Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris launch trailer preps Guardians for War

It adds new challenges and raises the player level and power level cap for characters, but at the same time, the raised levels have now locked vanilla players out of content they could once access.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Endgame content in Destiny focuses on raids and the Nightfall strike, as well as the more challenging "Prestige" versions of those activities. Destiny 2 has a Gold trophy called "The Prestige" which requires players to "Complete the Leviathan Raid or a Nightfall Strike on Prestige difficulty". Both have been raised to a 330 recommended Power Level. As of Tuesday December 5, this trophy is now completely unobtainable for anyone that does not own the Curse of Osiris expansion for Destiny 2, which means that if you didn't get it before then, the Platinum trophy is now not possible without paying extra money.

Curse of Osiris is the game's first expansion, and it just received a launch trailer.

Since the release of "Curse of Osiris" yesterday, players have found that the Exotic Trace Rifle practically shreds anything in player versus player (PvP) play. But for folks who haven't purchased the new content, it's become much more hard to access the high-level missions that make up the endgame.

So if you're playing on Destiny 2 without the expansion, you're stuck at 305 Power Level and left out in the cold from the nice 330 endgame content.
