Bungie has today revealed that in order to make PC gaming as hacker-free as possible, many applications will be banned from Destiny 2. The developer clarified that they wish to make it nigh on impossible for third party software to input code into the game client.

EVGA Precision XOC, MSI Afterburner, FRAPS and more will not be able to host their usual overlay interface in-game. If you’re still wanting to capture your PC Destiny 2 gameplay, methods such as NVIDIA Shadowplay, AMD ReLive and AVerMedia will still work, however XSplit and OBS will not. It may be time to brush up on your knowledge of the applications that will be allowed in Destiny 2 on PC if you wish to stream or upload content.

Popular voice communication software Discord’s visual notification feature will also not work, however there is no mention of Ventrilo or TeamSpeak. Destiny 2 will of course have it’s own in-game voice communication on Windows PC.

Banned from Destiny 2

Bungie has stated that “if players experience decreased performance when running certain applications alongside Destiny 2, their first step should be to ensure that any features of third-party applications which could potentially be attempting to insert code into Destiny 2 are disabled. If disabling such features does not resolve the performance impact, players may wish to try closing the third-party application.” This means they’re not exactly sure which applications will be banned from Destiny 2, but let’s hope it doesn’t prove to be too difficult to have some typical applications running in the background such as iTunes or Winamp.

A few days ago Rocket Chainsaw covered the announcement of the exclusively themed Destiny 2 DualShock 4 controller available for PlayStation 4, and you can find out more about it here.

Destiny 2 launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 6, while the Windows PC version will be available on October 24, 2017.

Razer has today unveiled two new pieces of peripherals that they are calling “streamer-certified”. The new Razer Kiyo webcam boasts 60FPS at 720p and 30FPS at 1080p, while the new Razer Seiren X is a USB condenser microphone which looks about as professional as they get. The new Razer Kiyo is a FullHD webcam with a twist. The camera literally has a twistable light around its edge known as a ring-light, allowing streamers to adjust the level of light on their face for optimal screen-in-screen streaming of their reactions as they play the latest games. Check out the Razer Kiyo and Ra...

Professional wrestling and video games are two forms of entertainment that are made for each other. On one hand you have staged performances with some of the most charismatic athletes on the planet, and on the other you have the perfect platform to replay and create all your favourite wrestling moments. WWE 2K18 is the latest iteration in a long list of yearly WWE games, and since the legendary WWE Chairman Vince McMahon continues to buy out his competitors, it now has a monopoly on the genre. ‘Be like no one’ is the motto for WWE 2K18, featuring cover superstar Seth Rollins and is the bi...

Bungie has just confirmed that PC users can now get the Destiny 2 preload on their computers in anticipation for the game’s release on the 24th of October, next Tuesday. As long as you’ve got the game pre-ordered and activated on your Blizzard App, the Destiny 2 preload should start automatically. Note: we had to do a Blizzard App update before it began the install. Your Destiny 2 preload will unlock at 4AM Eastern Australian Standard Time next Tuesday, so it may be worthwhile beginning the 38GB download as soon as possible. You are one of humanity’s last remaining Guardians. Yo...

In its opening hours, The Evil Within 2 features some of the most arresting and beautiful horror imagery I’ve seen in a video game in years – even if the designers still wear their influences on their sleeve. As the red curtains (lifted from Twin Peaks) pull back and you discover all manner of bizarre time-frozen exhibits (reminiscent of The Cell), the game nonetheless sets up its own creepy and abstract world, where murder can be turned into a work of art. On the strength of the opening and other moments in the first third of the game, The Evil Within 2 is a must-buy for h...

While others cringe and recoil at the very mention of South Park, I’ve long been a massive fan of the lewd and crude humour of the show. With political incorrectness and current affairs always at the front, South Park tackles its subjects with an irreverence that is unmatched in the medium. This is also true of gaming, where no game (even South Park games) matches the level of irreverence that Matt and Trey’s baby has shown over the last two decades. That was until South Park: The Stick of Truth came along. The Stick of Truth perfectly encompassed the myriad of parts that make South Park w...
