Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Returns Later This Month Following Delay
Launching last month, Destiny 2’s latest Beyond Light expansion has offered fans new means to gather some more of that sweet, sweet loot, with a full roadmap of raids and other events centered around the darkness of Europa. Initially, the hype-worthy arrival was also meant to precede a new edition of Trials of Osiris, but the competitive PvP mode was repeatedly delayed following the discovery of multiple game-breaking exploits, with the most recent delay taking hold just before the mode’s awaited return last week.
Several days after the problem arose, developer Bungie has assured players that Trials of Osiris is now scheduled to come back later this month, with a tentative return date slated for December 18th. While it’s not completely clear what the exploit was, the fact that it stopped the fan-favorite mode in its tracks suggests the exploit was substantial enough to impact players’ overall enjoyment. As Trials of Osiris is all about using skill to stack as many wins as possible, postponing and patching was likely the only option to ensure the playing field wasn’t abused.
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

While it won’t be too much longer for Trials of Osiris’ comeback, Destiny 2 looks to have quite a bit planned in the meantime. In addition to the ongoing Season of the Hunt festivities, the game is also set to get a next-gen update, introducing 4K, 60 FPS, and a myriad of other upgrades to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X on December 8th. Bungie is also currently in the midst of its annual Game2Give charity fundraiser, touting a goal to raise $2 million USD for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals from now until December 13th.
