Destiny 2 Forsaken Not Showing Up on Xbox, Update Won't Download

Destiny 2 Forsaken was just launched, but some players, specifically Xbox One owners, are having trouble starting it. There are two main issues at play – a number of players can’t even find the DLC as a separate package in the Xbox store, only getting the option of buying the full game and season pass, while another group cannot force the console to download the update that would allow them to play it. Thankfully, there are solutions for both, and we’re here to show them to you.

Can’t find Destiny 2 Forsaken in Xbox store

A lot of Xbox players seem to have trouble finding the expansion in the official store. That may be a bug, but it also may just be the fact that the store is terribly designed. No worries, though. You can buy the DLC directly from the game. Fire it up, load any of your characters and open up the director. You’ll see the option to buy the Forsaken right there.

Destiny 2 Forsaken update won’d download on Xbox One

The other big problem is the game refusing to update itself. It seems like this problem only affects people with the first generation Xbox One, at least according to the reports we’re seeing at the moment. However, there’s an easy fix for this one as well. Just press the power button on your console and hold it until it turns off. Leave it like that for about ten seconds, then turn it back on. The download should start automatically.

We’re going to keep an eye on things for the next couple of hours, and if any more problems like these pop up, we’re going to report on them and any potential solutions. Stay tuned. Or play the game, if you can.

      Same here, bought the digital download from Gamestop and the code only credits 40.00 to the account instead of the dlc. Bungie and Microsoft screwed the pooch on this one, just to sell the repackaged delux version of the game… Because profit
