destiny2 6 - Destiny 2 Next-Gen-Patch & Maintenance Megathread [2020-12-08]

Hey Guardians,

Here's a megathread for the upcoming maintenance that will bring us Update 3.0.1 & the Next-Gen-Patch (PS5 & Xbox Series X|S only). All posts about the maintenance & next-gen-patch will be redirected to this thread.

Downtime will begin when this thread is one hour old. Some features of third party apps (like DIM) could be disabled right now.

Game Downtime is 1 HOUR (until DAILY RESET). Maintenance will take another hour after that to complete.

Most of the time the game is (more or lessContacting Destiny servers…) playable during the ongoing Maintenance after the Downtime is over

Patch & Patchnotes should hit at DAILY RESET as well.

Please note that maintenance isn't fully over until one hour after reset, which means third party apps (like DIM, and your beloved

A highlight of this patch is free Next-Gen-Support for PS5 & Xbox Series X|S, for all those lucky enough to snag one. Here is what you can expect (please read this article for all details):

FeatureXbox Series XPlayStation 5Xbox Series S

Field of View SliderYesYesYes
Faster Load TimesYesYesYes
Cross-Generation PlayYesYesYes

* For supported platforms, 120hz Crucible requires a 120hz compatible display. When enabled, Destiny 2 switches to 120hz, lowers resolution, and lowers some advanced graphics settings upon entering a Crucible match. All other modes remain at 4k/60fps.

Please note that affected consoles are required to basically re-download the entire game as soon as the patch is available:

  • Xbox Series X|S 3.0.1’s patch download size: ~70.0 GB
  • PlayStation 5 3.0.1’s patch download size: ~67.0 GB
  • Xbox One 3.0.1’s patch download size: ~2.35 GB
  • PlayStation 4 3.0.1’s patch download size: ~2.09 GB
  • Steam 3.0.1’s patch download size: ~1.5 GB

There has been no indication that deleting the game has any benefit, so keep it installed and just let it copy the patch over it!
