To help address the issue of missing Sterling Treasures for players who logged in to Destiny on April 12 prior to the April Update deployment, Bungie will be releasing a new hotfix today at 10am PT/1pm ET.
To install the new Destiny hotfix (188.8.131.52.1), you’ll be required to log in again after it’s deployed. “We are pushing a patch live today,” they say. “Players will be required to log in to Destiny again after returning to the title screen to install the patch. You should not be removed from any activities you are currently in.”
As for the missing Sterling Treasures, Bungie explained on the forums that you’ll only have until the very early morning of April 19 to claim them:
It has been determined that there was an issue where players that logged in between 2AM and 10AM PST on 4/12 (April Update) did not receive their initial Sterling Treasure. This affected both players who logged into Destiny on their consoles and players who logged into their accounts on Bungie.net.
For those players affected, we are working on a fix targeted for Monday, April 18th (Hotfix 184.108.40.206.1 at approximately 10AM PST) that will allow affected players to have a limited-time window to retrieve their Sterling Treasure from the Postmaster. Affected players will ONLY have until the 04/19 Weekly Reset (2AM PST) to attain them. At 2AM PST, players will resume into a new weekly cycle, where players can log in and play the respective activities for additional free Sterling Treasures.
Also, back on April 15, Bungie said, “The Security Response Team just issued a report that the Banhammer was swung today. Many times. Play nice out there. They see all…”
If there are any other changes included with today’s hotfix, we’ll let you know.
