Bungie’s Destiny 2 remains a focal point for the studio, with updates and downloadable content inspiring fans of the title to keep coming back for more. Today, the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game received a brand new patch, benefiting players who haven’t purchased DLC.


After undergoing a scheduled five-hour maintenance period today, Destiny 2‘s severs are back online with a new patch uploaded to show for it. This update, however, doesn’t add any completely new features nor does it address any glitches or balance issues. Instead, this update gives those who haven’t purchased the “Curse of Osiris” DLC pack two features that were previously exclusive to it.

Bungie’s patch note list can be seen below:

Iron Banner

  • Players who do not own Curse of Osiris may once again access Iron Banner when available

Faction Rallies

  • Players who do not own Curse of Osiris may once again pledge to Factions during Faction Rally events

People who lacked the “Curse of Osiris” DLC were formally unable to partake in the game’s Iron Banner or Faction happenings. That decision has thankfully been rescinded, meaning more Destiny fans can indulge themselves in the game’s universe.

Destiny 2‘s winter-themed The Dawning event is slated to continue until January 9. This event gives some of the most frequented locations in the game, particularly the Tower and Farm, a festive makeover. Moreover, avid fans can find new items to collect, and the aptly named Mayhem mode allows guardians to have fun with their innate powers.
