The next season of Destiny 2 is titled Season of the Worthy and it will include Trials of Osiris. This latest news comes from a surprise stream from Bungie, the creators of the Destiny franchise. Guardians can watch the announcement in a special dev video featured below.

Destiny 2: Season of the Worthy brings back Trials of Osiris

Destiny 2 players have finally managed to donate all 9,777,777,700 Polarized Fractaline to the Empyrean Foundation, which has led to the follow tweet from the official Destiny Twitter account:

The link in question takes places to the above video announcing Destiny 2: Season of the Worthy and the eagerly-anticipated Trials of Osiris. This special game mode was removed from Destiny 2 shortly after its release where it was originally called Trials of the Nine. Interestingly, Trials of Osiris is actually the name of the mode from the original Destiny which was included with the House of Wolves update in May of 2015.

The short announcement video revealed a lot of exciting information about Trials of Osiris. Firstly, three classic maps from the original Destiny will be returning: Cauldron, Exodus Blue, and Anomaly. Players that spent any amount of time playing Trials will immediately remember the various lanes and strategies employed on these locations. How these will play with Destiny 2’s new movement speed and abilities is bound to offer players new challenges.

Players can earn a full set of original armor by playing Trials of Osiris. Those that go flawless will have the armor glow!

Also returning is the original Trials of Osiris armor set. Get ready for some delightfully Egyptian-themed goodness. Players that also manage to go flawless – achieving multiple victories with no defeats – will have their armor evolve, glowing and flaunting the fact the player has achieved something great.

Destiny 2: Season of the Worthy is set to release on March 10 – and given the track record of the previous modes – Trials of Osiris is likely to be available that weekend.

      One would need to pay $10 for the season pass to get access?

        I would expect it to be f2p, but since power-level is enabled anyone owning the current season pass is going to be at a severe disadvantage.

        Alongside nerfs to everyone's favorite weapons, because rather than build more interesting fight mechanics and weapons, just shit on the ones people use to push them to other weapons.

          i wish the developer trend was to buff bad guns instead of nerfing good guns. i think back with sorrow on the original versions of the wingman and peacekeeper in apex, now all the guns are weak and dissatisfying.

          i understand in a game like destiny it's difficult because there are so many weapons, and they maintain consistency between PVE and PVP - but then again they made their bed.

            My frustration is that the items they're nerfing aren't particularly overpowered. They're just *overused*. And Bungie seems to want to encourage the use of other guns, so they ruin the ones people love in some misguided attempt to shift people over.

              i'm sure you'll be pleased to know that they're planning to cap infusion on legendary weapons so that they're only viable for a few seasons worth of pinnacle activities

                Honestly, if this limitation turned in to creating new guns to replace what you can't anymore, then I'm all for it.

                  The specific example he used was VoG weapons being memorable since they wouldn't be relevant to NF, Raids, Trials forever because D1Y1 legendary weapons were capped at what eventually became 170(?) Light/Power.

          Every nerf they me ruined for pvp is 100% needed. The sniper nerf in pve hurts but fuck cheesy busted shit in pvp.

            Stupid phone, that should say every nerf they mentioned for pvp

            i don't disagree, but as a non-PVP player (when i played), i was always a bit salty about their refusal to bifurcate the gun behaviour. my own personal (unfounded) theory is that it presents a huge technical hurdle they're not willing to overcome as opposed to a design decision - similarly to why i think they don't release more fresh content.

              oh i 100% wish there was separate pvp and pve sandbox tuning done, and they have shown it's possible for them to do with certain changes but in general they want things to feel the same between pve and pvp in respects to how the guns work / feel.

        How much do you want to bet that they won't even be ornaments either.

          Honestly, they shouldn't be. They should drop w perks relevant to trials / elim and with 60+ stats guaranteed since it's end game.
