Destiny 2 PC beta launches – Errors quickly fixed and region lock notice

The moment PC Destiny 2 players have been waiting for has finally arrived, the PC beta has just kicked off.  The Saxophone errors when trying to launch the game were the main issue but Bungie was on the case quickly and it appears that restarting with the Battle.Net app may help. Bungie has updated to say that these errors are “resolved” and all players should no longer have any issues.

In related news, note that Destiny 2 on the PC utilises Battle.Net’s region system and players wanting to have their friends in their list will need to be in the same region. The update on Bungie’s support page explains.

Blizzard regions are the player’s selected environment through which they are accepting to play with other players. Players may only play with other players who have selected the same region, and cannot join the games or activities of players in other regions. The player’s selected region will also limit who appears in-game in a player’s Friends Lists and Clan Roster.

When players launch Destiny 2 from the Blizzard desktop application, they will have the option to select their region of play. If the player takes no action to change their region, it will match the default region of the player’s Blizzard account.

Players who wish to change their Blizzard region may do so by closing the Destiny 2 application, visiting the Destiny 2 landing page in the Blizzard desktop application, and selecting their desired region from the drop down above “Play”.

It’s not ideal but that’s the way it is with Battle.Net.
