Destiny 2 Expansion List
Here is the Destiny 2 Expansion List including past and upcoming future expansions with details.
Curse of Osiris
Curse of Osiris is the first (DLC) expansion pack for Destiny 2. It was released on December 5, 2017. The plot of Curse of Osiris is based on Mercury and shows the Guardian’s attempts to save Osiris from the Vex to prevent a gloomy future. The expansion’s story revolves around the relationship between Osiris and his disciple, Ikora Rey.
Osiris returns after years of exile and contacts his former student, Ikora Rey. He finds the Vex from both past and future timelines are gathering on Mercury. Despite Ikora’s hesitation to believe Osiris, she asks the Guardian to find him and discover whether he can be trusted to count as an ally in the fight. The Vex has converted an area on Mercury into the Infinite Forest, an implicit simulation of the galaxy where the Vex uses their plans to bring into reality. The forest is commanded by Panoptes, Infinite Mind.
Forsaken is another (DLC) expansion pack for Destiny 2. It was released on September 4th, 2018. The expansion included significant updates to the game’s gameplay, weapons, and reward systems, storyline, game modes, and raid. The storyline is about a “Wild West” revenge tale as the Guardian and Vanguard face the loss of Cayde-6 and the rogue Fallen faction, the Scorn, led by Uldren Sov.
After years of turbulence, The Reef has started to corrupt into lawlessness. Cayde-6 and the Guardian are assigned to investigate the area and help mitigate the area’s main issues. When arriving at The Reef, a huge prison breach befalls at the Prison of Elders, releasing some of the most wanted and deadly criminals back into the universe.
Black Armory is the fourth expansion of Destiny 2 after Destiny 2: Forsaken. Being released on December 4th, 2018 it is the first expansion in the Destiny 2 Annual Pass. The expansion included new activity, raids, and new weaponry and armor to collect. It was revealed as a part of the Destiny 2 Road Map.
