Bungie has a very love / hate relationship with Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris, as does the playerbase itself. Earlier this month, the highly competitive PvP mode was turned off when win-trading has been discovered, only to have it restored and removed once more. Now it’s back, confirms the studio, but for how long?
In the latest Destiny 2 blog update, a plethora of fixes and updates have been revealed. The tests having been deleted once more earlier this week, the Guardians wondered if he would return to the game in time for the PvP reset. At the moment, it looks like everything is green in all areas.
“Last Saturday it was discovered that a match re-entry issue in the Trials of Osiris playlist that we thought we resolved earlier in the week did not resolve the issue,” the studio explained. “With Update 3.1.1, this issue should no longer occur. Therefore, testing is scheduled to begin on time this week.”
So what is the love / hate relationship about? The biggest problem that Trials of Osiris faces, from the community side, is that it is full of cheaters. This is especially true for PC gamers. That, and many believe that Bungie hasn’t been the most consistent in terms of messages regarding the purpose of this PvP instance. A common feeling among the Guardians is that in an effort to increase the number of players for the Trials, Bungie is changing the experience in an effort to attract new players. The problem with this, however, is that this Pinnacle PvP activity is difficult. Not “Oh, that’s a tough challenge”, but difficult. It’s supposed to be, it’s the point, but the reels have been disappointing and many feel the rewards don’t match the overall experience. That, and the new players who are attracted? It doesn’t take long before they are shattered into small pieces.
It will be interesting to see if Trials of Osiris makes it through the weekend. Who knows? Maybe now is the time for the PvP mode to shine. I doubt it, but we can dream.
As for the sequel, Bungie described a few known issues that they are plans to tackle soon. For those curious about future updates, here’s what the team is investigating:
- Previewing Ghost Projections can crash the game if players don’t have a Ghost Shell.
- The fifth feather in the Harbinger mission does not spawn in week three, and the fourth feather does not spawn in week two.
- The Postmaster screen displays an opaque screen when trying to retrieve your missing items. Players can press the Cancel button or the Esc key to remove it.
- Locus of Communion sometimes teleports around the last area of the Presage mission.
- Enabling 3D audio from the PS5 may mute the audio sound of Destiny 2.
- Ultra Combatants’ health bars display in colors that are incompatible with their icons and with other stronger enemy types in several colorblind modes.
- We continue to investigate PC FPS and crashing issues.
- It is intentional that the monkey in the weekly Strike playlist is random, meaning some monkeys may not appear as often as others.
- The Insight Terminus Nightfall Triumph does not count progress.
- Random lines appear on the faces of awake characters where the shadows should be on the PS5.
- Heavy ammo appears under the Distant Shore map.
- Sola’s scar is translated as “solar scar” in Spanish-ES.
- Guardian Games class items no longer honor 2020 placements.
- The Gambit PGCR cannot display the second statistics screen.
- A player’s entire stack of Legendary Shards appear to be added to their account when removing / hammering runes into the Evidence Hammer.
