While the PC version of Destiny 2 has been delayed until October, PC gamers do get a taste of the title from August 29 to August 31 next week.
One such carrot incentive is early access to the Open Beta. If you pre-order this weekend, you'll be granted 24-hour early jump start starting August 28 (that's as early as Monday next week!). Couple with the extra gameplay time, you'll also be able to enjoy some more practical reward in the form of fiscal savings: as of writing the best deal for Destiny 2 for US gamers resides at digital retailer Green Man Gaming with a 18% off discount for the Battle.net key of the game.

Because Destiny 2 is a region locked title, you should make sure you're buying the proper copy of the game. As listed above gamers residing in US can pick up the game at GMG for 18% off (a $10.80 savings) for $49.19. The same percentage discount also applies toward the Destiny 2: Digital Deluxe Edition, which gets you a $18 discount from its hefty $100 list price.
Conversely, UK and EU gamers can buy from both Green Man Gaming or GamesPlanet. (If you click on the GMG link, you'll be redirected to your proper regional key). At GamesPlanet, they are only selling keys for European region for Destiny 2, so if you're in North America - shop at GMG.
Destiny 2 will release on October 24 for the PC. The game is near its September 6 release date for the console.
