Destiny 2 finally has its first comic adaptation, as Bungie releases its eagerly-anticipated Fall of Osiris for free online. In a similar fashion to the Overwatch online comics, the short release can be accessed panel-by-panel to all fans, giving those interested a small look into the origins of Osiris and Ikora.
The Fall of Osiris comic tells the story of how Osiris began to be outcast for his views on the Traveller, an event which resulted in the Guardian angering the Speaker and becoming something of a prophet to the masses. As Osiris grew more obsessed with his research into the Vex, his neglect of his duties as Vanguard Commander led to the man eventually abandoning his post, along with his student, Ikora Rey. The full comic can be read here.
Since that point, Osiris has been protecting life from afar, attempting to stop the Vex Mind from attacking the Solar System. In the newly-released Curse of Osiris expansion for Destiny 2, Osiris and the player’s Guardian work together to battle the Vex inside the Infinite Forest, picking up several years after where the comic left off.
This first look at a Destiny 2 comic is rather promising, as it looks to be a great new way to deliver story content, something that the series desperately needs. Although Destiny 2 certainly provides more of a story experience than its predecessor, there are still large sections of the lore that players want to know more about.
Though Curse of Osiris did offer a little bit more in the way of story, reception of the DLC has been primarily negative and players hoping to get some real value from their Season Passes have been, for the most part, left disappointed. What’s more, the expansion didn’t come close to fixing the numerous issues that Destiny 2 fans have been asking Bungie to look at ever since the game launched, but instead took away content from players who didn’t purchase the DLC.
Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
