Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris details coming in 15 Nov livestream

Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris details coming in 15 Nov livestream

With all the talk coming out of the studio lately, carefully using the terms "new raid activity" or "new raid content", it was easy to come to the conclusion that there would not, in fact, be a new raid with the launch of the first expansion, Curse of Osiris.

First things first, we discuss the Infinite Forest. Namely, we learned more about the new planet of Mercury, got a look at the revamped Lighthouse, and saw some of the new gear that players can obtain. 15 on Bungie's Twitch channel. Beyond that initial bummer is a pretty cool idea, though: with both of the Season Pass expansions, Bungie plans to add a new "Raid Lair" to the Leviathan Raid. In addition to looking at the new characters, location, and story that players will encounter, they also took the opportunity to address a question that has been on everyone's mind since Curse of Osiris was announced: What is Raid content? Curse of Osiris' Raid Lair is titled Leviathan, Eater of Worlds. Called Leviathan, Eater of Worlds, it takes place on Calus's ship - like the existing Leviathan Raid - but is set in the mechanical Underbelly areas near where you go chest hunting rather than the palace explored in Leviathan. It isn't a new social space, but it's also a bit more than an office for redeeming planetary tokens.

It isn't as cool as getting an all-new Raid.

Taking place after the events of the main Destiny 2 campaign, your Guardian is dispatched to Mercury to find the greatest Guardian who ever lived, Osiris.

Curse of Osiris will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 5, 2017.

The Raid Lair will offer new armor, weapons, and cosmetics all at a higher level. It will have a Prestige mode, if you're the tough type. If you recall from the initial reveal, Curse of Osiris will take Destiny 2 players to Mercury. Bungie plans to share more details about the new expansion activities we can embark on then.
