Destiny 2 developer Bungie has officially launched the Trials of Osiris, which have returned from the original Destiny game. The Trials of Osiris are a high-stakes competitive player-versus-player game mode where two teams of three go up against each other. The mod is a modified version of the Elimination game type; players can revive dead teammates, but there is no respawning. If everyone on your team dies, the round is lost. You need to win five rounds to win a match. To play the Trials of Osiris, you must have a power level of 960 or above and you need to have spoken to Saint-14 in The Tower about the mode. It's also important to note that the Trials of Osiris are only available on the weekend, but according to Bungie, the mode will remain in the game indefinitely.
In the Trials of Osiris, players will recieve a special ticket that tracks their wins and losses each weekend. If a player wins seven games, they'll recieve a large amount of unique Trials of Osiris loot that has a high power level. However, if they lose three matches, they can no longer participate in the Trials until they reset their Trials ticket. If you're eliminated from Trials before you reach seven wins, you still get loot. It just won't be as much as you would get if you were to get seven full wins. Additionally, players who win seven straight matches and don't lose a game will go Flawless for that weekend and will get to go to the Lighthouse area. There, players will recieve even more rewards and their Trials loot will gain some special lighting effects that they can show off until the next weekend of Trials.
