Trials of Osiris will be very different this week as Bungie has revealed its plans to experiment further with the PvP mainstay.

According to a new post from the development team, Destiny 2 will see the return of the Trials today, but they will have different rules and outcomes.

The good news is that it will remain an elimination mode, which should make it easy for Guardians to rank up and unlock the best loot.

And like previous months, the Trials of Osiris start time has been scheduled for 6pm BST on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

However, the rules of previous weeks have been changed yet again, with this week’s experimental mode called – Trials Labs: Capture Zone.

These will be the new rules that will be running in Trials of Osiris until September 28:

  • 30 seconds after the round starts, a capture zone is enabled. Players can capture this zone to win the round – or just eliminate the other team like normal.
  • The capture zone has a waypoint from round start, including a countdown timer, so everyone will know exactly when and where it will be.
  • The capture zone starts in the middle of the map in the first round and changes location each round.
  • The team who just lost gets the advantaged spawn location.

Also for this week, double Trials rank points for every match! If you are feeling the blues of Fabled and Mythic, this is a great week to reset.

Bungie has also confirmed that they will be keeping the Flawless matchmaking pool from last weekend, but there will be changes here as well.

The Destiny support team will wait until the Sunday morning reset(10:00 AM PT) to enable the flawless pool.

The reason behind this is as follows, with Bungie telling fans today: “This serves as a middle ground between Week 1 and Week 2, and as the semi-permanent placement for enabling the flawless pool. As always, we will be looking at both analytics and feedback – so keep telling us what is working and what isn’t! 

“We are working on some deeper matchmaking solutions which we hope lets us remove the flawless pool. Look out for more info in mid/late October.

“We are turning off matchmaking help until you have played at least two matches during the weekend.”

It should also be noted that today’s Trials launch will be the last for a little while as Bungie plans to remove the PvP activity when there are others available.

And with the Iron Banner set to return next week, the Trials of Osiris will not be back until October 8, 2021.

This will be another experimental weekend for the PvP mode, meaning there could be another round of big changes announced before everything kicks off next month.

Bungie’s new seven-win challenge will be available from Saint-14, providing Adept Flawless loot.

Reputation gain per match has been scaled by the number of round wins on a ticket, and Trials passages are now account scoped

The standout Flawless Reward last week was Shayura’s Wrath Adept SMG, which is not expected to be replaced by something new today.
