Bungie has released two videos about the upcoming "Curse of Osiris" expansion for Destiny 2
. First up is the opening cinematic featuring Osiris and his female ghost Sagira getting into trouble in the Infinite Forest on Mercury. Sagira is voiced by Morena Baccarin (Firefly, Homeland, Deadpool
) and is a ghost with attitude who thinks the Guardians take themselves a little too seriously.
Bungie has also shared a long play video of the "New Stories to Tell" reveal stream for "Curse of Osiris", which was originally broadcast on Twitch on November 16th. The stream features Community Manager Deej talking to members of the development team, including Narrative Lead Christine Thompson, Art Director Dave Matthews and Raid Designers Brendan Thorne and Stuart Monske. Please note the following video contains spoilers for the main Destiny 2
The "Curse of Osiris" DLC will take players to the Infinite Forest, a Vex reality engine used as a simulation to help them manipulate reality to their own ends. The story takes place in the aftermath of the main Destiny 2
campaign, when Guardian actions have had the unintended consequence of activating a Vex gateway on Mercury.
The Infinite Forest is an ever-shifting landscape with pillars known as trees that allow Guardians to travel between past, present and future. Players will find new Lost Sectors, chests and public events on Mercury and will be able to access a new hub at the Lighthouse with Brother Vance as the local faction leader. Post-story quests will allow players to use Vex technology to craft new weapons
The "Curse of Osiris" expansion will raise the level cap to 25 and the light level cap to 330 (or 335 with all mods). In addition to new story missions and the return of Heroic Strikes, it will introduce a new end-game activity on the Leviathan called the Raid Lair. Raid Lairs are designed for a six person fireteam, but do not take as long to complete as a raid. Leviathan raid completion is not required to play Raid Lairs and successful players will be rewarded with weapons, armour and cosmetic items. Another Raid Lair will be added in Spring with the second Destiny 2
