Bungie will be making some major tweaks to Nightfall and Vanguard Strikes ahead of Destiny 2's Forsaken expansion this September.

It's all part of the pre-expansion patch rolling out on August 28, which introduces Power 300, 400, and 500 options for Vanguard Strikes. Modifiers will be available for both Forsaken and Legacy players, although for the latter the recommended Power level is 200.

As for the Nightfall, the Prestige difficulty is being given the boot although the strike is still going to pack a punch in terms of overall challenge. Guardians can also select from three different Nightfalls each week, although you'll need to have the appropriate expansion where required.

Legacy players will have the chance to pick modifiers from the Challenge Card, although scoring won't be active in the 270 Power Nightfall.

Elsewhere, there has been various poking and prodding when it comes to Power requirements. For example, if an under-levelled player enters an activity and makes it through in one piece, their reward will be considerably greater than a Guardian who is just above the recommended level.

Bungie also revealed that it's giving Meditations a break with Forsaken. These are a weekly activity that sees Ikora sending you out to repeat story missions for extra rewards, but they'll be replaced in Forsaken by the Heroic Story playlist.

In addition, Heroic Adventures will also be added as part of the update, which pretty much speak for themselves.

Bungie yesterday offered us a glimpse at Destiny 2's new endgame experience, The Dreaming City. Don't forget to pre-order Forsaken to receive Cayde-6's bag of Exotic goodies.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is out for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on September 4.
