Forums - Gaming Discussion - Some Destiny 2 Launch Content Locked Behind New DLC Now, Impossible To Platinum The Game Without DLC Now

https://wccftech.com/destiny-2-content-locked-dlc/

Destiny 2 has recently received its first major DLC, Curse of Osiris, adding more content to the game developed by Bungie released a couple of months back on PC and consoles. Sadly, it seems like it also removed content for those who haven’t bought the DLC. According to reports, the Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris DLC prevents regular access to the prestige Raid, Nightfall, and Trials, which could all be accessed prior to the DLC pack’s release weekly. Apparently, all three activities have been moved to some sort of DLC playlist. Additionally, this also prevents players from obtaining all achievements and the PS4 version Platinum Trophy. Reddit user dd179 also noted that Bungie did the same in the original Destiny.

In Destiny 1, there would be around 6 or so PvP playlists at any given time, with different game modes such as Rumble, Clash, Control, etc. If you had the base game, you always had access to all of the playlists and you could play every single mode. If a new DLC dropped and you didn’t buy it, most of the playlists would get locked out for you, since everything moved to a DLC play list. Instead of having all 6 playlists, you would only get to play Clash and Control, for example. The same thing would happen with the Strikes playlists. Instead of having three strike playlists to choose from, you would get just one playlist that wasn’t even worth your time, since the gear it dropped was way below the cap of the vanilla game. You couldn’t even do the hard mode you previously had access to. This is one of the scummiest practices I’ve ever seen in AAA gaming.

Trophies are just cosmetic, so it's absolutely fine.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

This brings the whole DLCs market to a whole new level. Adding content through DLC? That's old business! Welcome to the future, where DLC removes content unless you pay again?

Now, kidding aside, I expect Bungie to fix that very soon, or else they can start working on a new franchise (and maybe a new name for the studio) because Destiny would be dead.

I put 703 hours into D1 and plat'd it. I've put 93 into D2 and it just doesn't feel the same anymore. I HAD to get every exotic/raid set/emblem/shader/etc......now it's just not the same chase. I did the 4 raid challenges to get them emblems but I can't be bothered to suffer infinite hours to beat the artificially difficult prestige raid this time around. I'll beat the lair to say I did it, and doubt I'll grind all 11 verses (did 1). *sad*

This is very dickish. Even if it was an accident, they better get some quick and important backlash, unless Activision tries to make it a common practice.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Well honestly that's not the issue.  The fact that people who bought the game are now locked out of modes that they could play fine 24-48 hours ago is a horrible move from Bungie in fact worse than any lootboxes drama.

It's not when the reason you can't get them is because you've been locked out of the end game.



I don't see the problem here, the players knew what they were going into when they supported Destiny 2, even though Destiny 1 was executed so poorly. If you ever played Destiny 1 or heard about how bad it was, and bought Destiny 2, and are complaining about how they're screwing their consumers, you need a reality check.



atleast it doesnt split the playerbase anymore.

Don't need a reality check to see that they are screwing consumers it is unacceptable and I am surprised that people rather accept their practice and fight complainers instead.
