We hope that you weren't planning on jumping straight into Destiny when you get home from work or school today, because Bungie's taken the servers down for a hefty dose of scheduled maintenance. At the point of publishing this article, the downtime is already under way, beginning at 16:00PM BST - that's 08:00AM PDT and 11:00AM EDT for you Americans.

The maintenance will last a rather lengthy six hours, ending at 22:00PM here in the UK - that's almost a whole day of Destiny down the drain for us islanders, we're sad to say.

Will you be able to cope? Are you already having withdrawals? Rock backwards and forwards while visualising all of that green loot in the comments section below.
