Destiny Update 2.0.0 Vital Information

At the conclusion of Solstice of Heroes on August 28, Destiny 2 will be updated to prepare for the launch of Forsaken. In the week between August 28 and September 4, players will see some unusual behavior in-game as we make the transition into Year 2.

Here’s a short list of what players should be prepared for, with more details to come at a later date:

In general, collections will be unavailable. Specifically, this includes the collections for emblems, as well as Exotic weapons and armor. If players want to have an emblem or Exotic item in their inventory during this week, they will need to prepare their inventory ahead of time. (Edited 8/02 at 5:50 p.m. PDT: While collections will be unavailable, items stored within the Vault may continue to be accessed.)

Nightfall strike scoring will not be available. We’ll have more information about strikes and how they’re changing in Forsaken in the coming weeks.

This is all in an effort to set the table for the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken on September 4, 2018. Pardon our dust, and please plan accordingly.

Cayde’s Exotic Stash

Since the reveal of Destiny 2: Forsaken, players have asked whether or not Cayde’s Exotic Stash will be included with pre-orders directly from platform online marketplaces. We can confirm that this pre-order bonus will be available to all players who purchase through the PlayStation, Xbox, and Battle.net online stores before launch.

Additionally, shown below is what players can expect to become available to them in Year 2, based off of title ownership.

For information on purchase eligibility from other retailers, players should visit the official destinythegame.com page.
