Let's just hope that the story found in Expansion I: Curse of Osiris and whatever Expansion II turns out to be, can live up to expectations. We had expected the stream to focus mainly on story, and there are some great details to chew over, but we also heard about new Activities.
For clarification, when the expansion was initially revealed, the description said "New Raid Content" for one of the bullet points, leading many to believe that what we would be getting would not be a full Raid.
"We're learning from and listening to all the feedback we got on Destiny 1, and we're applying it", Ward noted. Presumably, we'll hear more about him today. The Lighthouse will be the new social space on Mercury. If you weren't around to see it, don't fret! Changes in time will also expose different threats for us, along with present day Vex we will also battle Precursors and Descendants, which we dealt with in The Vault of Glass.More news: United States air traffic controller charged with possessing pipe bomb
Curse of Osiris releases on December 5, and it brings the power level cap up to 335. You can check out the "tune in" trailer below flaunting the expansion's new features below. 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.
The original Leviathan raid is having its level cap raised, so you can play the original Leviathan (in Normal Mode) to level up to 335. But it does mean that folks who enjoy raiding hopefully won't have to wait as long as they did in the first game to try out fresh challenges.
The DLC will see the return of the Heroic Strike playlist, and the introduction of the Raid Lair. It's unclear if players will be able to purchase Curse of Osiris individually, but the original game's season pass had the same price, with each of the two expansions priced at $20 as stand-alone purchases.
