This Week at Bungie – We announced ‘Curse of Osiris’

This week at Bungie, we announced ‘Curse of Osiris’.

Our 2017 World Tour isn’t over yet. At Paris Games Week, we announced your next adventure in Destiny 2. If you missed the trailer, check out the mysteries that await.

Watch it again here.

We know you have a lot of questions about what you saw. Osiris has that effect on even his most devout Followers. We have answers coming soon.

As promised at TwitchCon, there will be three Bungie livestreams in November. We’ll use them to unpack more of what you’ll find in Expansion One.

Curse of Osiris-Stream One- New Stories to Tell

5AM AEST, Thursday, November 16

Many members of the Bungie development team will be in the hot seats to tell you all about what they’ve been working on. We hope you’ll join us to be a part of the moment and sound off in chat.

Choosing Sides 

You’re about to be called again to declare your loyalty during another week of Faction Rallies. If you are a new player who missed the first event, this will be an opportunity for you to define your character, join a movement, and earn some awesome gear. From November 7 until November 13, follow the call to action from your chosen leader to earn reward packages full of armor, weapons, and more. Your efforts in game will determine which faction is crowned the winner and given the right to sell their weapon as an additional reward.

Last time, Dead Orbit won the day. Can a new faction unseat them and become champions? Or will they defend their title and create a dynasty that will last forever?

To hear from Senior Designer, Tim Williams about the changes we’ve made since the last event, head over here.

In addition to the changes Tim spoke about, we’ve also added some new weapons for you to obtain from your faction of choice. Here is a look at what we added to the packages, and what each side has to offer if they emerge victorious.

New Monarchy Weapons

Future War Cult Weapons 

Dead Orbit Weapons
The winning faction – and ONLY the winning faction – will sell the weapon they’ve selected to lure you into their ranks. Aside from all the gear you stand to earn, this is what you’re fighting for.

New Monarchy Sword 

Future War Cult Fusion Rifle 

Dead Orbit Grenade Launcher 

Depending on who emerges the victor, you’ll be able to claim one of these rewards during the week following the ritual. If you pledged loyalty to the winner, you can pick it up for 1,000 Glimmer. For everyone else, it’s 50,000 Glimmer. That’s the price for disloyalty in the Tower.

Good luck, and may the best faction win! 

Movie of the Week

Movie of the Week: Sector 13

Honourable Mention: Warlocks are Good With Guns

We’re excited that Trials of the Nine is coming back tomorrow. This will be the first time PC players get to experience the thrill of playing through a scorecard with the chance of unlocking the mysteries of the spire and earning sweet loot.

New things to do are on the way…
