With the House of Wolves expansion going live for Destiny tomorrow at 10am PT/1pm ET on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, Bungie is doing the final pre-load today at 8am PT/11am ET, which may result in some downtime and connection interruptions.
Because of this, Bungie said over the last few hours:
“Anticipate brief connection interruptions as early as 8AM Pacific on Monday (5/18) morning.”
“Be careful about starting activities you can’t finish before 8AM Pacific. Watch this space for details.”
“In one hour, we’re deploying final updates to prepare for tomorrow’s release of House of Wolves. This will cause a connection interruption.”
Right before House of Wolves is released tomorrow, the latest Destiny hot fix will go live, updating the game to version 184.108.40.206. In the preview for this hot fix, Bungie confirmed we’ll be getting a Connection Recovery feature for Trials of Orisis, along with a host of other improvements.
Expect full details on 220.127.116.11 tomorrow when it’s officially released.
Will you be playing House of Wolves as soon as it launches tomorrow?
