Bungie has confirmed that the first expansion for Destiny 2 will be called Curse of Osiris. This expansion will focus on the Warlock Osiris, which was also the name of Destiny’s intense multiplayer event, Trials of Osiris. This news has been confirmed by Bungie’s marketing director, Eric Osbourne, who tweeted that the Xbox store listing of the DLC wasn’t a leak, and the information described is infact real.

It’s been known for a while that Osiris would feature in the first DLC expansion, mainly because the Osiris’ symbol is featured as the logo on the DLC cover. 

The Curse of Osiris DLC continues the journey of the Guardian, with new story missions and adventures that’ll be set on the planet Mercury. This expansion will see players taking a journey through space and time to find out the secrets of Osiris, whilst rebuilding the ties between the legendary Warlock and his famous student Ikora Rey. There’ll also be a number of cooperative activities and competitive multiplayer arenas, as well as some new weapons, armour and gear to earn.

In the original Destiny, players would only be able to visit Mercury having achieved a flawless 9-0 record in the Trials of Osiris gauntlet challenge. The planet was also featured in a few multiplayer maps (Burning Shrine, Vertigo and Icarus), and this’ll be the first time players can take part in campaign missions set on the closest planet to the Sun.

According to a previous rumour this DLC expansion is due to come out in December.
