December 5th is a big day for Destiny fans. The first expansion for Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris, is available now featuring tons of new content. As such, a new patch (Update 1.1.0) has launched alongside it tweaking some of the title’s gameplay.

As Destiny 2 is transitioning to the new expansion with a higher level cap, the recommended Power for some of the game’s activities have increased; events such as Strikes and Nightfalls will require a Power of 270 while the Leviathan Raid requires 300.

Additionally, the anticipated 4K and HDR support for Destiny 2 has been implemented. Xbox One X users can now experience the popular shooter in 4K with high dynamic range lighting; PlayStation 4 Pro users will have “adaptive” 4K which means it will scale the resolution up or down to maintain frame rate.

A slew of fixes have also been utilized to balance gameplay elements such as class abilities, weapons, armor, UI, and more that aims to generate a more positive experience.

Curse of Osiris is the newest and first expansion for Bungie’s recently released shooter Destiny 2. The add-on will feature a new campaign that formerly introduces Osiris, the most infamous Guardian in Destiny lore and the namesake for the Trials of Osiris activity. It is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out the full patch notes below:
