After the several leaks and data-mined clues, Trials of Osiris makes its triumphant return to Destiny 2.
Coming March 13 after the start of Season of the Worthy, the highly-requested pinnacle PvP mode returns to Destiny 2 after an elongated absence. Announced during a Destiny 2 livestream on Tuesday, the infamous endgame activity returns for Guardians to test their mettle.
Thanks to the work of Guardians contributing Polarized Fractaline to the Empyrean Foundation event, players finally reached the stage 7 threshold needed to complete the event. After achieving the triumph, players received an in-game cutscene igniting the Lighthouse, signaling the return of Trials.
Trials of Osiris in the original Destiny was a highly competitive endgame activity on the weekends, where fireteams competed in the Crucible against the best of the best Guardians. Level advantages are enabled, so Guardians with the best loot and the highest power level had the advantage. The goal was to see how far a fireteam could go before incurring three losses, which would then kick them out of the Trials session until they purchased another Trials Passage. Players who won nine games in a row without losing achieved Flawless Victory, gaining them access to the Lighthouse, an exclusive hub area only for the best Trials competitors.
Along with the returning activity, maps from the first Destiny will also return in rotation for Trials: Cauldron, Exodus Blue, and Anomaly. Some of the original armor sets and weapons from Trials have been included and updated in Destiny 2 as well, even featuring status indicators telling surrounding Guardians that these players had a Flawless run in Trials this week.
Trials of Osiris comes to Destiny 2 on March 13, 2020 after the start of Destiny 2‘s Season of the Worthy on March 10.
