Most consoles will automatically download and install the associated Destiny release when a physical disc is inserted. However players that purchased digital copies of Destiny game content, including expansions or add-ons, may need to manually begin the download and installation process after redeeming their purchased content through the platform's store.

Occasionally the data or files in a Destiny installation can become corrupted, partially overwritten, or otherwise no longer work as intended. If this happens it can cause the console and Destiny to have issues maintaining connectivity, loading some game files, or other gameplay issues. Reinstalling the game removes the data and files from the console and allows a fresh set to be downloaded and stored.

The current Destiny release is often updated to address gameplay issues or to update in-game features. All Destiny releases require players to download and apply all available updates for their consoles to continue playing. Most consoles will automatically download and install updates as they become available, however players may occasionally need to manually begin the update process.
