It’s a trial of our patience

Destiny 2 - three Guardians on Crucible map Legion’s Gulch Bungie/Activision

A pesky Destiny 2 glitch has led developer Bungie to cancel the next two instances of Trials of the Nine, the game’s weekly Crucible event, the studio announced yesterday.

Trials of the Nine would ordinarily be live right now — it runs from 1 p.m. ET on Fridays until the weekly reset at 5 a.m. ET on Tuesdays. But Bungie has decided to cancel Trials for this week and next week; it is scheduled to return Friday, Nov. 3.

The decision comes after “reported incidents of emote glitching in the Crucible,” the studio said. Bungie is investigating a fix for the issue, and plans to push it live during the first week of November. While the company did not provide further details on the issue, the emote in question is almost certainly Bureaucratic Walk, a Monty Python-inspired animation that players have been using to glitch through walls. (You can see how this might present some problems in Trials, an intense, high-stakes player-versus-player mode.)

When Trials returns on Nov. 3, it will also go live in the Windows PC version of Destiny 2, which launches next Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 10 a.m. PT worldwide. Bungie provided some details on how it will roll out special activities for the PC version — you can check out the schedule in the image below.

Most notably, both the standard and Prestige versions of the Nightfall strike will be available on launch day, while the Leviathan raid will go live eight days later on Wednesday, Nov. 1. The following week, on Tuesday, Nov. 7, Bungie will release the Prestige version of the raid.

In the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the Leviathan raid, Bungie will roll out challenges starting Tuesday, Oct. 31. One optional objective will be attached to a different encounter each week, and completing it will give you a unique emblem and a guaranteed raid drop.
