We already saw the big gameplay reveal and announcement that Destiny 2 was coming to PC via battle.net, but now we know when as well! It's the height of E3 at the moment, so it's no surprise the news came today: while the console versions will be out over a month and a half earlier on September 6th, the PC will be getting the game on October 24th and you can pre-order it now:

There's also a new trailer, unfortunately showcasing a lot of PS4 exclusive content, but it's still worth a watch as it focuses on the main bad guy of the game:

And here's the official customer support post to go with the pre-order news:

If you're new to Destiny don't get fooled by the "Playstation exclusive content" thats only a 1month exclusive for playstation then they open the maps for the other console/pc plus the weapons are not that game breaking.

about the release day, im ok with that it just means the pc will have more time to fix the bugs(prob)

what's fun about this is if you have enough wow gold you can effectively buy destiny 2 using it. cash in your token for bnet store credit and then stack it all to pre purchase D2. There is some reddit post out there that details it better than my summary. albeit im so used to destiny on the xone im not sure i could switch to PC, especially doing trials of osiris or iron banner i might end up throwing my computer across the room XD

This is actually not true, there are strikes and exotics on the PS4 that we still haven't gotten on the xbox including, but not limited to, the Jade Rabbit and Zen Meteor, crucible maps, shaders, iron banner gear. Playstation payed more than microsoft, and their customers benefited. Honestly it doesn't change the game not having one or two items, but if history repeats there will be items that just don't come to Xbox and possibly PC until far after the game isn't really relevant anymore.

      Blizzard will be changing pricing on Blizzard Battle.net from USD to local currency in Canada, Japan and New Zealand before the end of the year.
      Blizzard will soon introduce support for JPY, CAD and NZD. Stored Blizzard Balance will be converted over to local currency and the conversion will affect all product pricing across all in-game shops. The transition to local currency will enable more payment methods and customers will be able to avoid paying unnecessary transaction fees.

      Later this year, we’ll be changing pricing on Blizzard Battle.net® from USD to local currency in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. We’re excited to introduce the change. It’s a key step toward growing our service globally and making it easier for players in these regions to shop and manage their accounts with us.
      Once this change takes effect, local currency will be used for pricing across Battle.net and within all of Blizzard’s game shops. The same goes for any Blizzard Balance that players in these regions have stored with us, which will convert over to their local currency. Existing recurring World of Warcraft® subscriptions will not be affected and will continue using USD. However, any new or renewed subscriptions and pre-paid Game Time cards will be offered in their local currency.
      While we haven’t finalized the exact date, the switch in these regions is currently slated to take effect before the end of this year. At that time, all product pricing and any stored Blizzard Balance will be converted from USD to the local currency based on the rate provided by one of the major exchanges.  
      For players in New Zealand, pricing will be inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST).
      We want to make as many of our players as possible feel at home in the Blizzard ecosystem, regardless of where they’re logging in from. We also want to make shopping with us seamless and easy. Switching to local currencies is a key step toward achieving this. Some of our customers will be able to avoid paying unnecessary transaction fees charged by banks and financial institutions. Furthermore, this change will also help us expand the types of payment we can accept, allowing us to add payment methods that we previously couldn’t offer because of their restrictions on transacting in USD.
      We’ll provide an update for our players in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand once we formally make the switch to their local currencies. In the meantime, we’ve put together a brief FAQ to provide you with more information on the coming changes.
      FAQ
      When are you switching to local currency in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand?
      Today, we announced that the change is coming and that it’s slated to take place before the end of the year. We will provide an update to players when the transition takes place.
      What products will be affected by these changes?
      The conversion to local currencies will affect all product pricing across Blizzard Battle.net® as well as all in-game shops and any stored Blizzard Balance. Any existing recurring World of Warcraft® subscriptions will continue to use USD. However, any new or renewed subscriptions and pre-paid Game Time cards will be offered in local currency.
      What happens to my stored Blizzard Balance?
      On the date that we make the switch in your regions, your stored Blizzard Balance will convert over to local currency.
      What rate Is Blizzard using to convert USD to my local currency?
      We will use the conversion rate provided by one of the major exchanges on the day we make the transition.
      Why did you decide to switch from USD to local currency in my region?
      This is an important step for growing our service globally, making it easier for our players around the world to shop and manage their accounts with us. Some of our customers will be able to avoid paying unnecessary transaction fees charged by banks and financial institutions We’re also able to accommodate more payment methods, adding ones we previously couldn’t offer because they have restrictions on transacting in USD.
      What currencies does Blizzard Battle.net support?
      Currently, Blizzard Battle.net supports the following currencies: USD, EUR, GBP, RUB, CNY, KRW, TWD, ARS, CLP, BRL, MXN, AUD. We will soon introduce support for JPY, CAD, and NZD.
      Blizzard Battle.net is still using USD in my region. When will you switch to my local currency?
      We’ll continually evaluate which new currencies to bring to Blizzard Battle.net, and we’ll update our players accordingly.
      What if my Blizzard Battle.net account is registered in the wrong country and I want to switch to my local region and currency?
      For help switching the region on your Blizzard Battle.net account, please go to: https://battle.net/support/article/7656.

      Appear offline, groups, profiles, avatars and more are on the Battle.net app beta now!
      Appear offline is finally here! We're also getting Discord-like groups, profiles, avatars and more in the Battle.net app beta that is now live.
      As previously datamined it seems we're finally getting some much wanted new features for the Battle.net app! The biggest of these is, of course, the long awaited, much maligned and slightly controversial appear offline option! We'll also be getting Discord-like groups, profiles, avatars and more. This is all going into beta right now and everyone can use it! Check out the full explanation and services below:
      Battle.net (source)
      Introducing new social features now available in the beta version of the Blizzard Battle.net® desktop app: the new Social tab, Blizzard Groups, profiles, avatars, and the ability to appear offline! To help get these into as many players’ hands as possible, starting today the beta version of the app is open to you and your friends—no invitation required.
      To switch to the beta version of the Blizzard Battle.net app, simply open your app settings, click on the Beta tab, and then click Switch to Beta Version.
      These features are designed to give Blizzard players even more ways to stay connected, and we’re looking forward to continuing to evolve the app and build even more ways for you to stay in touch and join forces for your next adventure.
       
      Social Tab
      Our new Social tab is your one-stop-shop for managing all your various social interactions. Whether you’re chatting with a friend or engaged in our new Blizzard Groups, you’ll easily be able to pick up where you left off in all of your conversations.
       
      Blizzard Groups
      Blizzard Groups are a new way for you to connect with your friends and plan your next mission. Players can create and join Groups based on their common interests. There, they can keep in touch, share strategies, and catch up on conversations they might have missed while offline.
      Each Group can have multiple text and voice chat channels, and Group administrators have a variety of tools to help manage membership, send out invitation links, and more.
      The Groups beta is available now in the Americas region. Head to the new Social tab to get the party started!

      Profiles
      Let the Blizzard world know a little bit more about you by customizing your profile!
      Your profile will allow you to select an avatar, share what’s on your mind with an About message, add links to where people can find you on social media, and more! You can also view profiles of other players if you’re curious about a pending friend request or what games a friend plays.
      Players using the beta in the Americas region can customize their profile through the View Profile button in the app header and Friends List drop-downs.

      Appear Offline
      Appear offline allows you to set your status to show you as “offline” to your Blizzard friends while remaining connected to Battle.net. This means you can launch the app and game away without distraction.
      Appearing offline will show you as offline to everyone in your Blizzard friends list. Once you have joined a game, the experience of appearing offline might be slightly different depending on which game you are playing. In the case of World of Warcraft, your guildmates will see your character come online and enter WoW’s in-game chat channels, and anyone who has you as a character-level friend will see you online on their friends list. Everyone outside of the same game as you will not see you online or playing any games.
      Do you see a friend who’s offline but you really want to send them a message while it’s on your mind? You can now send offline friends messages and they will receive them the next time they come online! While appearing offline you can still send and receive messages in the app, but it is up to you when you want to respond.
      We know a lot of you have been looking forward to big updates like this, and we’re excited to roll them out and get your feedback. Thanks for helping us out!

      Blizzard has updated the Battle.net app today with emoji support, chat history and friends listing.
      Below are the latest patch notes of version 1.9.0.9397.
      Blizzard
      Build 9397
      Feature Updates
      We made some updates to how you sort friends and other settings on your friends list:
      "Group Favorites" Setting:  Group all favorited friends together rather than being mixed throughout your friends list. "Sort by Activity" Setting: Friends will be grouped together when playing the same game or in Battle.net rather than sorted alphabetically. Showing and Hiding Offline Friends: You now have more control over how offline friends are displayed in your friends list. We also added chat history to make it easier to keep a conversation going.
      Closing Battle.net no longer clears chats messages with friends. Messages will now be stored for 28 days. Last but not least, emoji support is here!
      Feeling spunky, giddy, cranky, or any other emotion? Try copy and pasting emoji into chat messages! Bug Fixes
      Fixed an issue that was preventing users from initializing Streaming on beta builds. Fixed a bug that caused games to sort incorrectly. Hearthstone will no longer become unresponsive in certain circumstances when Streaming is enabled.

      Today isn't just a big day for WoW with patch 7.3, but we are also getting the Destiny 2 open beta! The consoles have had their go and the PC beta has already been improved based on the feedback from the console players. If you pre-ordered the game then you've been playing the beta since yesterday, but for the rest, you can now start downloading it on the Blizzard/Battle.net app and it will last through August 31st, so you'd better get in there in the three days that it's up!
      Here are some videos to pass the time while the game downloads:
      Some PC gameplay, from the first story mission:
      Then we have the villain introduction:
