Curse of Osiris, the first Destiny 2 DLC, added new missions, competitive multiplayer maps, and unfortunately, a paywall in front of some of the futuristic shooter's endgame content.
Destiny 2 players are now complaining about being forced to buy the Curse of Osiris DLC if they want to play the endgame content that they used to access. This is another strike for Bungie, which has already received a fair share of criticism for Destiny 2.
Destiny 2 Curse Of Osiris Locks Endgame Content
Destiny 2 players may play on the Prestige difficulty for Nightfall strikes as long as they were on the power level cap for the game, which was at 300. However, with the launch of Curse of Osiris, the cap has been increased to 330, as well as the requirement for Prestige Nightfall strikes.
The bad news is that players can only reach the power cap of 330 if they buy Curse of Osiris. For those who refuse to purchase the DLC, their power level can only go up to as high as 305, and can no longer participate in Prestige Nightfall strikes.
The same is true for the Prestige Leviathan raid, as it now requires a power level of 330. There are also the Heroic strikes, which are locked for players who do not buy the Curse of Osiris DLC despite only requiring a power level of 270.
Another thing that Bungie cuts off for Destiny 2 players who do not purchase the expansion is The Prestige, a platinum trophy for the game that requires players to beat the Prestige raid or Prestige Nightfall.
Gamers are used to the requirement of buying DLCs to be able to access all the content released for titles. However, Destiny 2 players are complaining that Bungie took away activities that they have been doing since the game was launched, and then placed them behind a paywall.
Destiny 2 Issues
The locked endgame content is just the latest in a long list of Destiny 2 issues that players have complained about. Among the problems that Destiny 2 players have experienced include the XP glitch and the reworked shader system.
Bungie, in an attempt to appease Destiny 2 players, actually canceled the last of three Curse of Osiris streams to focus on addressing the various concerns. Bungie revealed several massive Destiny 2 changes to try to win back players, but with the locked endgame content by Curse of Osiris, it appears that the troubles have still not gone away.
