Yea you won't be able to enjoy the game in it's entirety, obviously, and that's unfortunate considering that it was released a few weeks ago.
I think that Bungie really messed up this time with an expansion being released less than 2 months after launch.
The truth is that the base game is VERY barebones, there is little to no endgame content, few pvp maps, and no incentive at all to play open world content like adventures, lost sectors and public events after you've done your weekly milestones (which, aside from the raid, can be completed in a couple of hours). Bungie said last week that most of these issues will be addressed soon but that remains to be seen.
They really didn't learn from the mistakes of D1, and there are some stuff in this game that really pisses me off like the need to download a mobile app to form groups or going to sites like the100 to do that.
If you have friends to play with, it's still fun. The gameplay is top notch and the visuals are amazing, especially on PC
