Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Release Date Revealed in First Trailer

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Release Date Revealed in First Trailer - Osiris

Over a month after the game's release, and it's safe to say Destiny 2 fans are hungry for new content. While Bungie has supported the game with special events, we now know when its first substantial expansion pack will launch. On December 5th, Destiny 2 fans will be able to download the Curse of Osiris expansion.

Available as a standalone download or as part of the expansion pass, Curse of Osiris received its first trailer during Sony's Paris Games Week press conference. The trailer is mostly story-focused, explaining how an ancient gate has opened on Mercury, allowing an army of machines, known in Destiny as Vex, to pass through. These machines aim to reshape the universe in their image, but Osiris stands in their way.

What's interesting about the Curse of Osiris expansion trailer is that it isn't explicitly stated one way or another if Osiris is an ally or enemy. In fact, it's teased that Osiris may actually end up causing the downfall of the Guardians. Regardless, players will be tasked with traveling to Mercury and finding him once the expansion launches on December 5th.

The new Curse of Osiris trailer should be exciting for Destiny 2 enthusiasts, but it didn't reveal much in terms of what fans can expect in the form of new weapons, armor, or other content. However, more information should come to light in the weeks leading up to its release in December.

What's odd is that the trailer didn't highlight any PlayStation-exclusive content coming to Destiny 2 with the Curse of Osiris expansion. Or if it did, it wasn't explicitly highlighted in the trailer or during Sony's press conference. Since Sony prefaced the Curse of Osiris footage by talking about how it has secured console-exclusive content for games on PS4, one would have imagined that kind of content would have been pointed out in the trailer.

Regardless, Destiny 2 fans should know to expect more PS4-exclusive content when it comes to the Curse of Osiris expansion. Destiny 2 has had PS4-exclusive content since the game launched, and if the first game is any indication, PC and Xbox One gamers shouldn't expect to see any of it hit their platform of choice for years to come.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris will launch on December 5th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
