Destiny 2’s latest major expansion has finally arrived and with the introduction of Beyond Light comes an all-new Season Pass as well. From the price to every item up for grabs, here’s what you need to know.

Season of the Hunt is the latest Season in Destiny 2 as we kick off Year 4 and the Beyond Light era. While you venture through no destinations, complete new objectives, and reach new power, one constant remains in place. No matter what you’re working on, you’ll always be ranking up your Season Pass.

Regardless of which version you bought, or even if you’re playing the free version of Destiny 2, there’s something for everyone to unlock. 100 unique tiers of content, in fact. From weapons to Upgrade Modules and exclusive loot, you won’t want to miss out.

With Beyond Light still fresh, here’s an early rundown on everything there is to know about the Season of the Hunt Season Pass.

How much does the Season of the Hunt Season Pass cost?

Everything from an exclusive armor set to new Exotic weapons can be found in the Season Pass.

No different from previous Seasons, the latest slew of content comes with two tiers. There’s a free track for everyone to progress through along with a premium tier with additional rewards.

The premium side of things will run you $10, though there is an option to purchase Beyond Light with the Season Pass included for $50 in total.

What’s included in the new Season Pass?

If you want to make the most out of the current Season, you can claim over 100 items from the Season Pass alone.

As per usual, the Season Pass is littered with various resources, Engrams, and materials. Upgrade Modules are perhaps the most common, while plenty of Bright Dust and Eververse Engrams fill up additional tiers.

On the free side of the equation, unlocks aren’t guaranteed at each and every tier. Meanwhile, on the premium side, you can expect something new every time you reach a new rank. Specific rewards are much more valuable on the premium side as well. Legendary Shards, Exotic Engrams, and even exclusive gear are just a few of the items on offer.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of any given Season Pass is the exclusive Exotics locked away. There are six Exotic items up for grabs in the Season of the Hunt Season Pass. Below is a full rundown on all of the, and the tiers you’ll find them at.

  • Exotic Shotgun: Duality – Unlocked at Tier 35 of the free track.
  • Exotic Ghost Shell: Digital Cortex – Unlocked at Tier 50 of the premium track.
  • Exotic Cipher – Unlocked at Tier 55 of the free track.
  • Exotic Sparrow: Firecrest – Unlocked at Tier 90 of the premium track.

Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris delayed again

Despite the new PVE content released in Beyond Light, the Destiny 2 expansion also led to a delay for the game’s top PVP mode: Trials of Osiris. Originally delayed until November 27, Bungie has once again pushed back the activity’s launch in Beyond Light.

The core of the Destiny franchise has always revolved around one thing: the chase for new loot. Since the release of the original Destiny, developer Bungie has aimed to provide players with interesting and powerful gear to grind for.

While the bulk of content in Destiny has always been PVE-related – Strikes, seasonal activities, and Raids – the franchise has maintained a strong PVP player base as well. For those who spend their time in the Crucible, Trials of Osiris is the top-tier activity to look forward to since its reintroduction in Season of the Worthy.

Following the release of Beyond Light, Destiny 2’s pinnacle PVP activity has now seen not one but two separate delays. The game’s community is once again expressing their frustration with Bungie’s handling of the popular 3v3 mode.

Trials of Osiris delayed again

With the release of Beyond Light, developer Bungie introduced Stasis subclasses into Destiny 2. While most players enjoy the new Darkness-based abilities, the game’s PVP community has been less than thrilled with the performance of Stasis in the Crucible.

Bungie’s first official response to Stasis in PVP came when the developer announced the original delay of Trials only two days after Beyond Light’s release. Then, on November 27 – the same day that Trials of Osiris was supposed to make its debut in Beyond Light – Bungie once again announced a delay in the mode’s release via their support account on Twitter.

While Bungie community manager dmg04 indicated the delay was due to another Stasis-related issue, players listed off other potential causes including issues with swords in the Crucible, and even a bug that turn players invisible.

Community frustrated with second delay

For some of the Destiny 2 community, patience has run out since the original delay. Many prominent content creators have expressed their frustration regarding Bungie’s handling of Trials in Beyond Light.

Destiny 2 streamers GernaderJake and Gigz, both of whom participate in Trials of Osiris regularly, voiced their concerns with how Bungie is handling the game’s top PVP activity.

GernaderJake stated his belief that there were better ways for Bungie to address the issues instead of simply disabling Trials of Osiris entirely.

Gigz called out the developer for their lack of attention to PVP – something Bungie has specifically mentioned in the past when discussing their design philosophy in regards to the Crucible.

Although many of the responses were negative, some tried to put a more positive spin on things. Destiny 2 YouTuber KackisHD joked that Bungie continues to delay Trials because the game mode’s reward location – The Lighthouse on Mercury – was vaulted when Beyond Light released.

When is Trials coming to Beyond Light?

While Bungie confirmed a return date for Trials of Osiris after the first delay, the developer did not confirm when the mode would make its return in their announcement on November 27.

Players should keep an eye on Bungie’s social media for further updates on the return of Trials.
