Developer, Bungie, has unveiled that the latest patch in their acclaimed Sci-fi shooter, Destiny due to drop on consoles tomorrow September 8th.

Destiny saw gamers traverse the death enveloped plains of the Milky Way galaxy, in which players were tasked with forging a plethora of illicit new weapons and allies, in order to quell the potent fallen threat, and reclaim the Earth from its meager oppressors.

The Destiny 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.

Here’s a tactical preview for how things about to change:
