Bungie has taken to its weekly update to offer a preview of Destiny update 2.0 that’s due to hit ahead of upcoming expansion on September 8, ushering in Year 2 of Bungie’s sci-fi massive multiplayer game.

The 2.0 update will require 18GB of hard drive space on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and 10GB on Xbox 360. PlayStation 3 users will require 20GB, and only 10GB once the update is installed. While full patch notes will be released next week

According to this week’s Bungie update, a Crucible Preview Event will take place from September 8 to 14 and current Vanguard/Crucible marks will now convert into faction commendations on September 15.

The Moments of Triumph have been extended to September 14 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Bungie reminds players that Moments of Triumph are tied to active characters, so deleting a character now may hinder progress. It’s recommended to wait until you’ve secured your Emblem before deleting Guardians.
