Destiny 2 developer Bungie is making some changes to how it updates the game, and for the upcoming Beyond Light expansion, this means you’ll need to re-download the entire game–but this move comes with some good news as well.

Bungie said in a blog post that it recognizes this could be a “painful” problem for people with slow internet or caps on their data. “We’re sorry about that,” Bungie said.
