Bungie has been working hard to fix Destiny 2 and to improve the options and features for gamers. One of the updates includes a return of the Trials of the Nine, which was disabled recently after an exploit in the Crucible was discovered involving one of the emotes. The event is now scheduled to go live on November 3rd.
According to the Bungie recap for the week, the developers revealed that the Crucible's Trials of the Nine would be making a return on November 3rd, 2017.
Initially, the Trials of the Nine was supposed to go live last week, but Bungie discovered a bug with the emote that could allow for exploitation. The team then had to pull the event and investigate how the emote was being exploited, so last week's and this week's Trials of the Nine won't be taking place.
Gamers will, however, be able to get in on the action with the next Trials of the Nine starting November 3rd. While it's an extra week of waiting, it's better that way than to have to deal with a lot of Crucible matches in Destiny 2 ending unfairly due to someone exploiting the game from top to bottom.
The return of the Trials of the Nine is also coming at a time when Bungie has been working on getting out the Prestige Raid for Leviathan. The initial Raid was pretty hefty and forced a lot of gamers to have to utilize a lot of different kinds of tactics and teamwork to beat it, but the Prestige version turned out to be even more difficult.
All of this is happening during a time when the PC version of Destiny 2 is prepping for launch on Tuesday. The PC version will also arrive with the Nightfall Normal Mode, Nightfall Prestige Mode, and the Nightfall Guided Games.
Later on next week there will be the introduction of the Raid for the PC version starting on Wednesday, followed by the Trials of the Nine being made available not just for PC gamers but also Xbox One and PS4 gamers as well.
For week three, Bungie will give Destiny 2 players on PC their first taste of the Prestige Raid, along with the Raid Guided Games that following Tuesday.
One of the things that Bungie also is doing is being completely transparent with what gamers can expect from the PC version of Destiny 2, including some of the bugs that may need to be addressed on day one when it goes live via the Battle.net client.
Some of the issues include errors during launch, some triple-monitor bugs when changing the resolution, and some title screen idling issues when it comes time to log back into the game.
There are also some known issues with enabling SLI, HDR and Vsync, so keep that in mind if you're planning on playing the PC version of Destiny 2.
Otherwise, console gamers can continue to play to their heart's content, but will have to wait (along with PC gamers) until next week on November 3rd to finally play the Trials of the Nine in the Crucible.
