Destiny developer Bungie is launching its new shooter alongside a companion app, and it appears that an image of the app has revealed the game’s list of PvP modes.

The image above was posted on Reddit by NeonDr, and shows Control, Skirmish, Lockdown, Team and Rumble modes.

We already know that Control is an objective-based game mode similar to Call of Duty’s Domination, which sees two teams fighter over three points on each map, with heavy weapon drops falling into the environment at regular intervals. There are also vehicles on bigger maps.

In fact, I played Destiny as part of the PS4 alpha and explained how it felt to play in my write-up.

The same goes for Team mode, which is straight-up team deathmatch. I played this mode on a map set within the Old Russia Cosmodrome area, and found it to be quite enjoyable. Those Titan slam attacks need nerfed though.

More mysterious is the appearance of Skirmish mode, which has yet to be revealed. We’ve no idea what it involves, along with Lockdown and Rumble.

Words has it that Rumble is a fancy term for free-for-all mode, but treat that as rumour for now. The same source theorises that there’s a final game mode called Salvage that is essentially capture the flag.

What do you think of the list above?
