Bungie is reverting some changes made with the Curse of Osiris expansion in Destiny 2 that locked players out of certain activities if they did not purchase the DLC.

Last week, players reported being unable to participate in such activities as the Prestige Raid, Prestige Nightfall Strike, and Trials of the Nine. Today, Bungie has acknowledged mistakes were made and some changes that will address those mistakes.

In a blog post, Bungie outlined a hotfix coming this week to rectify the fact that non-owners of the DLC cannot play activities they originally got with the base game.

To do so, the Prestige Raid's Power level will be brought back down to 300, and its rewards will drop down to match. Last week it was readjusted to 330, and non-owners were locked out due to physically not being able to level up past 305.

Trials of the Nine is changing, too, in that the PvP mode will only require Curse of Osiris when it features a map that came with the expansion. For all other weeks, it will be available to all players. Limited time events like Iron Banner, Faction Rally, and The Dawning will all be available for everyone.

The Prestige Nightfall, however, will remain at 330, meaning that Curse of Osiris will be required to access it. An achievement known as "The Prestige" will be changed, though, so it does no longer require the activity to earn it.

All of these changes are scheduled to go live tomorrow in update 1.1.1, along with a number of other quality of life changes in an attempt to improve the game.
