Destiny 2’s Curse of Osiris DLC arrives

Enough lollygagging, you Guardians; it’s time to suit up and get your butt to Mars… er, Mercury. Wait, Mercury? We sure that’s right? Oh. Well then, they’re going to get toasty warm before all is said and done.

Destiny 2 pushed its Curse of Osiris DLC live today, bringing the first “expansion” to the multiplayer shooter since its launch a couple of months ago. The $20 pack (which can also be accessed through a season pass) includes adventures on Mercury and a new social hang called the Lighthouse. Players will face off with the cyborg Vex, a race that is attempting to “reshape reality” as violently as possible. The only hope, other than a million gamers with itchy trigger fingers, is Brother Vance and his Followers of Osiris.

Players will explore the Infinite Forest at the heart of Mercury, battle it out in the new Tree of Probabilities strike, and battle between each other on one of Titan’s ocean rigs. See what the DLC has to offer in the launch trailer below!

Wait, so they added new levels? Why did they add new levels for character progression if it does absolutely nothing at all to increase the power of your character? It’s like this whole game is developed as an illusion to trick you into thinking you’re awesome.

It’s out and I’m in it. Having a great time with the new story.

Didn’t buy Season Pass and won’t be buying any DLC. Enjoyed Destiny 2 for a couple of weeks, and very grateful it was a gateway to Warframe. I know I’ve become repetitive in my refrain, but I’m now playing the much better and deeper game presently (in my opinion) and put in more than twice as many hours in almost the same amount of time…and barely scratched the surface.

And yet, I dislike Warframe‘s design aesthetic, its lore, and its setting.

My point is only that certain games’ appeal derives from factors beyond obvious gameplay mechanics, and resonate with gamers (or don’t) because of the game-world and its setting.

By all means, like what you like. Have much fun, but the implication that one game is superior to the other depends largely on what one desires from their chosen game.

Cheers,

When I play Destiny 2 I see some good things and the potential for this to be a really good game is out there, but the game as it is now is boring and repetitive once you get past the main storyline, and thats not even getting into the cash shop/xp issues. My guild was all gung ho about getting into Destiny when it first came out and most of them have already stopped playing already or only log in every once in a while.

Well i played it and it is legitimate trash. if you didnt get the version including the season pass do NOT buy this.

-The story is terrible and takes 2 hours to complete at a leisurely pace
-Two of those missions are solo versions of the new strike, another is just solo’ing the pyramideon strike from the base game
-The selling point of the procedural area? its mission/adventure ONLY
-The actual patrol is a football field sized donut with no mounts allowed and one public event on repeat. Thats it.
-Most of the exotics are just Destiny 1 items with no lore or story connection
-Story itself has no connection to the events of Destiny 2 and feel less canon than Rise of Iron
-the heroic strikes are dlc owners only, if you dont buy it you are locked out even of the ones in he base game
-they have no modifiers like d1 but are just health and damage increases
-one lost sector thats a straight 20 second walk to a round room with a regular vex minotaur in it
-An obscene amount of new gear/weapon models are cash shop lock box only, reddit dataminers are already suggesting that over 60% of content you download for this ‘expansion’ is purely for the eververse
-Your character still doesn’t talk anymore, but now mimes.
-More dumb fucking meme emotes from the cash shop with an ingame pop up to tell you.
-If you dont buy it the base prestige difficulty raid is now locked out until you buy it

This is an unmitigated travesty and the first time in a long time i have used the term ‘rip off’ with absolute sincerity.

Do yourself a favour and spend that $35 on any of the stellar games that came out this year. This is so bad i’m done with the game. Not out of some babymode ragequit because some loot didnt drop. But because this is just one too many absolute shitshows from a company that appears to now design its “10 year franchise” on microtransactions alone.

and if i was down with that shit i’d be playing battlefront 2 and singing EA’s praises, since i’m not this shit got uninstalled. What a disaster and what a goddamn shame.

I differ only with one point on this:

I think the story is connected. The actions of the Red Legion in mining Mercury to fuel The Almighty exposed the Vex activity there, which leads to the discovery of Sagira. It’s not a direct continuation of the story, but it’s definitely connected in that the resolution of the one story exposed the other.

The rest of your points I agree with. I’m having fun, but I wouldn’t have bought this at full standalone expansion price, I’d have waited for a sale.

Also, jesus that new gun is a PvP disaster.

Really sounds like this expansion should have just been a major content patch. Akin to ZG or Dire maul from WOW’s early days.

Ive got the game, and the season pass… and yet… I probably wont even bother to log in to try it for another couple weeks. The game is just that devalued by all the areas bungie fell short on, which trumps any of the games good aspects for me right now. Im completely unenthusiastic about this new content, or playing all together because of all the things Bungie felt they didnt need to bother with, or felt didnt matter.

Yeah Pete Parsons needs a good kick to the nads. He is a piss poor CEO.

Definitely a good choice tonight; connection loss issues on all platforms.

I didn’t lose connection.

Oh, well, if you didn’t experience a problem that is affecting many but not all users, it must not have happened. I’ll let all the folks reporting these problems to Bungie on social media know.

Reader

You ever think it might be something on their end like incompatible software such as third party programs, or firewalls?

Reader
syberghost

XBox and PS4 people reporting same problems as PC. Problems that didn’t start until 1) peak time 2) after the update. But sure, maybe everybody installed new incompatible third party software at the same time.

Underwhelming so far. Less an expansion than something that was intentionally cut from the main game to make extra bank from. There are a couple fun missions, but most of them just feel very disjointed. If you’re going to introduce a new planet, and that planet’s not even large enough to support your side story, then maybe that planet’s not big enough?

Yup reminds me a lot of a big ass jumping puzzle.

Just picked this up for PC during Black Friday sales, and finding it very addictive; glad there’s some new content just after I’ve finished the main story. Pretty surprised by all the negativity I’ve seen online about this game, maybe that’s just part of the Destiny community? It’s not an earth-shattering game, but as far as a simple looter shooter with online options seems fun

Reader

The negativity is largely because after 3 years iterating on the first game they threw it all out and in its place had less systems and a massive increase in emphasis on cash shop lootboxes. Its a step down in every regard sadly.

I suppose I should play it… I did get the season pass with the game after all, I played it a bit for two weeks after launch and have not touched it since… lol

Balance notes were underwhelming but already bought the season pass. Hoping that the RNG dungeon thingy will at least provide some longterm motivation for me to consistently log in, because even though I’ve still got more light levels to grind it’s hard to log in for much beyond a few weekly milestones and stuff like the planetary daily ones.

Unfortunately its not an rng dungeon but two rng missions and 3 rng adventures. Thats all its used for.
