Destiny 2 update 2.9.0 is launching today and will help kick start Season 11 and the Season of Arrivals. Bungie has yet to reveal what new stuff will be included as part of Season 11, although a few leaks have popped up. This includes the news that the Hive is likely to be the big bads during the Season of Arrivals, and that a new DLC will be released in a few months. While the development team behind the hit shooter has been keeping things under wraps until launch day, we do know when the new D2 update will be going live.
WHEN DOES THE NEW DESTINY 2 UPDATE DROP TODAY?
Bungie has confirmed that today’s Destiny 2 update time has been set for 10am PT, or 6pm GMT if you live in the UK.
Guardians should also know that Destiny 2 servers will be going offline for maintenance an hour before the new patch is available to download.
This downtime is only set to last around 60 minutes and should mean everyone can get back online to download the new update promptly.
During maintenance, Bungie will be hosting a live stream that will cover what is being planned for Destiny 2 Season 11.
The official Bungie reveal will be held at 9am PT, and is expected to include all the news fans will need for the new season, as well as whatever DLC plans the development team has planned.
A message from the Destiny 2 support team adds: “When Season of the Worthy ends at the weekly reset on June 9, 2020, there will be a number of items, activities, and Triumphs that will no longer be available to players… On Tuesday, June 9, Update 2.9.0 will be available to players.”
