nightstalker, Stormcaller, and Sunbreaker will all return, though they will all see massive changes. Bladedancer is being replaced by a class that uses an arc bow staff. Sunsinger is being replaced by a class that uses a solar sword. Defender is being replaced by void Captain America. PSTrials of Osiris is gone. It's called Trials of the Nine,” the post claims.
Destiny 2 will cost Rs. 4,299 on the PS4 and Xbox One and Rs. 3,499 for PC. At the moment, the game is up for pre-order on Flipkart and Games The Shop with the likes of Amazon India putting it up shortly.
Destiny 2 India distributor Worldwide CD ROM has confirmed with Gadgets 360 that this is the price for the game this year and pre-ordering nets consumers access to the Destiny 2 beta when it is made available.
