Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris won’t be the only big PvP event being hosted by Bungie this in the coming days on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Iron Banner is returning but not before Trials of Osiris has run its course and provided plenty of new loot and rewards for Guardians. Trials of Osiris will be unlocking in the coming hours and running until the weekly reset on Tuesday, August 4.
That’s when the Iron Banner will be returning and will run for the next week, crossing over with the new Trials event.
The popular crucible playlist will be launching at the same time across PS4, Xbox One and PC, meaning there should be plenty of Guardians taking part.
Trials of Osiris will be launching at 6 pm in the UK on July 31, and gamers won’t know the map selection until they drop in.
The latest map selection was Javelin 4 so fans can probably expect a familiar map selection appearing this week too.
While Bungie won’t be sharing any information on what rewards will be available, they will confirm when everything is available to play.
And the first information shared will be from Guardians, who will be confirming the first loot unlocks and the map selection almost straight away.
The rest might take a few hours to find out, but we’ll be sure to update this story as soon as we know more.
Meanwhile, Bungie has revealed more on their plans to bring back the Iron Banner Tournament during August 2020, telling fans:
“Lord Saladin returns to host the second Iron Banner of the Season. Before we get too deep, if you haven’t heard of the Iron Banner, let’s give you a quick lesson.
“First, get your Power up. This activity offers Power-enabled combat in the Crucible, so that means your opponents might have an edge if they’re five (or more) Power above you. Second, snag weekly bounties from Lord Saladin in the Tower before jumping in.
“You can earn some pinnacle power gear when completing their objectives! Third, capture the zones.
“The more zones you hold, the more points you get whenever you defeat an enemy. Fourth, stick with your teammates. While being a lone wolf can be fun, hunting with the pack can yield the best results.
“During Saladin’s last visit, two Legendary weapons made their return with random rolls in tow. The Fool’s Remedy Sidearm and Forward Path Auto Rifle pack a pretty good punch in the Crucible.
“I’ve personally gotten around 400 Guardian defeats with my trusty sidearm; maybe you’ll find a good roll that fits your playstyle.
“And if you’re searching for some enhanced armour mods, or armour pieces with high stat rolls, now’s a great time to jump in for some PvP action. These rewards can drop simply from playing matches, or turning in tokens to Saladin between matches.
“Iron Banner will be available from 10 am on August 4 through 10 am on August 11.”
Today’s Osiris reset offers a new inventory of Trials Passages, Bounties, and the option to turn in Trials Tokens, and a trip to The Lighthouse.
