Destiny 2 was just released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but we already have information on its first DLC entitled Curse of Osiris.
A Destiny 2 tribute greeted returning Destiny players, reminding them of their accomplishments in the first game in the series. However, it will apparently not be long before Destiny 2 players receive an expansion for making more enjoyable memories.
Destiny 2: Curse Of Osiris Leaked, Then Confirmed
A Kotaku report from last week was the first to reveal details about the first DLC of Destiny 2, with sources claiming that Osiris will be at the center of the upcoming expansion. Curse of Osiris was said to be coming out in December.
A Microsoft Store listing for Destiny 2 Expansion 1: Curse of Osiris was then spotted, further fueling rumors that this was really the first DLC for the futuristic shooter. the marketing director then laid the rumors to rest through his Twitter account.
Curse of Osiris is not a leak. It's real! :)

What Can 'Destiny 2' Players Expect From Curse Of Osiris
From the DLC's description in its listing, Destiny 2 players will be given story missions and adventures in Mercury, a new playable planet.
"Journey through time and space to learn the secrets of Osiris, avert a dark future, and rebuild the ties between the legendary Warlock and his greatest student — Ikora Rey," the description reads. Osiris has been a big part of Destiny lore but has never been before seen in-game.
This will be the first time that Destiny players will be able to explore Mercury in story missions and open-world activities. The planet could only be previously accessed as the setting for The Lighthouse from the first Destiny and for four Crucible maps cross the two games in the series.
In Curse of Osiris, players will save Osiris from the Vex, who colonized Mercury similar to Nessus. The DLC will also add access to The Lighthouse, which was only open in the first game to players who completed the difficulty gauntlet of the Trials of Osiris.
Hopefully, by the time that Curse of Osiris lands in December, most Destiny 2 players will already have access to their own Sparrow, as it would be tough to explore Mercury on foot. We recently published a quick guide for those who do not know how to get a Sparrow in Destiny 2.
PC players will have less time to acquire the hoverbike before Curse of Osiris is released though, as Destiny 2 for PC will not be released until Oct. 24.
