A new glitch in Bungie's sci-fi FPS Destiny has revealed what looks to be details on the content we can expect from the game's two expansions, revealing that the future DLC is at least partially on the disc.
Following this week's most recent patch, a handful of players have been able to get a glimpse at the future expansion content thanks to a glitch that locks them out of selecting missions, but in doing so opens up all
missions for viewing. This included the expansion content, which is listed as "requirement not met" where the requirement is to own a particular expansion. Others have noted that this was how content in the alpha/beta appeared, giving legitimacy to the glitch.
While I haven't personally seen the glitch myself, Redditor KilledByDice
) has collated all videos and screenshots of the future content which you can find below:

While it may be possible to fake screenshots and text descriptions, various YouTubers have uploaded the glitch in action, proving far more difficult to fake. Also adding to credibility is the fact all these pieces of content are listed on datamine website DestinyTracker
, among many others.
The discovery of such a glitch has caused questions to be raised among fans, who have shown a bit of anger in discovering that the DLC is on disc in some form, meaning content is there but locked away. Of course, it should be noted that this bug has only appeared this weekend, after several patches since Destiny's launch.
What we definitely know is that we'll just have to wait until the first expansion drops, which is planned for sometime in December. Bungie has not yet mentioned whether expansions will be sold separately, but for those eager you can purchase the Season Pass to gain future access.
