If a recent rumor is to be believed then “God of Mars” will be the name of the second expansion pack releasing for Destiny 2 in the coming months.
Posting on Reddit last week, user “GodsofMarsLeak” shared alleged screenshots of the listing from both the Japanese and North American PlayStation Stores. Based on the information provided, players will be heading out to the red planet on a rescue mission to free Rasputin and defeat the shenanigans of Charlemagne.
Destiny 2 Expansion II: Gods of Mars sends your Guardian on a long journey to a brand new destination – the Frigid Vale of Mars, with an array of new missions, adventures, and enemies to fight. Charlemagne has reawoken on Mars and has imprisoned Rasputin within an ancient vault. Work with the elusive Ana Bray – long thought to be dead, in order to combat Charlemagne’s Remnants, free Rasputin, and uncover the secrets of Clovis Bray.
There will be new story missions and adventures, as well as new coperative and competitive multiplayer activities. Players can also expect to earn new powerful weapons, armor, and gear to combat the new enemy faction and bosses. Most importantly, the new destination will feature new branches of the lore and secrets that have gone uncovered so far.
Provided that the rumor is legitimate, God of Mars will officially release in May for Destiny 2. It will weigh in just under 70 GB.
The community, though, is a bit divided on the claims. Some have pointed out inconsistencies and translation mistakes in the listing from the Japanese PlayStation Store. However, majority do believe that the second expansion pack will indeed take place on Mars.
Both Activision and Bungie have refrained from providing an statement on the matter. It is best to simply take this with a grain of salt because if it is true then you can expect an official acknowledgement to arrive in the next month or two.
Destiny 2 received Curse of Osiris as its first expansion pack last month. It attracted criticism for the unorthodox locking of vanilla content that was already paid for when players bought the game back in September. Bungie took a week to address this matter before heading out on its vacations.
