It’s been quite a busy week! Plenty of leaks have been making their way online, and while we covered most of the interesting news here, this article will recap all the other leaks and spoilers that have been revealed. Credit goes to /u/a_tortoise_IRL for translating the following information from the French Canadian source of the guide leaks.
Let’s begin by looking at the leaked mission list for the Red War campaign, which features 17 main missions in total:
- Spark – Pt. 1
- Spark – Pt. 2
If all of these missions are of the same quality as ‘Homecoming’ was, we’re in for a real treat when it comes time to play through the primary story campaign.
In addition to the 17 campaign quests, there’s apparently around 30 ‘missions’ (assuming these are referring to Adventures). Each Adventure seems more like a complete level from D1 from the looks of things, and will be fully-voiced content that helps explain game lore.
On top of that, World Quests were once again mentioned, and it looks like there will be 4 of them. One for each planet perhaps? Apparently each World Quest breaks down into about 4 separate missions for a further total of 16 missions on top of the 30 mentioned above.
So far we’re looking at 17 potentially lengthy main campaign levels with an added 46 or so Adventure-length activities.
There was also a brief mention of some hidden content that will require players to find 2 keys in order to access. There was no information regarding where these keys are located or what they will unlock.
If Bungie has hidden away more content like the Black Spindle or No Time To Explain Exotic missions, and there’s no reason to believe that they haven’t based on how positive the feedback was for those hidden missions, we’ll once again be scouring every nook and cranny for weeks to come.
Not to mention, the game guide didn’t include the amount of Lost Sectors, and we know there will be many of those scattered around the worlds.
In addition to the leaked campaign mission titles, we also got a look at the list of Vanguard Strikes launching with Destiny 2:
- The Pyramidion
- The Inverted Spire
- Exodus Crash
- The Arms Dealer
- Savathun’s Song
In addition, there is also the PS4 exclusive:
- Lake of Shadows
While it’s not exactly a lengthy list by any means, if the Inverted Spire is anything to go by, the quality of Strikes has really been taken up a notch. Not only that, but it’s been reported that the Inverted Spire is actually one of the weaker Strikes of the bunch.
With a greater emphasis on open world activities being a potential source of gearing up for the end game, the quality of each Strike is definitely more appealing than the quantity. Each one will have Strike-specific loot too.
There will of course be additional Strikes to come in future expansions, and the first is coming as soon as December.
Speaking of which…
Jason Schreier over at Kotaku dropped some incredibly interesting information concerned the first bit of DLC for Destiny 2 which is apparently coming in December. It will be titled ‘The Curse of Osiris’ and will add a new storyline that sees Guardians attempting to rescue the mysterious figure from the robotic Vex.
The DLC will also open up a new patrol area on the planet Mercury and open up the Lighthouse for all to see in the form of a new social hub.
Raid & Trials Launch Dates
- The raid will unlock at 10AM PT on September 13
- Trials of the Nine will begin at 10AM PT on September 15
This gives players exactly one week to grind gear and prepare for their greatest D2 challenge!
