Destiny 2’s PVP mode is about to get an entirely new trio of PVP maps for the Crucible. The two which we had the opportunity to included Pacifica and Wormhaven, the latter being a PlayStation exclusive.
Pacifica has players face off on the surface of Titan. Similar in design to the surface area of the explorable Titan, the Pacifica map will have you either facing off in the narrow hallways and corridors that force you to fight over key entrances, or the long open interior hallways with elevated and ground level points of attack. Meanwhile on the exterior, it’s much more open offering, little cover to fight for the heavy or it’ll allow you to flank enemies defending the doorways.
Wormhaven, meanwhile, takes you to the depths of Titan, where you’ll find the world covered with Hive remnants. You can use these to grab cover and avoid opponents with the high ground, or you can run around and surprise anyone who holds the staircase to the upper areas. I had a lot of fun on this map, as there are many places you can engage and also allow yourself space retreat. It makes for some rewarding moments during firefights.
The Crucible additions are probably the strongest parts of Destiny 2’s Curse of Osiris DLC. While our build didn’t do anything to address fan concerns about the current balance of PVP, they do add compelling new grounds on which to test your skills. We’ll have our full impressions on December 5th when the full Curse of Osiris content releases.
Editor Note: Bungie did provide airfare and accommodations for IGN to cover Curse of Osiris.
