Destiny The Taken King Pre-Order
Pre-order bonuses for "Destiny: The Taken King"

“Destiny” 2.0 is already underway with the release of the new update preceding the launch of The Taken King expansion. Previously, developer Bungie has detailed the full patch notes, specifically the different changes and additions to the existing game.

Aside from introducing some game-changing new features, the latest update also includes some balances and improvements in weapons. Specifically, some of the adjustments is geared towards significantly improving how players go through “Destiny,” as in the case of the nerfed Thorn weapon, to avoid its overpowered ability used time and again to decimate some players.

However, not everything is going smoothly for “Destiny” players. Those on the Xbox One are reportedly experiencing downloading issues with the patch. Bungie is already handling the investigation of the current issue, but according to GameSpot, this is not the only problem that is preventing “Destiny” 2.0 from having a smooth launch.

There are even some players who have yet to get their in-game shaders after preordering “Destiny” The Taken King. Bungie is also aware of the issue and is currently conducting an investigation.

Apart from the Xbox One users, “Destiny” players, who are still on the old-gen consoles, are consistently plagued by the problem of space in their hard drives. Considering the notice that Bungie had announced with the upcoming “Destiny” 2.0 update regarding the necessary space, it appears that not everyone can easily comply with the space requirements.

For some players, however, Activision has given a helping hand to those who need space in the form of a free hard drive. According to VG 24/7, Activision had sent an official statement addressing old-gen console users and informing them that they can contact the publisher in case they are experiencing limited space issues for downloading the “Destiny” 2.0 update.

One fan apparently did, and according to the source, Activision had sent over a 32 GB flash drive. One thing to note, however, is that the files needed for “Destiny” 2.0 update still need to be downloaded and installed on the internal hard drive of the PS3 or Xbox 360.

The 32 GB hard drive can still be used to transfer existing game files while the players make use of the space for “Destiny.” The availability of Activision’s hard drive help may be limited to certain countries, though the publisher did not specify if this is the case.
