'Destiny' Trials Of Osiris Gameplay Video: Watch Our First Runs Through The New Competitive Crucible Mode
Destiny's Trials of Osiris mode became available today for the first time, challenging Guardians to fight through the toughest Crucible matches yet. I jumped into the mode earlier, and recorded some matches you can watch below.
The Trials of Osiris, accessible to those who own the new House of Wolves expansion, encourages you to enter with a well-oiled Fireteam--simply playing the mode with anyone won't be a recipe for success. The rewards are handed out for how well you do: when you buy entry into the mode, you can play until you win nine matches or lose three games.
The rewards at Brother Vance in the Vestian Outpost are accessible depending on the number of wins you manage to compile. Win just two and you can buy the Stone Tier reward package. The rewards go up to the Gold Tier package, available if you manage to win all nine matches, with other packages and some gear awarded at three, five, six, and seven wins.
The video opens with a complete trouncing by the other team, with an especially embarrassing start (one player in particular dominated us for most of that match). I unfortunately started recording after our first match, which we won in dramatic fashion, but the matches that come after the first in the video are much closer and we pick up some wins. Our Fireteam (which was hastily put together and was not too coordinated) finished the event with three losses and three wins. That afforded us an okay haul from Brother Vance, with some Motes of Light and more Passage Coins to make our next attempts in the Trials easier. Enjoy the video below, and excuse a handful of poor plays!
