Destiny 2’s new Gambit mode combines PvP, PvE

Yes, please.

Destiny 2‘s new Gambit mode will shake things up in the upcoming Forsaken expansion, combining PvP and PvE gameplay.

“This all-new hybrid 4v4 mode combines the best of PvE and PvP,” Bungie said of the new mode. “Two teams of four race to summon a Primeval enemy and be the first to burn it down. Disrupt the other team by sending a combatant blocker or invading directly with one of your own players.”

In the mode, you’re tasked to do three things: Fight, collect and bank.

Players will be tasked to fight off both the enemy team and baddie NPCs — the latter of which get stronger as the match progresses. As enemies are dispatched, they’ll drop motes that Guardians will be tasked to collect (like in Supremacy); players can hold up to 15 motes at one time, but will lose each one if killed.

Players can bank motes in a central structure, earning a blocker when banking 5, 10 or 15 motes at once. At 25 and 50 motes, you can send one teammate through a portal to invade the enemy’s base. At 75 motes, you can summon a Primeval, or boss character, that you need to ultimately defeat to beat the enemy team.

We’re hoping to get our hands on Gambit next week at E3 2018 — stay tuned.

Destiny 2 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. The Forsaken expansion — and Gambit — will be available from 4 September.
