Rumor: Destiny 2’s first DLC will take players to Mercury

Destiny 2 isn’t out yet, but you can best be assured that the developers are planning far beyond that for the game’s major updates. Kotaku claims that it has confirmed word of the multiplayer game’s first DLC, The Curse of Osiris, which is aiming for a December release.

The Curse of Osiris will take players to the planet Mercury, so let’s hope that they have very insulated suits and low expectations for lush scenery. In addition to a patrol zone on the planet itself, the update will allegedly open up a “social space” on the Lighthouse. The name of the DLC refers to an effort to save Osiris from the alien Vex.

The PC open beta for Destiny 2 has been the go-to event of the week, with computer players seeing what the deal is all about for this once console-exclusive franchise. The beta is wrapping up today as Bungie prepares for a September 6th launch on consoles followed by the PC version on October 24th.

What Bungie’s doing here is making sure that any gamers who are pre-ordering D2 consider going for the $89.99 base game + season pass package instead of just the $59.99 base game. ;)

Mercury sounds boring. I was hoping to get to Uranus….

DLC before release. This game is so bad.

I enjoyed the storyline, and the game play is just meh, nothing special. The beta was so limited it didn’t give me any indication of what the actual game will be like. I’ve been bitten so often by pre-orders that I’m not about to pre-order anything based on this limited “beta”.

Getting real big flashbacks of the “beta” and launch of The Division here. I still don’t know how this game differs from warframe other than just the storyline, and I don’t care for warframe. Not a fan of quasi-lobby based games, where you might have a small “social” area where people can get together. But 99% of the game is instanced, small group play.

If that’s what this is, i’m just going to give it a hard pass.

I’m kinda considering jumping on the Destiny bandwagon here, but the beta doesn’t really give me a lot to go on other than the general look and feel of the game (which are quite good IMO, albeit a little bit visually garish for my tastes). Anyone who played Destiny 1 want to give me a decent rundown on what it was like and what I could be looking forward to in Destiny 2? Aside from the obvious bit of it being a polished multiplayer FPS.

Read Jack’s reply to my comment here:

Destiny 2 updates companion app, has potential to play at 60 FPS (but won’t)

The guy gives a really good rundown of the differences. Better than anything I’ve read.

Must maintain iron focus!!
Having real trouble not preordering. Have a library full of stuff I don’t have time to play, but man Bungie’s marketing is doing it’s job on me

Reader

I think they have really poor marketing. Everytime I think about looking more into the game an article like this comes out and I look elsewhere.

Reader

How is this poor marketing? Explain please.

Reader
Armsbend

It shows me what the game’s priorities are: selling the next package.

Reader
Don Nascimento

So one website (the ONLY website) showing this upcoming DLC shows Activision’s priorities? Meanwhile you skip mentioning the countless websites and marketing showing off the current game about to be released…..

Reader
Armsbend

You are making my case. Is it my job to go out and find the good stories and Destiny? Or is that Bungie’s marketing Dept.’s job?

Reader
Don Nascimento

Don’t change your argument. First you said it was bad marketing because of WHAT they were marketing, aka their priorities. Now, you change your argument because it now you say it is bad marketing because they arent marketing enough? and its only on one website? Which is it? Destiny marketing is all over the place. Destiny marketing for that DLC (the marketing you didn’t like) is on ONE WEBSITE.

Your argument is 100% invalid.

Hyping your DLC before your game has even launched still just rubs me the wrong way.

Reader

I would normally agree, but i’m also tired of perpetual betas too. I’m glad that the game is coming out soon, and that there is content already planned out and worked on actively.

Reader

A source from one website does not equal “hyping”..

There aren’t a lot of sites out there with info on it and those that do seem to refer back to the Kotaku article.

I stand corrected.
