Bungie finally revealed some details about the new raid content in Destiny 2. Curse of Osiris, the first expansion of the game, is set to launch on December 5, and it will also bring changes to the Leviathan raid. The recommended power level for the invasion will be increased to 300, but the core of the experience will not change. Instead, the developers will be implementing a “raid lair” called the Eater of Worlds.
“We are talking about the whole new activity for six players. Gamers can expect new puzzles, loot, encounters, as well as locations. Oh, we also have a new boss that you will need to fight at the end of the raid,” said Brendan Thorne, one of the Destiny 2 designers.
According to reports, the new raid lair will be shorter than the original Leviathan. That means that you can get fresh weapons, armor, and cosmetic improvements while investing less time in completing a raid.
“The activity will send gamers into the belly of the beast called Leviathan spacecraft,” said Stuart Monske, a designer working in the raid team.
Despite the fact that it will not be as long, Eater of Worlds will still be a difficult challenge. If you believe you are experienced enough, you can also try the Prestige mode, but you will do that at your own risk because you will “die a lot.”
“The activity supports the Guided Games option that Destiny 2 offers, but you will need to have at least 310 power level Guardian to be the leader for others through the raid lair,” said Thorne.
The developers are expecting that Eater of Worlds will add variety to the game when it launches on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. We can expect another raid lair next year along with the release of the second expansion.
Destiny 2 Server Maintenance Scheduled for November 17
In other news, the players should be aware that Bungie announced they would be temporarily closing the game for scheduled server maintenance. That will happen on November 17 from 8 AM to 12 PM PT. During that time, the developers will implement a hotfix that should repair some of the issues previously reported.
Bungie also revealed other details that will come with the Curse of Osiris expansion. These include Mercury, the new planet that players will explore, reconstructed Lighthouse, and a bunch of new gear. The DLC is currently available only as a part of the bundle that costs $34.99 in Microsoft Store.
