The newest patch for the Destiny video game is finally here, and we have all the details.

Now that the patch 2.0.1 has arrived, Destiny will be undergoing some changes, these include the new microtransactions and some changes in the weapons, most specifically in shotguns.

Also take note of a current bug where PS4 users are experiencing corrupt data when updating, instead of the a 500MB patch update, they will be seeing an 18GB update. Bungie suggests that you should cancel the download and clear the PS4 cache and restart the download.
