During the PGW Convention, Bungie hosted a conference in which the details of Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris were showcased. The expansion adds a new chapter to the world of Destiny 2, plunging players in the middle of a big cinematic story with new characters and Mercury as a new destination rather than just a multiplayer map. Also adding a new social space, the Lighthouse.
So the story picks up right were main story ends on the Destiny 2 campaign. Ikora tasks the players on a mission to find the most powerful and notorious warlock in history, and her mentor Osiris.
Osiris is a new character from Destiny‘s lore, and he is currently in exile due to his controversial Ideology. Suddenly he goes missing. He is voiced by Oded Fehr which many would know for his appearance in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.
Sagira is a sassy and strong ghost that accompanies Osiris, and will guide the players in their mission. She is voiced by Morena Baccarin who many would know for her appearance in Deadpool. This is actually the first time the player speaks to another ghost.
Brother Vance is back from Destiny, and will also help players track down Osiris. He will show them the way in the Infinite Forest.
The Lighthouse will have a lot of mysteries to find, However that giant soccer/football will be greatly missed. Yet, there might be “other things” to do.
At the beginning of the story, an ancient gate sparks to life on Mercury, Something important has been set into motion to make the Vexx from across all the timelines start streaming out one location. They’re not exploring nor investigating, and they’re moving with a purpose and it’s the players’ objective to discover what it is and how to stop it.
This is the first time in which players can really delve into the backstory of the Vexx.
Osiris disappeared into another gate on Mercury, leading to the aforementioned Infinite Forest. It’s a simulated reality in the middle of time controlled by the Vexx.
