Destiny 2: The Final Shape reviews tank over errors, but is it good?

destiny 2 the final shape

Within 24 hours of release, the Steam page of Destiny 2: The Final Shape is flooded with negative reviews courtesy of a “currant error,” but is the DLC actually good?

June 4 was poised to be the day Destiny 2 would hit an all-time high player count. After a 24-hour downtime, the servers came back up with the hotly anticipated DLC that will mark a climactic showdown between Guardians and the Witness. The launch day was expected to be plagued with bugs and server issues caused by the high traffic, but the error codes are far worse than anyone had predicted.

A day after its release, Destiny 2: The Final Shape is sitting at mostly negative reviews due to error codes that keep booting players into orbit. Out of all the errors, “currant” is the main culprit, forcing players to repeat the same missions over and over again.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape DLC plagued with server issues

Destiny 2 cabbage, currant, and weseal error codes are disrupting player progress after the release of the Final Shape DLC. Due to constant disconnections, many have failed to get past the first mission.

Players are voicing their frustration as the currant error code repeatedly appears during the cutscenes after the Transmigration mission. Each time, players are forced to restart the game as soon as they get tossed into the Pale Heart of the Traveler. Queue times have also stretched past an hour, only adding to players’ exasperation, especially when they are booted again due to the currant error.

These issues and other error codes that skip the cut scenes, have been ruining the story experience.

The developer has taken notice of the errors and has issued an apology with assurance that it’s working on a fix.

“We built The Final Shape to be an exciting, cathartic, story-driven adventure for everyone to enjoy. We’re truly sorry if connection issues and instability is getting in the way of that experience, and we promise to keep working until these issues are resolved,” the Destiny 2 team said.

However, the damage has been done. Destiny 2’s Steam page shows a red “mostly negative” reviews sign, with only 39% positive reviews. The whole ordeal has also prevented the game from almost hitting an all-time high player count of 314,634, just 2,000 players short of breaking its February 2023 record of 316,750 players. 

Is Destiny 2: The Final Shape any good?

Destiny 2: The Final Shape has received generally positive reviews from those who have been able to play it.

The Final Shape is meant to be the conclusion to the long-running storyline of the game. Those who have been able to progress deeply enough have praised the story, though discourse surrounding the actual gameplay content has been more mixed.

Though the rollout has been rocky, these server issues will likely be fixed. Once that happens, players will likely be treated to a generally solid experience alongside the ability to get new Dungeons and Dragons-themed items.
