Destiny 2 For PC Prohibits Some Capture and Overlay Software

It sounds like Bungie is being extra careful about third-party apps which might insert code into its own game client, in order to prevent exploits which might enable cheating.

The PC beta for Destiny 2 will start later this month and a lot of players are very excited for it. Bungie recently revealed what kind of system requirements the beta shall have and they are surprisingly in check with low-to-mid end systems. Capturing with Elgato or AVerMedia and using NVIDIA Shadowplay and AMD ReLive. Still, considering that pretty much every Twitch streamer under the sun uses either OBS or XSplit, these rules are definitely going to cause some issues come launch day. Those programs can still be used to stream, but only if Windowed Mode (including Borderless Fullsceen) is used.

PLEASE NOTE: Other recording applications, such as Dxtory, Razer Cortex, Fraps have similar restrictions to those outlined above. For those more interested in collaborative gameplay, the open beta will also feature one of the game's strikes, the Inverted Spire.

On a new Destiny 2 help page that appeared today, Bungie breaks down why some streaming software and other third-party applications may not work as intended with the game.

"Who's talking" and visual notification features, such as those provided by Discord or Mumble, are not compatible with Destiny 2.

Hardware Monitoring Framerate and statistics overlays, such as those provided by EVGA Precision XOC, MSi Afterburner, and Fraps, are not compatible with Destiny 2. According to the developer, the PC version of the game will have limitations for particular PC and third-party programs.

Activision has high expectations for the upcoming Destiny 2, and based on early signs, it seems that the sequel will likely outperform its predecessor.
