As it turns out, today’s update may be going live, but the changes won’t be activated until a later date:

Further prepping it for the House of Wolves expansion on May 19, fixing bugs, and more, Destiny update 1.2.0 has begun rolling out on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
As Bungie says on their website, “Pardon our dust! We are pushing a patch live today. Players will be returned to the title screen from their activities and then be required to log in to Destiny again after installing the patch.”
- The spawn locking issue currently affecting Iron Banner will be fixed.
- Legendary items will be added to post-game reward tables for all Crucible activities.
- Your first match in the daily featured Crucible activity will earn you a new reward package each day.
- Reputation and Mark gains will double for each completed Crucible match.
- Etheric Light has a chance of being included in Iron Banner reward packages for Rank 3 and Rank 5.
- Three maps from The Dark Below DLC will be available to all Crucible players in select playlists (Pantheon, Skyshock and The Cauldron).
We’ll update this post with official details once Bungie posts them.
If you have the update now, feel free to let everyone know in the comments how big of a download it was.
