The much anticipated Destiny 2.0.0 update hit today and brings with it a bevy of new content for fans. Included is a raised level cap to 34, refined stats and tweaks to practically every weapon in the game. Unfortunately, however, Xbox and PlayStation owners alike have been experiencing major issues with the download.
Most users are experiencing hang-ups at various intervals of the download, with almost nobody over 60% completed even after three hours of downloading.
“58% for me. But it moved 2% in the past hour,” said papercamm on NeoGAF.
“Oh my god. Microsoft does NOT want me playing #Destiny 2.0. Download’s frozen again at 36% >.<” tweeted Author Fenix.
“Mine hasnt stopped at 1 percent. its just going as slow as a prius in a 75 zone. been around 1.5-2 hours. 38% downloaded and like 70% on content transferred. I’ve passed 2 kidney stones and this comes close,” said reddit user Str8lurk1n
The only fix so far seems to be to do a hard reset of your console and modem/router, which is allowing the download to continue, although the speeds are still incredibly low and at the time of writing nobody has been able to fully download the update yet.
[UPDATE 9/8 7:08 PM PST] We originally reported that only Xbox One users were experiencing issues with the download as that console was predominately what we were seeing complaints for. It now appears that every console — PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 — are experiencing similar difficulties. This suggests that it is not anything to do with Xbox Live or PSN itself, but rather the Destiny servers which are overloaded.
