Destiny 2’s Season of Dawn is starting to wind down. It has felt like it has gone on forever but there are only a few things left on the roadmap (that we know of at least). We’re currently knee-deep in the process of donating to the Empyrean Foundation and also on top of that we’ll get a short Tower event with Crimson Days and that will just about wrap things up before Season 10, currently rumored to be Season of the Worthy, which begins on March 10.
Until Bungie does a reveal stream, your guess is as good as ours as there are only small bits of confirmed information out there. But the thought of Trials returning has hardcore PvP and Destiny 2 fans, in general, caught up in a frenzy of anticipation of what’s coming next for Season 10.
So until Bungie tells us what’s going on, why don’t we run down what we know so far about “Season of the Worthy” and put together all the facts we could find and mix it with some educated guesses on our part.
If you don’t like spoilers or want to wait until the official reveal, this is your warning to leave.
Season of the Worthy & Trials of Osiris Leak
The datamined “leak” of Season 10 and what we believe to be called Season of the Worthy (based on that leak) is the biggest source of juicy information right now about what’s to come in Destiny 2 after Season of Dawn.
Players last week started accidentally receiving mission screens for a “Worthy” mission that tasked players with rekindling The Lighthouse on Mercury to usher in a new age of Guardians.
Obviously that language heavily hints towards the return of Trials of Osiris, and when combined with the Osiris flags in the Hangar, the addition of Elimination into the Crucible playlist, the trials cards, and placeholders that some players experienced, hardcore PvP fans have a lot of reasons to be excited.
If Trials of Osiris doesn’t come back for next season then this entire process would just end up being a very cruel tease. To Bungie’s credit though, they have been trying to keep Trials as guarded and close to the chest as possible, they just aren’t doing a very stellar job at hiding their tracks.
I believe the reason that it’s all hush though is because it’s going to be one of the, if not the primary focus of Destiny 2 Season 10, AKA Season of the Worthy, and they want to wait until Season of Dawn has run its course before revealing that bombshell.
Paul Tassi of Forbes and many Destiny 2 fans have speculated that the Empyrean Foundation community event is all about rebuilding The Lighthouse and kicking off Trials of Osiris, and that appears to be the direction that things are heading.
Combine all of the above with the whole season of gathering feedback on the Elimination game mode and the increased commitment to cracking down on cheating (a major problem with Trials in the past), it would be a major shock of Trials of Osiris wasn’t back in time for Season 10.
Hopefully, it will come with an overhaul to the Crucible’s reward structure in general.
