Destiny 2's Trails Of Osiris Is Finally Coming Back--But Not This Week
Bungie has a fix for the issue that caused it to disable Trials of Osiris in Destiny 2, which is coming with a patch next week.
Destiny 2's toughest multiplayer challenge, the Trials of Osiris, has been disabled for more than a month. Bungie says it has found the issue that led it to cancel Trials soon after the release of the Beyond Light expansion, and we now have a date for when we can expect Trials to return: December 18.
Bungie released the date on Twitter alongside its This Week at Bungie blog post. The fix for the issue is coming in a future update--but since Bungie didn't identify it as part of a hotfix coming to the game on December 8, we can probably expect the patch with the weekly reset on December 15.
The team has identified the issue and is currently developing a future Hotfix. Trials of Osiris is currently planned to return on 12/18. https://t.co/tfGUvyG2lL— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) December 3, 2020
Trials of Osiris is the peak player-vs.-player challenge that Destiny 2 offers, with loot rewards to match. Available only on weekends, it requires players in teams of three to take on other teams in a series of elimination matches. The goal is to win seven matches in a row without losing any, which is known as "flawless." Starting with Beyond Light, teams that can manage a flawless Trials run can win special Adept weapons, which offer stat boosts that aren't available anywhere else in the game.
The additions to Beyond Light have made Trials an enticing activity for a lot of high-level players, but Bungie announced it was disabling the mode on November 12, just a couple of days after Beyond Light's release. The developer had previously pegged the return of Trials on November 27, but when the day came, Bungie delayed Trials again.
Bungie also laid out some changes coming with the December 8 weekly reset. Another hotfix is set for that date, which will make a number of small fixes and return the Prophecy dungeon back into the game--another activity that was disabled with Beyond Light's release. December 8 also marks the release of Bungie's next-generation upgrades for Destiny 2, so expect improved framerates and other adjustments on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
