Destiny 2 is really filling in a lot of people’s free time
But you can’t help but think about the next step, like when’s the first DLC going to drop? What is it going to be? Well, there was a recent leak in the form of a listing on the Xbox market which revealed to us exactly what the first DLC for Destiny 2 will contain.
The first DLC is going to be called the “Curse of Osiris” and the description confirms the previous report of this DLC being set on Mercury. The description reads: 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.
But that’s not all, the feature list below it gives us a clearer idea of what’s to come,
– 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…
Unfortunately, this leak did not come with a release date, so we’ll just have to wait and see with this, which shouldn’t really be a problem considering we’ve got an entirely new game to mess around with, and the PC version doesn’t even come out for another month and a half.
I’ve gotta say though, I’m pretty happy about Mercury becoming a location, since the first game came out I’ve wanted to go there and see what Bungie could do with it. Despite the lack of anything to do in the worlds, they were beautifully done and were an excellent rendition of what each planet in our solar system might look like on the surface. We did actually get to see Mercury in the first game, but it was only a multiplayer map and then you went there again once more when you did a mission for the Rise of Iron DLC. I want to be able to explore the remnants of a mechanized planet, I want to look up into the horizon and see the massive sun, if there’s one thing Bungie’s good at, it’s creating absolutely fantastic visuals. I loved going through the latter moments of the campaign because when you get a glimpse of the sun from that transport tube, it’s actually pretty cool to look at and try to comprehend just how massive the real thing is.
This does bring up one thing that I don’t like about how they did the worlds in Destiny 2, however, it’s the way they revealed them. Destiny 1 had you do all the missions on one planet before having you go to the next planet to continue. In Destiny 2, you get introduced to all the planets by the time you do the fifth campaign mission, it just feels quick to me.
