Destiny 2 Freelance Trials: Bungie has stated that it is listening to player input about the freelancing mode in Trials of Osiris and takes it seriously, especially calls to make the mode permanent.
This next weekend, Bungie will make the highly competitive Trials of Osiris mode accessible in Freelance for Destiny 2, and it appears that the developer is contemplating making it a permanent addition to the multiplayer game mode. For the time being, Freelance is only made available on a random basis. This gives lone players the opportunity to participate in the tournament and compete for some of Destiny 2’s most desirable clothing items.
The first Freelance Trials of Osiris of the new Season of the Haunted will take place from June 24-26, and according to the most recent episode of This Week at Bungie, it is an opportunity for anybody who is interested in the 3v3 format to drop in and check out how things are going. In the game Trials of Osiris, there is a competition called Elimination that matches two teams of three players against each other. The goal of this variation is to eliminate all members of the other team. The first team to reach five points wins the match, and the objective is to “go faultless” by compiling nine consecutive victories on your scorecard. The winner of the match is the side that reaches five points first.
In the normal course of events, Trials of Osiris necessitates that teams be pre-formed; in order to participate, your fireteam needs two extra members. Matchmaking is available when you participate in Trials as a Freelancer. Destiny 2 will search for other players to join your squad in order to complete it.
Benjy, the leader of the Last Rites Destiny 2 clan, responded on Twitter to Bungie’s tweet promoting the most recent post in the This Week at Bungie series by requesting “permanent Freelance please and thank you.” Benjy’s tweet was in response to Bungie’s tweet promoting the latest installment in the This Week at Bungie series.
The response from Bungie was, “We hear you on that.” The staff has been made aware of all of your comments and suggestions about Freelance, including this particular one.
The inclusion of a permanent Freelance queue to the Trials of Osiris is certainly something that is being actively discussed inside Bungie, thus it is reasonable to conclude that this is the case. Although this would encourage more players to participate in Trials each weekend, some players are concerned that it may reduce the number of players that participate in conventional Trials. This is because many players may view matchmade Trials as an easier method to get a perfect record.
