Curse of Osiris Reveal Stream
Some notes I took while listening to the stream on what the DLC has in store for us, focusing on lore, narrative and characters. Spoilers if you’re avoiding the stream and trailers.
In the trailer, Osiris is not technically in the Vault of Glass (though the people who identified it as the VoG were right.) He’s in the Infinite Forest, a reality-engine the Vex use to simulate all of reality that they can touch, including the VoG
They’re looking for something they need to brute-force reality, and Osiris is looking for it too (no clue as to what that is though)
The purpose of the DLC is to dig into some burning lore questions. Who is Osiris, why does he do the things that he does and where has he been? What is the Vex’s greater plan?
The events of the DLC take place a few months after winning the Red War. The Vex have been waiting for the pulse of Light that spreads out across the universe. It’s essential for what they want to do. The pulse opens a gate on Mercury and Vex start coming through
Osiris’s funny looking Sunbracers do have something to do with the Vex: he’s taken ‘some of their technology and made it his own’ (i.e. they’re filled with Vex mind fluid, but they didn’t say that outright in the stream)
