Bungie reveals Destiny 2 trailer and confirms PC version

Days after officially announcing Destiny 2, Bungie has released the first full trailer for its hotly anticipated sci-fi sequel. A PC version was also confirmed, a first for the series that started out on PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The trailer, following on from Tuesday's 'Last Call' teaser, shows the destruction of Earth's Last City and the tower that served as the original game's central hub. It also focuses on two characters from the original game: the po-faced Commander Zavala and fan-favourite Cayde-6.

The game will be released on 8 September with a gameplay reveal set for 18 May. An open beta will take place in the summer.
