Activision and Bungie have just released the Curse of Osiris DLC for Destiny 2. And according to reports, Bungie has locked some content that was previously available to people behind this new DLC.
Oh, look, the same shit they pulled with the first one.
Yea not falling for this crap again.
Yep, me too. I remember when entire maps disappeared (Moon map from Crucible for example) never to return even when the DLC was purchased.
Unlike the first one though, this time they've locked a lot of the cool stuff behind the microtransaction stuff not to mention from the sounds of it, this doesn't even deserve to be called an expansion. Hard to believe this is the same Bungie whose games I used to pull all nighters regularly playing for the past 15 years. Hope they pull their fingers out because unlike EA with their Battlefront 2 controversy, Bungie don't have anything else to fall back on and right now their fans are super pissed off at them.
Without people like Joe Staten and Marty O'Donnell, Bungie is basically nothing but a meaningless name for douchebags like Luke Smith to use to collect cash.
That's what happens when you sell your soul to Activision or EA.
I don't see a problem. If you're still interested in playing the game wouldn't you have obviously gotten the newest content?
What?? That's got to be the worst logic I've ever heard. I'm interested in playing the game I paid $60 for. I'm not interested in this DLC so I have to pay another $20 to keep playing the game I already paid $60 for? Do you understand how DLC works? It's not a subscription, I paid full price for the damn game.
Technically, you paid $60 for an online only game that has an evolving storyline and constantly changing content. What you're asking for is not offered for games like Destiny. It sucks you didn't know this ahead of time. A lot of us learned our lessons with the first game, and have avoided this one as a result.
How can this be the worst logic you've ever heard? There is no logic to what he said at all. He's a mindless bot who probably works for Bungie or EA.
So i need to buy the new content to play the old content that I've already paid for? Wow.
Isn’t this like the first Destiny where depending on the weekly rotation, non-dlc owners missed some weeks?
You should not force them. If the content is good people will support it. Reviews so far say it's not worth it. The only reason I bought this was to try it on the PC but the franchise is built on making money so I won't get Destiny 3.
True, but Activision is forcing you to re-buy the same content you already bought through the Osiris DLC. You don't purchase the Osiris DLC you lose access to the content you already bought.
I think we see the problem NiteX
This right here is why gaming is going to shit. Because of people like you that are ok with this and accept this as normal. You are the type of customer that EA and Activision love, blind consumers that will purchase anything that is put in front of them, regardless of whether it has any actual value or not.
It's basically a hidden subscription, and they pulled the crap with the first game as well. Basically, certain maps and modes are now locked unless you buy the DLC, when they were available the day prior. It's telling people they can't enjoy the content they already had in the game unless they cough up more money, and it's a piss poor business model. Well, poor if you're the consumer anyways. Activision is laughing all the way to the bank.
The same reason I wouldn't go to a restaurant, pay for a delicious meal, eat 80% of it, then happily pay another $10 when they take my meal away and tell me I need to pay to finish it, but they'll give me another side as well.
Trading this P.O.S in done with this franchise.
welcome to the club
Shame that you can't trade it in for your full $60 back. This mindless carbon copy of a game wasn't worth that much in the first place.
Bruh thats not cool. Time we made our voices heard. But to be honest I dont play it
Star Wars: Battlefront 3 & Destiny 3 will be out in 2019 :)
They dont need to come out at all if they are gonna keep pulling this crap on us
Never stopped them before now has it
@theRandomOne There's never been the pushback that is going on now, either. It's about time we, as gamers, started standing up to this BS.
You know people like NiteX will gladly gobble up whatever these assholes release.
Shame on you bungie. Shame on you ! I wish the European Union takes this case and makes bungie pay... pay hard. Sue their asses.
Why involve the EU though? not sure if people should ask the government to fix everything. Just stay away from their games and explain to your buddies why they should too, then soon enough the ball will start rolling and developers will notice a drop in playercount.
the EU isn't even a government.
If I didn't get the season pass in the limited edition I would be really annoyed. In fact I am annoyed as my friends don't own the season pass and have yet to attempt the raid.
What else is new.
Well I was considering getting back into the game but after seeing that I can't play the full base game without spending extra money? I'm not interested.
The Nightfall part is only feasible if the weekly is one of the new strikes. However, locking trials and Prestige mode raid for even Calus is just BS.
The biggest turd is between EA and Activision. They seem to enjoy competing for first place.
Give Take Two a chance... They are already talking loot boxes in all future games so Borderlands 3 and Red Dead 2 don't look promising. Could try to sneak in for worst practices ever.
Is clear that game publishers/developers will not police themselves and hold themselves from anti-consumer practices. Gamers have done nothing to solve this issue. Is time for our government to control the greediness of the game creators and publishers
Fk Bungie, partnering up with Activision was the worst thing that ever happened to this studio. Fk Activision to but thats nothing new because they are a POS greedy ass publisher. I mean what else can you say about Bungie? They went from being a beloved developer under MS for Halo to what they are now since working with Activision.
...and this is why I'm sitting out Destiny 2. Fool me once...
They fooled me twice. Fuck
Ok, if thats true I am outta Destiny 2 and the whole franchise for good.
And people said that Bungie is better since splitting from MS but with things like this all they've done is become greedy
Gave it 3 years of care and devotion, which is more than they will ever give back. So for that reason @bungie... You're fired.
I was talking with a coworker this afternoon about this DLC. He said that he enjoyed it but it was way too short. The struggle to find any more positives about Destiny 2 became more evident as he continued to talk about it. He says he did not want to give me any spoilers in hopes that I would buy the game but I told him there was less than a 1% chance that I will buy this game. By the end of that conversation I thought that I could not be more convinced that I made the right decision in not purchasing this game; I was wrong. After seeing this article I'm even more convinced now that I made the right decision in skipping this game. Activision and Bungie would have to give me a free copy and pay me to play this freaking game and I'm not certain that I would bother if they offered to do so. Imo, Activision is who they have always been. Post MS, Bungie is barely a shell of who they were. Good for them on leaving MS to spread their wings but what we see now is the result of losing key people and partnering with Activision.
Just FYI, the game's story is so generic and uninteresting I don't even think you can spoil it.
More anti consumerism bs. Considering what the gaming industry has become, I guess shit like this is to be expected. It's even more mind bending that a game like this, Destiny 1.4, thinks that it's such hot shit that it can do something like this. Give me a break. I mean what are the player numbers on this carbon copy, right-click copy and paste of game? Not that great I'm guessing.
just sold off destiny 2 a week ago, dont think ill ever get it again now.
