The Destiny 2 servers went down today, but the good news is that it was all part of Bungie’s maintenance plan for September 2.

The team behind the hit shooter is today releasing a new update and hotfix to fix some of the most annoying issues since the start of Season 15.

Guardians should be able to log back into the game and start downloading the latest Destiny 2 update released by Bungie.

The patch notes for today’s changes are pretty comprehensive, and while the development team calls it a hotfix, it does a lot more than fix one or two issues.

Full details can be found below as part of today’s official Destiny 2 update and includes the following changes:



  • Astral alignment

    • Fixed an issue where the encounter with the Ether Collection could be soft-locked when all Ether Strings were destroyed.

    • Fixed an issue where objects could be removed when players exited the activity while wearing them, causing the activity to be soft-locked.


  • Vault of glass

    • Fixed an issue where Atheon would sometimes summon an invisible barrier to prevent Guardians from entering the Vault of Glass.



  • Fixed an issue where the ‘pre-order’ text string for the 30th anniversary wrapped and overlapped the title in Japanese, Polish, and Russian.

    • Other localization solutions for Japanese and Polish. Russian is fixed in Hotfix

  • Fixed an issue where Top Tree Dawnblade’s description in German called “Sliding” instead of “Gliding”.
