Bungie has canceled Trials of Osiris, again, due to a “recently discovered issue” relating to Crucible matches in Destiny 2. Here’s everything we know about when the top-level PvP mode will make its return in Beyond Light.
Trials of Osiris is the most competitive Crucible playlist a Guardian can join. Based around three-vs-three contests, the sudden-death mode is the pinnacle of PvP gameplay in Bungie’s sci-fi franchise. And, unfortunately, it gets delayed quite a bit.
Beyond Light’s launch week has been no different. Trials of Osiris, which was supposed to go live on the weekend, has been delayed, Bungie confirmed on Friday, Nov. 13.
The reason, the Destiny 2 developers said, was a “recently discovered issue” that would directly affect the competitive nature of the playlist.
While Bungie did not address the “issue” directly, it’s pretty obvious the delays are because of a new Beyond Light power, Stasis. The frosty new abilities have been dominating Crucible playlists since launch, making PvP nearly unplayable.
When will Trials of Osiris return?
Bungie delayed Beyond Light’s opening Trials of Osiris weekend on Nov. 13. They also chalked the following weekend, Nov 20-23. Thankfully, the wait to get into the competitive Destiny 2 playlist won’t be much longer than just those two weeks.
“Due to a recently discovered issue, Trials of Osiris will not be available until the weekend of November 27, 2020,” Bungie confirmed in their Nov. 13 tweet.
That means the earliest Guardians will be able to play Trials of Osiris during the new expansion will be Friday, Nov. 27. That is, if there aren’t more delays; last time Bungie halted the playlist, it was ‘AWOL’ for nearly two years.
Once Trials does finally return, players will have the chance to collect new “Adept” guns and weapons, as well as Beyond Light mods that can only be found by going undefeated.
Weapons collected from the competitive playlist have been tweaked slightly too. Starting in Beyond Light, “all existing Trials weapons have Adept versions.”
“Our intent is for all new Trials weapons to have an Adept version in the future, with their infusion caps matching the Season they were introduced in,” Bungie said.
“For the first round, their infusion caps will be set to that of Season of the Worthy. Additionally, we will be introducing Adept weapon mods into the sandbox in Beyond Light, which can only be applied to Adept weaponry.”
