It’s been an interesting week for Bungie and Destiny 2. The game’s first DLC, Curse of Osiris, officially made its way to players, and almost immediately, there was backlash in the form of the DLC locking certain content. Mainly, the game modes that were free-to-play for all now had their higher levels restricted to certain levels, which could only be achieved via the DLC. Then, there were new gameplay modes that Destiny 2 introduced that could only be played by those who had the DLC. Needless to say, fans were livid.
In fact, they stormed the internet and demanded that Bungie fix this problem, even going so far as to rally other players to either not buy the DLC at all, or not buy the game at all. Well, Bungie heard those cries, and so, in a blog post, they revealed that everything that is wrong with the DLC is going to be fixed.
“With Curse of Osiris now live, it’s clear that we’ve made some mistakes with how we have handled content access.” they said in their post.
A patch has gone live today that will limit the content lock that Curse Of Osiris has over the game. To be clear, there will be some things that require the DLC to play or to be on, but for a majority of the content, you won’t need to have it. For example, the Prestige Nightfall activity is still going to be locked at level 330, which is only able to be gotten via the DLC.
However, the Prestige Leviathan Raid is going to get its level dropped down so all players can access it again. Same with The Trials Of The Nine. Which will only require the DLC when the specific map from that DLC is being used.
Bungie apologizes for what’s going on with the DLC and the aggravation you’ve felt, they will continue to look over the content and their plans for the future to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
