With a new game comes new events, and it seems like the Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine mode will be part of that and might even be replacing Trials of Osiris, though we don’t know for sure since the game’s only been out for two days on its console platforms.
Originally, the Trials of the Nine mode was datamined from leaked voice lines back during the PC beta, though even now that the game has been released we still know nothing about what all it’s actually going to involve. The datamine has suggested that it may be something that swaps between the Countdown and Survival gametypes that were part of the betas, or it could mix the two into a gametype called “Judgement.”
For now, however, what ever the Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine mode involves, players will just have to wait and see what Bungie does with it. With the apparent end of the Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner multiplayer events that became weekly and monthly staples of the original Destiny, Destiny is either going to have to re-make those two events or replace them with others that fill the same niche.
Whatever Bungie decides to do on those events, so far Destiny fans seem happy with Destiny 2, even though there’s something of a controversy that shaders, which allow players to re-color their armor a certain way, are now one-use consumables, rather than the multi-use items that players could use at will.
So far, however, it appears that that is the only real criticism people have over Destiny 2, at least until the release hype wears off and the game settles down more.
We’ll be on the lookout for more information about the Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine mode in the meantime, but for now you can pick up Destiny 2 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4. The PC version will be coming out October 24.
