Were you enjoying Destiny 2? Well, content that you could previously play via the main game has been rendered inaccessible with the release of the Curse of Osiris this week. The title’s first expansion pack essentially retunes the Power Level required to tackle some of the title’s brutal endgame content, which means if you haven’t stumped up for the pricey expansion, you’re bang out of luck.
In addition to rendering the Platinum Trophy unobtainable, this also means that key gear like the Legend of Acrius exotic shotgun can no longer be collected either. The key differentiator here is that the content hasn’t always been locked behind a paywall; prior to the release of Curse of Osiris you need only own the base game to obtain it. That’s no longer the case.
It’s just another chink in Bungie’s armour, after it moved to calm growing fan unrest only last week. In even more damning news, our reviewer Robert Ramsey has been playing through the Curse of Osiris and, while we’ll leave you to read his review later today, it’s safe to say that the content isn’t really up to scratch – especially considering its significant price of entry.
