The Trials of Osiris multiplayer mode definitely showed people how tense Destiny can be, if they weren’t already aware. However, the primary drawback is a lack of matchmaking, which forces people to enter as friends.
Luckily, this has been acknowledged with the introduction of a proper elimination style playlist complete with matchmaking in a pvp (player versus player) arena. This allows everyone the same level of enjoyment, even without the House of Wolves expansion.
As indicated by Bungie’s website, it seems as though Elimination will feature two teams consisting of three players each, fit with only one life. The two teams will see who can eliminate the other in a best of nine rounds scenario.
Unfortunately, it appears as though the rewards will not match those seen in Trials of Osiris, instead, giving the players loot as seen in typical Crucible playlists. Level advantages will be disabled and Elimination will cycle throughout all Crucible maps.
In addition to this, with Destiny’s next expansion, The Taken King, supposedly leaking out with information stating its launch will be within a September window, Destiny fans have a lot to look forward to. The Taken King will feature a new raid, new strikers, and a new subclass for each Guardian.
