Huge Changes For Destiny 2's DLC Following Fans' Backlash

Huge Changes For Destiny 2's DLC Following Fans' Backlash

Namely, the prestige versions of the game's Raid and weekly Nightfall strikes are no longer available to vanilla Destiny 2 players because Curse of Osiris raised the level cap required to play those.

Developer Bungie, best known for creating the Halo franchise it has since handed off to a rival studio, has admitted to 'some mistakes' with the handling of downloadable content (DLC) for its latest massively multiplayer action role-playing shooter (MMARPS) - in particular the removal of content previously accessible by owners of the base game unless they shell out for an expansion.

Meanwhile, those who may have found an issue with the Prometheus Lens rifle in "Destiny 2" will be in for a treat this week as Bungie revealed in a blog update that a fix for this buggy weapon would be included in the patch update 1.1.1. However, for Destiny 2, Trials of The Nine launched as part of the main game, so it's not right for us to remove access to it. The reason for the delay is that game developer Bungie has decided to make a few tweaks, specifically on what can be accessed with or without purchasing downloadable content (DLC). We would like to talk through the reasoning behind our decisions so far and what we are committed to changing moving forward. Normal Nightfall events, though, will be available to everyone.

The Destiny endgame features a variety of activities and playlists that we want to remain relevant to players as they grow more powerful.

Bungie has released Update 1.1.1.1.to restore players' access to all of the "Curse of Osiris'" content.

This will allow access to "The Prestige" Achievement/Trophy for all players.

"Our team overlooked the fact that both of these mistakes disabled Trophies and Achievements for 'Destiny 2, '" Bungie acknowledged.

For the time being, this new Destiny 2 difficulty mode remains without a name. Should a third tier be added, it will probably require a power level of 330 to accommodate the increased cap brought on by Curse of Osiris. The mod system will also be revamped, with players to be allowed to dismantle any rare mod into Gunsmith materials with the chance to acquire legendary mod components.

The rewards that were offered through Iron Banner and Faction Rally events during the first season will thankfully be still available to everyone.

This means Prestige Nightfall will require ownership of Curse of Osiris.
