Bungie community manager David Dague confirmed in a forum post that they indeed introduced “placeholders” for the Destiny DLCs in the latest patch, and that more details will follow.
Check out the full forum post below.
“Hey, Bungie Community.
I hope you had a nice weekend.
We noticed that you noticed that we already have plans for upcoming content packs in Destiny.
We do! They have activity names (which may or may not change) and we have a really good idea what they’re going to contain. They even have placeholder nodes in the Director, as you’ve already discovered.
But neither of the Expansion Packs we’ve announced are finished.
People at Bungie are hard at work to complete content for our first post launch pack, “The Dark Below,” as I type these words. It will be finished soon. It releases in December. Soon, we’ll detail it out for you so you can see exactly what we’ve been working on.
Thanks for playing. Thanks for the passion. We know you want details. We’ll talk more soon.”
Original story (Gold Chest locations info available after this story):
A Destiny bug has revealed possible future content.
After patch 1.0.2 went live over the weekend, players have reported that some locked content have appeared in the map screens.
These content require players to own an expansion before they can be accessed, much like how main game content was locked during the alpha and beta test phase.
Youtube user Kinsey_92 has a video showing the locked content, and Redditor KilledByDice has compiled a list of the story, strike, and raid missions:
> Strike [Level 10] – The Jovian Complex: A new Hive brood gathers it’s strength beneath the cosmodrome. Find their master and purge them all.
> Story Mission [Level 18] – The Veil Lifted: Root out the Hive beneath the Cosmodrome and discover a long-hidden secret of the Golden Age.
> Story Mission [Level 18] – The Seeding: Investigate the return of ancient Hive Wizards, preparing Earth for Crota’s reign.
> Story Mission [Level 20] – Gone to Ground: Find a Wolves baron and his conspirators who have betrayed the Queen and are hiding in the Cosmodrone.
> Strike [Level 14] – The House of Wolves: No description
> Strike [Level 26] – The Summoning Pits: Xyor, the Unwed awaits your arrival at the bottom of the Hellmouth (part of an exotic bounty not new expansion content. Thanks to /u/The7ruth)
> Raid [Level 28] – Crota’s End: He waits in the dark below
> Story Mission [Level 20] – The Wakening: Stop the Hive from summoning Crota and consuming our worlds.
> Story Mission [Level 20] – Wolves’ Harvest: Track down the Queen’s traitorous Wolves and recover what they’ve stolen from the Awoken.
> Story Mission [Level 22] – The Citadel: Ascend to the top of the Vex stronghold on Venus and assassinate the Wolves’ Kell
> Strike [Level 20] – The Hypogeum: The resurrection of the Black Garden has begun. Stop the Vex before the Garden’s heart beats again.
> Raid [Level 28] – Reef Raid: No Description
> Skirmish – Only the worthy may face the Trials of Osiris for only the worthy are strong enough to endure what is to come. A string of victories will earn you great rewards – but lose three times and you’re out.
– 3v3 Team Deathmatch
– Level Advantages Enabled
– Weekly Rewards
– Trial Set Gear
– Ascendant Materials
– Crucible Marks”
Some fans are not very happy with the “leaked” content because they suspect that the content for a “future” expansion is already found on the the physical game disc or in the digital download, but Forbes and VG247 both reason that the content are “placeholders” that came with the recent patches instead.
Bungie has yet to comment on the leak.
Still looking trying to locate all gold chest locations? Check them out below.
Chest 1: On starting the Restoration mission, turn right and make your way into the building directly in front of you. Chest 1 is sitting on top of a desk.
Chest 2: From the Chest 1 location, head west along a near by river, and Chest 2 can be spotted near the coast.
Chest 3: This chest is located in a cave near the Forgotten Shore to the Mothyards.
Chest 4: Either during or after battling with the Wizard inside the Lunar Complex during The Dark Within, head over to the crates on the left side of the room for Chest 4.
Chest 5: This one is a bit tricky. It is located below the raised platforms of the Sepiks Prime battle, but players have to keep at eye out for the boss if they want to stay alive.
Chest 1: The first chest on the Moon can be found by after trekking to the Hive temple and across the bridge that stretches towards a nearby ship. Look for a ramp heading down, and it should be there on your right.
Chest 2: Look for a good sized rock cropping on the left side of the road between Archer’s Line and the Hellmouth, and Chest 2 should be on the other side.
Chest 3: Go to the top of the hill directly in front of the Archer’s Line spawn point from the location of Chest 2, head towards the nearby dome, and face the Hive Fortress when you spot it. Chest 3 should be in a cave that you will notice.
Chest 4: This chest can be found during or after the World’s Grave event from the Destiny campaign. While on the platform where Ghost scans the Grave, look towards the room’s entrance, and glance somewhere down and to the right near the water in the floor of the room for Chest 4.
Chest 5: Another boss battle, another chest. When battling Phogoth in the Hive’s Summoning Pits, head to the lowest platform in the room, and the gold chest is found between two stair cases.
Chest 1: Go to the Scablands from the Barrens and you should find a Cabal outpost full of heavily-armored enemies. Check the tops of crates piled in the area for Chest 1.
Chest 2: From the Barrens, head towards the Hollows. There should be an explorable opening in the ground near the downtown area, and the gold chest can be found there.
Chest 3: This chest is located in Dust Palace and behind a desk inside of a room with a number 3 on the door.
Chest 4: The fourth gold chest is located inside the Legion’s Keep at the Iron Line. Upon reaching the entrance to the keep, take the walkway on your left and jump over the pipes in the corner of the room. Look up and to your left for a walkway which you should take to reach Chest 4.
Chest 5: Chest 5 is located in Tharsis Junction. Look for a Vex gate behind a train, and go through a small room located nearby. Head down the path for the last chest.
Chest 1: The first chest on Venus is located between Ishtar Academy and the Shattered Coast. While on the road, keep your eyes pealed for a U-shaped tunnel that heads underground. Chest 1 on Venus is found on the right side of the tunnel at the base of one of the pillars.
Chest 2: This gold chest can be found on Campus 9, near the back of the first building encountered by players. Head for the big orange building, follow the catwalk that stretches on the outside of the building and you will find the chest at the end of the catwalk.
Chest 3: The third chest on Venus can be found in Winter’s Lair, sitting on a balcony that overlooks the map’s central cavern. You need a bit of jumping skills to go onto the balcony on the path to The Cinders. With a bit of skill, leap from the balcony to the landing where the chest is located.
Chest 4: After climbing onto the Ketch (the docked ship from the Scourge of Winter mission), go right to the back of the ship, and spot the gold chest sitting on the ship’s exterior.
Chest 5: Go to Ishtar Commons over the N/Gen Branch, and head into the first enclosed office building. Look through the cubicles found inside, and you should soon spot the last Venus chest.
