Unlike the first game, Destiny 2 is coming to PC. PC gamers have had to patiently wait a few extra weeks since its launch on September 6 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Now the wait is nearly over. The cooperative third-person shooter will arrive on PC next week on October 24. Bungie and Activision have released a new launch trailer showing off the PC version.

Destiny 2’s PC launch is synchronized around the world, which gets tricky thanks to the whole timezone thing. There’s a handy map you can use below. For the US, Destiny 2 goes live at 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern.
