Destiny 2: Forsaken promises all sorts of exciting, new changes for Destiny 2 players. Bungie has recently revealed that some of those game updates will now be coming a week early, in the new Forsaken pre-patch. This new patch will be deployed on Aug. 28, giving players a full week to sort out their inventory.

Bungie’s new development roadmap gives players a detailed look at what’s coming in the Destiny 2: Forsaken pre-patch. First and foremost, the weapon slot changes will arrive on the 28th. While there won’t be any new content to play until the following week, players will be able re-experience Destiny 2’s first year with all new loadouts.

Other quality of life changes are hitting Destiny 2 in the same update. The weekly Milestone system, as well as the daily challenges, will be getting overhauled in the pre-patch. The director will also be changing, including the addition of Heroic story missions. Finally, collectors will have a much better time organizing their inventory with bulk shader deletion and 200 extra vault slots.

It’s worth noting that all of the changes in the pre-patch are free for all players, and do not require the purchase of any addition content, including Forsaken.


The new roadmap also includes information on Forsaken, although almost none of it is new. However, the new edition does clearly point out that one of the previously announced four Crucible maps will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4.

Destiny 2: Forsaken will be released one week after the pre-patch, on Sept. 4, for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
