The studio revealed that the game would take players to Mercury and feature the return of the infamous Guardian Osiris. In order to celebrate the December 5, 2017 launch, the game makers revealed an official launch trailer. Aside from providing bombastic action, the trailer contains a lot of hilarious moments.

Curse of Osiris offers players mystery, adventure, new activities, gear, and locations to explore. Many gamers might remember references to Osiris in the original game. However, this time we can interact with the legendary Guardian directly and find out more about his backstory. Will he really be an ally? That's one of the many questions the expansion presents.

The expansion follows the robotic Vex who have a mysterious master plan. According to the developers, the story is set a few months after main campaign. The reawakening of The Traveler has repercussions as a wave of Light spreads across the solar system. This turns on a Vex gateway where they're assembling a substantial force.

Some of the new characters include Osiris, Sagira — the first female ghost — and Brother Vance. Brother Vance is a religious leader of sorts who's eager to welcome the return of Osiris. Out of these three, Osiris and Sagira seem like great additions to the game. Hopefully they'll be on the level of Asher Mir and Failsafe because those two offer hilarious standout performances.

Destiny 2 is available now on the Microsoft Store and other retailers for $59.99. The game will be enhanced for Xbox One X on December 5, 2017, when the Curse of Osiris expansion launches for everyone. The game runs at "4K" resolution on Xbox One X and "adaptive 4K" on PlayStation 4 Pro.
