Destiny 2 has now been officially unveiled, and gamers are circling September 8 on their calendars, which is when Bungie will unleash the sequel on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Details are streaming out about the title, and this latest tidbit comes directly from the game’s own store listing on the Microsoft Store.


The Expansion Pass is now available for pre-order and will feature two main expansions (that we know of so far) going by the promotional material provided for the listing.

As you can see in the image, the Expansion Pass banner features two flags: the symbol of Osiris (yellow), and the symbol of Rasputin (teal).

These symbols are important because they give us an insight into how Bungie might be developing and expanding the game’s lore.

Firstly, let’s take a look at Osiris. This is interesting because, obviously, the Trials of Osiris is a PVP mode in the original game. As an expansion pass, it suggest we’ll probably learn more about Osiris, who is an old Warlock and former Vanguard that was exiled from the City.

Seeing as though the City was seemingly destroyed as per the game’s reveal trailer, this may be Osiris’ opportunity to recruit even more Guardians to the cause.

Bungie had hinted at wanting to dive into Osiris more in the original game, but it’s clear that they’ve left that for Destiny 2.

Now let’s take a look at the Rasputin banner.

Rasputin was created during the Golden Age, and is a Warmind AI that was initially tasked with protecting against the Darkness.

This stands to be a far more intriguing element of the expansion series, as we already learnt quite a bit about him in the first game via a few missions.

It was originally planned that he would be the focus of the main Destiny store after being kidnapped by the Hive and taken to the Dreadnaught, with the primary goal being to rescue him.

This story portrayed him as an Exo, with future DLC eventually revealing him to be controlled by the warmind. This expansion could reveal him to have evolved and turned into something else entirely.
