Bungie has announced that the Destiny 2 PC pre-load period will begin tomorrow, 18th October 2017.
The pre-release stream will allow players to get the enormous game client downloaded ahead of launch, and avoid missing any of the early excitement when the game launches on Tuesday 24th October.
The news was confirmed by the developer over on Twitter:

Destiny 2's PC version is available exclusively through publishing partner Blizzard's Battle.net service. If you've pre-ordered the game you'll be able to pre-load it through the Battle.net launcher starting tomorrow.
Although we don't know the exact time the pre-load is due to begin, you should have plenty of time to grab the full client over the next week or so, even with the most sluggish connection!
Earlier this week, Bungie lifted the lid on Destiny 2’s PC launch trailer and have also confirmed the game’s system requirements. From what we’ve seen the game looks gorgeous running on PC and the client's capable of running at 4K resolution with uncapped framerates. It also features a slew of customisable settings which are sure to keep the PC crowd happy.
