Bungie had been tight-lipped about the next raid in Destiny 2, but they recently livestreamed a first look at the upcoming Curse of Osiris and revealed some intriguing news.
The Cabal Leviathan, location of Destiny’s first raid, will become a raid lair called Leviathan, Eater of Worlds, the site for multiple raids in the game’s future. It appears that new raids — at least for the time being — will take the form of explorations of new sections of the gargantuan ship. Curse of Osiris will add a number of raid encounters on the ship, with a new boss to fight at the end.
The Power level for the new raid will be set at 300, the current max (rising to 330 with Curse of Osiris). The recommended level for the game’s current raid will also be raised to match at 300, with the level of rewards increased to fit. Both raids will then have their Prestige versions raised to provide a new level for the cap increase in Curse of Osiris.
“It’s an entirely new set of encounters, new puzzles, new loot, completely new places to explore,” Bungie’s Brendan Thorne said during the stream.
Bungie have confirmed that the second expansion, due out early 2018, will add a third and final set of encounters on Leviathan. It looks like Bungie will be introducing the concept of raid lairs to last a year’s cycle in Destiny 2’s life.
We’ll be getting two more weekly livestreams before Curse of Osiris launches December 5, so expect to hear more news on the expansions soon.Load Comments
