Destiny II: Warmind Players Claim Reuse of Assets From The Main Campaign

Destiny 2

$20 Expansion II: Warmind is reusing campaign Destiny II assets in two of three new strikes, with the third only available for PlayStation 4 as it is an exclusive content to the latest Sony platform.

“As if it was already bad enough when one of the four campaign levels is just set in an old area of Earth, then the last two are also doubling as Strikes,” user Railgun wrote over the ResetEra forum.

Destiny 2 Warmind Assets Reused From The Main Campaign

“They did this in Curse of Osiris as well but at least then they changed them up a bit, gave them different dialogue and had the excuse that it was a second run of the simulation. Even then they didn’t literally use the final boss of the campaign as a Strike.”

So, on top of the best strike being reserved to just the PlayStation 4 platform, users are claiming that the other two strikes included in the expansion are based on older areas of the game.

You can read the full post from RailGun below.

“The only new and original Strike is exclusive to PlayStation. These are advertised as new and separate content, same as they are in the original game. However, in the new DLC Warmind, two of them are literally just the last two campaign levels, with the third and only original content one being exclusive to PlayStation.As if it was already bad enough when one of the four campaign levels is just set in an old area of Earth, then the last two are also doubling as Strikes.

They did this in Curse of Osiris as well but at least then they changed them up a bit, gave them different dialogue and had the excuse that it was a second run of the simulation. Even then they didn’t literally use the final boss of the campaign as a Strike.I can’t stress enough that this is advertised as separate content to the campaign, just as it is in the base Destiny 2 game. In addition, this is in a $20USD expansion.”

Warmind is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and has just launched, so it’s a bit early to determine whether it’s being appreciated or not in terms of players’ support. Anyway, this doesn’t look like a good start.
