If you’re one of the many Destiny players hoping to see more of the planet Mercury, you may be in luck. Destiny was reportedly supposed to have more content on the planet Mercury, but in the end it got only limited content through the Trials of Osiris event. Anyone who achieves a perfect score of nine wins to zero losses in the Trials of Osiris will also be sent to a secret area on Mercury called The Lighthouse with some exclusive loot, but that’s as far as our exploration of the closest planet to the sun can go.
Tom Phillips over at Eurogamer has put together a rather convincing argument that the game’s upcoming sequel may heavily feature Mercury and quests given by the character Osiris. The argument is based on clues recently deposited in the main Destiny database and an old Reddit post (now deleted) containing other information that has since turned out to be true. A Mercury-based event called The Dawning is expected to hit the game in the next few weeks to reveal, and Destiny‘s sequel will reportedly be released around September this year.
In related news, Destiny has seen a spate of odd bugs recently. This week’s Nightfall strike had a bug that prevented some important doors from opening, trapping the player and preventing them from finishing. Bungie support has since declared that the issue has been resolved, but it’s not the only bug facing players today. Players on Reddit have been reporting bugs all manner of bizarre bugs in the Crucible, with dead bodies piling up all over the map and players still running and gunning after being killed.
