Fingers crossed today because Destiny 2 is getting a new update. After the long period of downtime over the last week, the Guardians hope that with Hot fix 188.8.131.52 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC runs more smoothly. As always, we are on the ball and will keep you up to date with all information about downtime.
18:05: Bungie also pushed the patch notes directly afterwards. You can find the link to them further down in the article.
6:00 p.m.: The update is finished. On the PC, the download is 120.2 MB in size. After downloading this, you should be able to log in again.
5:45 p.m.: The Destiny 2 servers just went offline. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for Bungie to finish importing the latest update.
What you need to know today: Hotfix 184.108.40.206 is in the starting blocks today and will ensure that Destiny 2 has to go offline for a while. Some guardians could already put their ears back, because last week the traditional “Update Tuesday” was exceptionally not a good day to play a round of Destiny 2.
As with any live service game, changes big or small can always cause unforeseen problems. However, we hope that this week will be better. Bungie has also made a promise to its players that they will “always act quickly to [Fehler in Destiny 2] to fix when they show up.”
Bungie has already prepared today’s update with an extended background maintenance. MeinMMO now tells you exactly when you can’t gamble and what errors are currently plaguing the loot shooter.
You can see more about the new DLC in advance in this Lightfall trailer:
You can also look forward to a Quality of Life update for Deep Sight weapons:
Maintenance on 01/31 – All times and server down
These times are important today: Bungie’s update routine for today is already set. They want to return to the usual downtime of 15 minutes (via. bungie.net).
Here are the exact times when you cannot gamble:
Important: Even if you have downloaded the update and are back in-game, you may experience connection issues until the end of maintenance at 7:00 p.m. You may also have to expect queues when logging in.
Also, keep in mind that third-party applications and the official companion app may not be accessible correctly, and you won’t be able to move gear or buy bounties for a while after the update.
This changes with Hotfix 220.127.116.11 in Season 19
That brings the hotfix today: As always, we’ll show you what problems Destiny 2 currently has. These are bugs that Bungie is already aware of, bugs that we’ve found ourselves, and bugs that our readers have brought to our attention.
Excerpt of the already known problems in Destiny 2:
Bungie also notes an issue where the “Next Artifact Unlock” feature is incorrectly showing “0/1” instead of the intended XP progression. However, this problem is purely visual. This means you can still get additional Artifact unlocks by earning XP.
If you encounter any other issues with the game, it is recommended that you report them directly to the official Bungie Help forums to bring them to the attention of the developers. Alternatively, you can leave us a comment if you are aware of other bugs in the game.
