Destiny 2 Update Re-Opens Content Locked Off by Curse of Osiris Expansion

We previously reported on Destiny 2‘s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, locking off content that players with the base game previously had access to. This naturally didn’t sit well with quite a few players and the like, however now Bungie has reversed the decision in a new update for the game.

The new update changes up the Iron Banner and Faction Rally events, making them available to everyone – even those with just the base game.

Here are the patch notes:

Iron Banner

  • Players who do not own Curse of Osiris may once again access Iron Banner when available

Faction Rallies

  • Players who do not own Curse of Osiris may once again pledge to Factions during Faction Rally events

Destiny 2 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    yeah… woo.. horahh.. what great guys *sigh*. I still question everybody why keep playing and giving them money, when Bungie, Activision and Blizzard are only butt fucking their fans with giant dildo without lube.

    yeah..that’s nice Activision.

    We’ll come back when you fuck up something else, half ass apologize that it wasn’t intended, “look into it” and “we’ll feedback/transparent better”, “fix it” but actually make it worse, repeat the cycle.

    How nice of them. The game is still garbage though.

    gotta say, this game has been reported to lie to players about their progression, lock content that was part of the base game once a DLC is out, and being infected to the brim with Microtrasaction schemes. In that kinda of scenario, it’s baffling to me that ANYBODY is still playing it.

    Jesus, how many times have the devs been caught screwing their customers over? This franchise has reeked of underhanded tactics to push DLC and microtransactions from day 1. Even if you somehow find this repugnant turd fun, at what point do you say enough is enough?

    Who cares? After everything else they’ve done you’d have to have battered wife syndrome to want to keep playing (if you did at all).

    This is the same developer who apparently is focusing more on microtransactions than DLC because making content that is substantial is “too hard”. It’s staggering to believe that Bungie went from Halo to this.
