New Destiny 2 Update Previewed With Patch Notes Ahead Of Its Release

A look at what's next for Destiny 2 players.

Comments

Another update is on the way for Destiny 2, and it's slated to arrive next week. A specific release date has not been announced yet, but Bungie has provided an early look at the patch notes to provide players with some idea of what to expect.

Update 1.0.6 will resolve the problems with the Bureaucratic Walk emote, which allowed players to glitch into areas they were not meant to reach. This issue was serious enough that the emote was pulled from sale and Trials was canceled for two weeks. The update also provides a fix for players who found themselves alone more often than intended. Specifically, Bungie says it has addressed an issue where players would "encounter empty public spaces too often in free roam."

The remainder of the patch notes deal with Crucible. The mercy rule has been expanded and can now be activated with a wider range of scores. In Clash, the score limit has been reduced to 50 (from 75), while Control's has been reduced to 90 (from 100). Additionally, zones held by the enemy in Control will have less of an impact on spawning.

You can get a full look at the patch notes Bungie provided below; there will be more included than just this in the full update. Right now, the developer only says that it will release "early next week." There's no word if this will be accompanied by server downtime, but that seems likely. Bungie has also outlined what's next for Destiny 2.
