Destiny 2’s been out a whopping two days, and for PC players it won’t release for another two months – yet it seems plans for the first expansion are already well under way. According to a new page on Microsoft’s Xbox store, the DLC will be titled: Curse of Osiris.
The product’s description is as follows:
“Destiny 2 Expansion I: Curse of Osiris continues your Guardian’s journey with all-new story missions and adventures set in a new destination, Mercury. Journey through time and space to learn the secrets of Osiris, avert a dark future, and rebuild the ties between the legendary Warlock and his greatest student – Ikora Rey.”
Additional features include:
- Explore Mercury and its mysterious “Infinite Forest”
- New story missions and adventures
- New themed weapons, armor, and gear to earn
- New cooperative activities
- New competitive multiplayer arenas
- And more…
While particularly optimistic players have suggested the possibility of this last point indicating a new raid, the likelihood of this is quite low, given the content of the rest of the expansion. That Destiny 2 will finally shed some light on the enigmatic Osiris – a highly-anticipated and well-known character in the Destiny universe’s lore – is enough for many to justify early purchases.
As of yet, there’s been no mention of a release date for Curse of Osiris, and no official confirmation has been received from Bungie on the legitimacy of the expansion so far – though an earlier report on Kotaku did outline much of what we are just now seeing in late August.
