Bungie has announced that Destiny‘s servers will be offline for maintenance on Thursday, September 8, for eight hours between 8AM PDT to 4.00PM PDT. During this time, Bungie.net and Destiny companion app functionality will be limited as well. In addition to this, Clan features will be taken offline to prepare for the Clan Roster functionality. “Clan tags will not appear on player nameplates until functionality is restored. Bungie.net Clan enrollment and moderation functionality will not be impacted,” explained the developer. 

Bungie says it’ll announce the return of Clan functionality at a later date. However, once the downtime is over, players can proceed to download update 2.4.0 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In preparation for the update, Bungie asks players to take note of the following:

  • Please ensure that you have the proper amount of space available to accept Update 2.4.0.
  • Interrupting downloads may force all previous content to be re-downloaded on some consoles.
  • Some consoles will attempt to verify all previously downloaded content before downloading Update 2.4.0. If any issues are found, or the verification process is interrupted, all previous content will be deleted and downloaded once more.

While detailed patch notes aren’t available yet, 2.4.0 will change the ways in which players acquire Sterling Treasures. “Players may only acquire one Sterling Treasure per week, through the Level 41 Prison of Elders playlist,” explained Bungie.
