Bungie has released a new trailer for Destiny 2‘s Trials of the Nine PvP event ahead of it kicking off later today at 10 a.m. PT.

“The Raid is not the final test that we have to reveal,” the developer teased. “Destiny 2 still has new plateaus for you to scale. Bring a Fireteam and your spirit of competition. You have a new ritual to learn.”

It’s unclear if Trials of the Nine will be exactly the same as its previous incarnation Trials of Osiris, but we do know of one major change that will see the number of players per team increased from three to four. The original Destiny’s Trials of Osiris event required players to take part in nine PvP matches set on a single map, with the aim being to pick up nine wins.

Bungie also announced that it has made a small change to Competitive matchmaking to put players in fairer matches and prevent massive mismatches.

“According to the finer minds on our team, the Competitive playlist needs some love. Too many players are getting stomped by opponents who grossly outmatch them. In order to match you properly with an opponent in your league, we need to apply your skill rating. There is a bug we need to fix to ensure that this is done properly. We are applying that fix right now.

Destiny 2 is available now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a PC release to follow on October 24th.
