Destiny 2 updates companion app, has potential to play at 60 FPS (but won’t)

As you’re rearranging your life schedule to get in some serious Destiny 2 game time when the beta starts up next week, don’t forget that there’s one thing you can do right now to prepare for the second coming of Bungie. You can download the official Destiny 2 companion app, which is coincidentally the same app as for the original Destiny, only now upgraded with even more features for the sequel.

The improved app informs you about the latest game news and updates, allows you to make and mange your clan, helps you coordinate efforts between your friends, and delivers all manner of information about weapons and gear.

One thing you won’t be doing when you play the beta is doing it at 60 frames per second. This is because while that is technically possible, the team decided to cap it at 30 fps as a trade-off. “Could we make a Destiny game that ran at 60 fps?” Bungie said in Edge magazine this month. “Yes, but the space would be smaller, it would be less cooperative, and there’d be fewer monsters to shoot. That’s not the game we want to make.”
