Destiny 2 UPDATE – Trials of the Nine countdown, Iron Banner latest, first secret quest | Gaming | Entertainment

Destiny 2 players are getting ready for the latest Trials of the Nine refresh after Iron Banner launched on PS4 and Xbox One this week.

However, the mode and map for Trials of the Nine remains a mystery as Bungie have not released a Destiny 2 schedule for October.

The Destiny 2 developer had previously released a roadmap for the online shooter, but that only covered month one.

So, anything past week four in Destiny 2 is a mystery for players, with a number of big additions on the horizon.

There is plenty of speculation among Guardians about what’s next in store for them – with talk of the first secret quest taking place soon.

Express.co.uk has rounded up all we know so far about what’s happening with Destiny 2 this week and the October schedule.

WHEN IS DESTINY 2 TRIALS OF THE NINE GETTING A REFRESH?

On Friday Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine will get updated, with a new mode and map.

Replacing the Trials of Osiris end-game event, Trials of the Nine is the go-to Destiny 2 game mode for fans of PvP Crucible action.

Trials of the Nine gets updated in Destiny 2 every week at 10am PT / 6pm BST on Friday. 

DESTINY 2 WEEK 6 – TRIALS OF THE NINE MODE AND MAP

For the first four weeks of Destiny 2, we knew exactly what map and mode we’d be playing thanks to the Destiny 2 Month One roadmap.

However, everything past that is now a mystery.

Last week the mode and map in Destiny 2 Trials of the Nine was as follows:

Mode: Survival

Map: European Dead Zone Map, The Dead Cliffs

Seeing as last week was Survival, this week it could switch back to Countdown.

One map that we could see a return of is Altar of Flame.

In week three of Destiny 2 Altar of Flame was meant to be the map for Trials of the Nine.

However, this was swapped out after around two hours due to an exploit.

If you go back to week three though, you may get an idea of what we could be playing tomorrow.

It was changed to Countdown on Eternity.

So it’s possible Altar of Flame may make a return, with the exploit that players were taking an advantage of hopefully now fixed.

DESTINY 2 – TRIALS OF THE NINE REQUIREMENTS

If you want to take part in Trials of the Nine, there are a number of requirements you have to fulfil.

These are as follows:

• Players must complete the Destiny 2 campaign

• Players must complete the the Call to Arms Milestone at least once

• Players must have 260 Power

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING IN DESTINY 2? WHAT IS IN THE OCTOBER SCHEDULE?

Friday, as per usual, will also see Xur return with a selection of exotics.

However, anything else happening on Friday – or this week in general – remains a mystery.

It’s rumoured that Destiny 2 fans could see the first secret quest revealed this month.

Fans believe the secret area during the 1AU mission in the main campaign will unlock for the special quest soon. 

It had been expected that the secret room could have unlocked on October 7, as the seventh is a date that has long been favoured by Bungie.

However, that came and past with no reveal – so there is still hope the secret quest may become available this week.

DESTINY 2 IRON BANNER LATEST

Iron Banner launched in Destiny 2 on Tuesday, and fans have already discovered a great Easter Egg.

Destiny 2 players have uncovered an Overwatch secret hidden within the Iron Banner event.

Accessible only by the best players, Lord Saladin references Overwatch character Reaper when players manage a 20-person kill streak.
