Destiny app reveals PvP modes, suggests more Halo-inspired multiplayer playlists

7 July 2014

A screenshot, apparently from the Android and iOS companion app for Bungie’s Destiny, reveals what could be a complete list of PvP modes available when the first-person shooter launches in September.

An image of the app was posted by Reddit user Neon Dr, revealing five PvP modes.

Most of the game modes listed seem self-explanatory, especially if you take a look at some of the playlists that Bungie created for the Halo franchise.

Skirmish - Likely to be the playlist that consists of objective-based team modes, which could possibly include variants of Halo’s Big Team Battles, Capture The Flag modes and others.

Control – this mode was available in the Alpha phase, and sees both teams attempting to capture various bases.

Lockdown - could see players attempting to defend a base against the clock while the other teams assaults?

Team – could be the team deathmatches playlist?

Rumble mode - could be a variation of Halo’s rumble pit playlist which consists of free-for-all matches with games like King of the Hill, Juggernaut and Headhunter?

If you have any ideas what these playlists could represent, let us know in the comments below.

Destiny is due for launch on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 9, 2014. Check out our most recent hands-on impressions of Destiny from the Alpha phase.
