Bungie will be unlocking its prime PvP mode in the coming hours with the weekly return of Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris. As usual, there will be plenty of new loot to earn and a lot of competition to try and make it to The Lighthouse. Destiny 2 is currently in the middle of a busy time, with Season of Arrivals continuing to move forward the story. More Pyramid ships have arrived and gamers will soon be dealing with the new threat, while also gathering what exotic weapons they can get their hands on.
As usual, Bungie will be unlocking Trials of Osiris on a Friday, with the popular crucible playlist launching at the same time across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Trials of Osiris will be launching at 6pm in the UK on July 10, and there will be no hints at what rewards will be available to those winning Fireteams.
The first information shared will be from Guardians, who will be able to confirm the first loot unlocks and the map selection almost straight away.
The rest might take a few hours longer to find out, but we’ll be sure to update this story as soon as we know more.
While Bungie won’t be giving much away about the returning weekly event, they have been talking about other ways they are tweaking the game.
Bungie Day was celebrated this week and the studio has announced a number of new items are available to purchase from the Store.
This includes the new Moments of Triumph T-Shirt, which is available for pre-order through Bungie Rewards, if you have completed the necessary Triumphs.
A message from Bungie adds: “If you are brave enough to complete all five of the featured raids during Season of Arrivals, we are also offering a new Raid Ring for purchase through Bungie Rewards.
“It goes great with one of your many raid jackets to further showcase your PvE prowess to jealous clan mates or certain community managers.
“For the truly committed, a new Seal and the “MMXX” title will be available for completing all 28 Triumphs, including some Triumphs that will go live during Solstice of Heroes in August.
“These must be completed during Season of Arrivals, but you can continue to show off your exclusive title in future Seasons as proof of your dedication.”
Back to what is happening today and the development team will be releasing the 3v3 Crucible playlist at around 6pm GMT on July 10, and returning players will want to visit Saint-14 soon after, who will be located in the Tower Hangar.
The Osiris reset offers a new inventory of Trials Passages, Bounties, and the option to turn in Trials Tokens.
A different map and a fresh set of rewards will be available to Guardians today if they meet the requirements of the 960 Power rating needed to buy Passages.
As ever, Trials fans will earn exclusive rewards by defeating other teams of three, while hoping to gain entry to the Lighthouse.
It should be noted that Mods now drop through a white item bauble instead of an erroneously assigned Exotic Engram bauble, and duplicate mods will no longer drop from the Flawless chest.
Additional Masterwork material rewards now drop at three, five, and seven Trials wins, and Trials Tokens distribution has been re-balanced to focus on wins three, five, and seven of a Trials Passage.
As always, there are five unique Passages that can be bought from Saint-14 which offer their own mechanics.
Each Passage will track wins and losses in a single Trials run. If three losses appear on a Passage, players will be restricted from the activity and have to either reset the Passage or purchase a new one.
