Destiny 2 DLC Curse of Osiris guide and walkthrough: Everything added in the Mercury-set expansion

At this point the main story of the expansion is complete, but there is more to do and unlock.

What else do you need to know about Destiny 2’s Curse of Osiris DLC?

In more detail, here’s what we know:

A new world mission starring Osiris.

Described as an “all-new cinematic story with new and returning characters” by Activision, the expansion sees the female Ghost Sagira (voiced by Firefly and Homeland’s Morena Baccarin) separated from Osiris.

Ikora, who was mentored by Osiris, will have a big focus on the expansion, as will the Vex, who have lived up to something throughout time and space. Maybe we’ll find out what.

The expansion features a first look at Osiris.

New patrol space and ‘dungeon’ area in the Infinite Forest on Mercury

Described as “a simulated reality in the middle of time, controlled by the Vex,” this new area is where players will explore as part of the story and various post-story adventures, as well as Mercury as a patrol space and small social network. . space.

The Infinite Forest in particular is a changing location that will be explored in greater detail throughout Adventures, with defined start and end points and a random variety of “intelligently designed” sections in between, each with an enemy race and scenario. different theme.

You can see more about this in Bungie’s second livestream about the DLC:

New social space, El Faro

Mercury was a destination in the first Destiny, as part of the Trials of Osiris social space, the Lighthouse, which is a small area in the Mercury Patrol space. It is here that you can collect the secret Lighthouse chest and unlock Lost Prophecy Verses.

New missions, new attacks and free roaming activities.

There are three adventures and two strikes, first introduced as story missions in the DLC and later added to the playlist, rounding out the few available in the main game, including the return of a Heroic Strikes playlist.

Meanwhile, the Mercury Patrol space will have a new Lost Sector, region chests, and a new Mercury public event ‘Vex Crossroads’.

New weapon missions called ‘Lost Prophecies’

Once the story is over, you will have access to 11 quests called ‘Lost Prophecies’. These are mini-quests that require you to collect drops while playing certain activities, such as public events and heroic adventures. Once you’ve fulfilled them, you’ll return to an altar in the Lighthouse social space and turn them in to receive Vex-themed weapons.

You can see more about this at the beginning of this Arekkz video:

New raid content

Bungie will be adding additional locations to the Leviathan Raid as part of a new feature known as ‘Raid Lair’.

The ‘Eaer of Worlds’ activity will have new areas, puzzles, a new boss fight, and a higher level requirement of 300. It won’t be as long as the existing Raid, but will have its own rewards, including weapons and armor. and cosmetics.

Although it will take place in new parts of Leviathan, it will be a separate option in the Director and you will not need to have finished the original Raid to try it.

Bungie added that there will be a second Raid Lair for the game’s second expansion, also set in Leviathan, sometime next year.

One tantalizing addition is new Raid content, but what exactly that means is unknown. It could be anything from a new Raid, which is possible, if the original’s The Dark Below expansion is anything to go by, or a remix or addition to the current Leviathan Raid.

New Wormhaven Crucible map

Sony confirmed that with the expansion would come a PlayStation-exclusive Crucible map set in the New Pacific Archology area of ​​Titan. As with other platform-exclusive content, it is expected to eventually reach other platforms, although not anytime soon.

New level cap

The expansion will increase Destiny 2’s level cap from character level 20 to 25, and power level from 305 to 330 (or 335 with mods). It’s unknown what exact activities will get you there, but they’ll likely be the same ‘power team’ Engram activities we’ve seen so far.

The Season of the Depths is here along with the Into the Depths quest. You can also know how to go fishing! Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Lost Sector and King’s Fall challenge rotation schedule!

New weapons, emotes and other additions.

In addition to new areas and maps, there are also some other smaller additions. For one thing, there’s a new ‘Selfie’ gesture, and it’s pretty special:

There are new weapons, one of each apparently wielded by Osiris himself – Gamer Network’s Arekkz thinks it could be an exotic automatic rifle. Also shown is the return of the Exotic Jade Rabbit and possibly even Telesto:

The video above also highlights new armor pieces, likely obtained from new endgame activities introduced in the expansion.

That’s all we know so far. Bungie will likely release more information about the expansion in the weeks leading up to launch, and we’ll update this page when that happens.
