Destiny 2.0.0 update with early 1.23 PS4 patch notes

We are hours away from a huge patch landing in Destiny 2. Update 2.0.0 is on the way and Bungie has already been kind enough to give an early preview of the Destiny 2.0.0 patch notes or the Destiny 2 1.23 notes on PS4 and Xbox One specifically.

This has to be one of the biggest updates that we have seen for the game since launch and for those that haven’t had a heads-up on the update contents and the schedule for when the update arrives exactly, Bungie has everyone covered.

We can tell you that for the August 28 Destiny 2 patch, there will be four hours of maintenance. This will start at 9.30am Pacific Time, which means 12.30pm Eastern Time and 5.30PM uk time.

The Destiny 2.0.0 update or 1.23 on console should be out at 10am Pacific Time ( 1PM EST, 6PM UK) while maintenance is on and the game will only be available after 2PM Pacific Time, or 5PM EST, 10pm UK time.

That is a very long time to wait of course, but here are the changes to expect once the update is live.

If Bungie adds more notes, we will update this article, but this is the list so far according to the developer:
