Updated: Activision have released a blog post about the DLC, which states that “Curse of Osiris adds a new chapter to the world of Destiny 2, expanding the universe by adding an all-new cinematic story with new and returning characters, a new destination to explore, Mercury and its Infinite Forest, a new social space to visit called the Lighthouse, new missions, new strikes, new raid content, new free roam activities. a world quest to complete, and more.”
We got a first look at Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris DLC from the PlayStation Live event in Paris today. We already knew the name, but thanks to the trailer we now have some interesting details and a release date. December 5th is the day we shall get access to the first of Destiny 2‘s DLC. The DLC would seem to take place on Mercury, with the main antagonists being the Vex. The trailer gave some glimpses of some Vex wearing interesting and ornate armor plating.
The DLC will also see the return of Osiris, not just mentioned as the dark legend that he is, but in the trailer we see him in action. Ikora refers to him as the most notorious Guardian in Vanguard history, a man who nearly destroyed them all. Now Osiris is back, his allegiance unknown, and it is up to the player to figure out this mystery. Is he back to help those he once fought beside, or to exact vengeance on the people who banished him?
There are clues spread throughout the normal game as well. Two adventures of Nessus in particular stand out. In Deep Conversation you help Failsafe to hack some Vex data caches, and she mentions talking to Osiris while she does so. In Hack The Planet, you try to use Failsafe to hack the core of Nessus. In her attempt she gets trapped in there for what feels like ten years to her before you save her. While in there she mentions talking to someone who gave her information on the Vex’s plan for the universe. Could this all be linked to the DLC?
Hopefully the DLC will inject some well deserved tension into the world of Destiny, as everyone is far too happy now that Ghaul has been defeated.
We will update this article with more information as it becomes available, but for now, you may want to clear your schedule and plan a sick day on December 5th!
