Check out Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris’ new armor and weapons

New, 20 comments

And clear some hard drive space while you’re at it

Destiny 2 developer Bungie might’ve canceled a livestream meant to show off the gear that’s coming in next week’s Curse of Osiris expansion, but the studio published a brief trailer today to provide a glimpse of the armor, weapons and other new items.

The trailer, which you can see above, contains fewer than 20 seconds of gameplay footage. That may be enough of a tease for Destiny players at this point — after all, Curse of Osiris drops in five days, on Dec. 5. Eagle-eyed fans will notice new weapons like a Veist-manufactured grenade launcher that fires purple robot grenades. This power weapon is known as The Colony, and if its grenades hit the ground, they’ll home in on enemies and blow them up.

At the very end of the trailer, we see a brand-new exotic emote, Mic Drop. It’s one of the new emotes that are coming in season 2 of Destiny 2, which kicks off with the launch of Curse of Osiris next Tuesday. Note that the season 2 exotic emotes will replace the existing ones, such as Six Shooter and Salty.

Bungie also announced the storage requirements for Curse of Osiris. Pre-order customers can start downloading the expansion a bit early, starting at 11 a.m. ET on launch day. They’ll need a bunch of free space to initiate the download: 88 GB on PlayStation 4, 68 GB on Windows PC and 44 GB on Xbox One. (The space requirement on PS4 is twice the Xbox One size because of the way Sony handles installation packages.) Following the installation of the expansion and the Dec. 5 update that comes with it, Destiny 2 will take up 44 GB on console and 68 GB on PC.

Destiny 2 is scheduled to be down for maintenance tomorrow from 11 a.m. ET to 5 p.m. ET. Bungie will take the game offline once again on Dec. 5, and when the studio brings the servers back, Curse of Osiris will be live. Note also that, as Bungie previously announced, the daily and weekly reset times are changing with the debut of this expansion. Instead of 4 a.m. EST, the reset will now occur at noon EST.
