Destiny's Game Modes Revealed

Thanks to a new video by MoreConsole, we now have a much better picture of what to expect from Bungie’s juggernaut title, Destiny.

The Director, Destiny’s in-game navigation system will guide you through making your game mode choices.  Due to the video, we now have good idea of what type of game Bungie is going to allow us to play.

Patrol is the first mode, which consists of open-ended free roam missions for players who simply wish to explore Destiny’s numerous environments.  Patrol is completely undirected and gamers can do as little or as much as they would like.   This mode really leaves choice into the hands of the player.

Bounty resembles a traditional massively multiplayer online game’s “raid” mode.  Successful raids can earn rewards such as weapons, armor, and other items.  Bounty will most certainly be a mode that requires a handful of players at once.

Strike is a cooperative mode designed with a solid structure for those looking to play a quick game.  These games are designed to be played with three person fireteams, and will typically take 15-30 minutes to complete.

While Faction Wars is the mode that will allow gamers to challenge other factions in a competitive multiplayer setting, Destiny will require a “couple of hours” worth of gameplay prior to unlocking multiplayer.

Check out the video for more information.
