Putting the 'curse' in Curse of Osiris

It's always something! Following complaints that Bungie had locked Destiny 2 players out of previously-accessible content (including some related Achievements/Trophies) with the release of the game's Curse of Osiris expansion, the studio has explained how it intends to address this latest situation.

Bungie will issue a hotfix tomorrow with these changes:

  • The Prestige Leviathan Raid will be brought back down to Power 300, and its rewards will drop down to match the new Power Level. All players will regain access to the Prestige Raid.
    • This will allow access to "The Prestige" Achievement/Trophy for all players.
    • This will also allow all players ability to complete the final step for the Legend of Acrius Exotic Shotgun.
  • Trials of The Nine will only require Curse of Osiris when it features a Curse of Osiris map. For all other weeks, it will be available to all players.
    • This will allow access to "Lest Ye Be Judged" Achievement/Trophy for all players.
    • Trials of The Nine rewards that launched with Destiny 2 will still be accessible to all players.
    • New Seasonal Rewards that launched with Curse of Osiris, such as the new Seasonal Armor Ornaments, will require ownership of Curse of Osiris to acquire.
  • The Prestige Nightfall will remain a pinnacle activity, at the new 330 Power cap.    
    • This means Prestige Nightfall will require ownership of Curse of Osiris.
    • Because of this, we will update "The Prestige" Achievement/Trophy to only reference The Prestige Raid.
    • Moving forward, we are investigating adding a 3rd difficulty to all Prestige activities, so that we can provide both a challenge that stays relevant with each new Expansion, and a Prestige version that is available to all players.
  • Normal Nightfall will only require Curse of Osiris when it features a Curse of Osiris map. For all other weeks it will be available to all players.
  • Time limited events – Iron Banner, Faction Rally, and The Dawning, will be made available to all players.
    • We will be postponing tomorrow's Faction Rally, to ensure all of our players can access the activity and the appropriate rewards.
    • Iron Banner and Faction Rally rewards that launched with Destiny 2 will still be accessible to all players.
    • New Seasonal Rewards that launch with Curse of Osiris, such as the new Seasonal Armor Ornaments, will require ownership of Curse of Osiris to acquire.

This is an improvement, but you can't help feeling like most of this mess was avoidable.

On a separate note, the team is adjusting the game-breakingly powerful Prometheus Lens. "Given the short window we had to make an emergency fix, it will be adjusted to be way too weak," Bungie said. "In January, this new Exotic will receive a proper, play-tested design pass."
