Work began at 11 a.m. ET, at which point nobody could sign in if they hadn’t already been playing Destiny 2. At noon ET, Bungie will boot all remaining players out of the game. The maintenance window is scheduled to end three hours later, at 3 p.m. ET. By that point, Bungie will have released the version 1.0.6 patch for Destiny 2 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
The update includes a fix for collision detection with the Bureaucratic Walk emote, which was allowing players to use the emote to glitch through walls. That issue forced Bungie to cancel Trials of the Nine, Destiny 2’s high-intensity weekend Crucible event, for the past two weeks. Trials will return tomorrow, Nov. 3.
Update 1.0.6 also fixes an issue in which players were loading into empty public spaces too often, and tweaks a number of parameters for scoring in various Crucible gametypes. You can check out Bungie’s blog post from last Thursday for more details, although the studio noted that those aren’t the full patch notes.
In addition to the v1.0.6 patch on all platforms, Bungie will release hotfix 126.96.36.199 on PC. That update will remove the requirement for a CPU feature called Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3), which was preventing people with unsupported processors like the AMD Phenom II from running Destiny 2 — even though those folks didn’t have any issues playing the PC beta over the summer.
