After a glitch was found in Destiny, players have stumbled across areas of locked content currently unavailable via a legitimate playthrough. This new content includes new strikes, raids and story missions spread out across the different planets within the game.
As you can imagine, this has caused quite a lot of outrage within the Destiny community. Players are wondering why content has been locked away from them, and understandably, it’s frustrating for those who have purchased the game to find out there is pre-existing content that is most likely planned for release as downloadable content later in the game’s life cycle.
Bungie have noticed that players have come across this new content and have addressed the issue with a new blog. The blog post lists some of the plans Bungie have for DLC, and remarks that the content in-game is by no means finished at this point in time.
DeeJ from Bungie posted on the Destiny forums to address the issue too, stating that “Neither of the Expansion Packs we’ve announced are finished. People at Bungie are hard at work to complete content for our first post launch pack, “The Dark Below,” as I type these words. It will be finished soon. It releases in December. Soon, we’ll detail it out for you so you can see exactly what we’ve been working on.”
Ever since Destiny has launched, some players have noticed that some areas of the world have been blocked off, and content, such as the Queen’s Emissary and various weekly strike missions, have been removed from the game, only to be added at a future point in time.
I personally don’t mind this approach Bungie has taken, but the content on-disk should be available as part of the full game at launch, without a doubt.
