Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris Expansion Detailed
Kotaku’s Jason Schreier’s report last week on Destiny 2‘s first expansion being called Curse of Osiris was correct. The first-person shooter’s Expansion I now has a game page over on the Microsoft Store. This comes complete with a description detailing what to expect from it.
Here’s the full description:

For even more on Destiny 2, you’ll want to read our review-in-progress. Here’s a snippet of what Chandler Wood had to say:
A sequel should be many things. It should be familiar. It should be a step forward. It should cultivate the things that worked. It should improve what didn’t. Finding that balance is difficult without either copying too much of what came before or no longer staying true to the original. As old Guardians and new alike take this step into a world without light, Destiny 2 proves that Bungie has taken great care with this balance. There’s a familiar game here, and yet there’s a game all its own. It’s thrilling to start at the bottom again and need to work my way up after three years of feeling powerful.
I could go on and on, but I won’t. Even as much as the story experience has been improved, and many quality of life changes have been implemented, Destiny is all about the endgame. If you aren’t concerned at all about the endgame content, my recommendation is to get Destiny 2 right now. If your hestitation was on story, whether it changed enough from the first, or any other number of small quality of life things, rest assured that Bungie listened to their players and Destiny is better than it’s ever been.
