Destiny 2 hasn’t even launched yet but details around its first DLC expansion have surfaced online, revealing exclusive missions and an additional social area.

The leak comes via Kotaku, who claim to have received “high-level details” from more than one source that the upcoming DLC will be titled “The Curse of Osiris” (not to be mistaken for an Egyptian romp ala Tomb Raider or the upcoming Assassins Creed Origins) which will focus on Destiny’s mythical character of the same name.

The DLC will supposedly include a new strike mission, a patrol zone set on Mercury and a social space called the “Lighthouse”, the latter of which diehard fans of the first game will be familiar with, as an infamously tough-to-unlock space.

It comes as no surprise that the Activision-Bungie alliance has ambitious DLC plans for the highly anticipated sequel, but it certainly raises further questions about the modern-day practice of developers withholding content from their launch product.

Destiny 2 launches on PS4 and Xbox One on 6 September with the PC version following on 24 October. The PC Open Beta, which can run at gorgeous 4k and 60fps, is currently still accessible via Blizzard’s Battlenet platform for fans looking for a last minute pre-release taste of the sleek sci-fi action.
