A trailer for Destiny 2's Curse of Osiris expansion has been unveiled online. When it released in September, many fans of the first game were impressed with how much Bungie had managed to improve upon the core gameplay of the original. The game's increased emphasis on story and character had some players stating that Destiny 2 was already better than Destiny 1, based purely on the launch content that Destiny 2 provided.
However, Destiny 2 was never going to maintain this reputation purely on its vanilla content, and developer Bungie has a timeline of expansion releases similar to the first Destiny. The first of these expansions is called Curse of Osiris, and this additional content has just received its first trailer (watch it above).
Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris sends the player to Mercury to find Osiris, who is apparently the most powerful Warlock to ever live. Taking place after the main Destiny 2 campaign has ended, Osiris should have some answers about how to defeat the Vex, the machine army that has come through a gateway at Mercury. Taking place as another narrative-driven experience, Curse of Osiris includes a new destination in the form of Mercury and its Infinite Forest, a new social space dubbed the Lighthouse, as well as new missions, strikes, raid content, and more.
Bungie also confirmed exactly when players can expect Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris to drop. The Curse of Osiris expansion will be released on December 5, 2017, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. At the moment, further details regarding new weapons or armor are unknown, but fans should expect to find out more in the run-up to the expansion's release in December.
Although Destiny 2 is certainly a lot of fun, there's a definite sense that Bungie needs to bring some additional content to the table to match with the timeframes of the first Destiny. After all, plenty of players may have exhausted the list of Destiny 2 Easter eggs to uncover, and perhaps even grown a little weary of trying to grab those Destiny 2 Prestige Leviathan Raid rewards. If so, those players will certainly be grateful for Curse of Osiris, should the expansion prove to be substantial content-wise.
That said, others may be a little hesitant to see any major changes to Destiny 2. Recently it was discovered that publisher Activision had patented a microtransaction-focused matchmaking system, which was seen by plenty of video game fans as more than a little manipulative. Although Activision has stated that it has yet to implement this system, there are concerns that it will only be a matter of time.
Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris expansion will be available December 5, 2017.
