Bungie unveils extensive Destiny 2 upgrades in a blog post, highlighting what we can expect to continue playing inside the Crucible.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light is very close, which means a lot of existing stuff will be left behind. Alongside many other upgrades, Bungie has announced that it’s going to trim down the Crucible experience, too, so there are some Crucible modes that you have to try.
Hurry up and discover the Crucible modes worth playing. Here is what you need to know.
Crucible Modes Features and Other Details
In the recent This Week at Bungie article, the game studio revealed extensive lists showing what we can expect to play in PvP after November 10. The decision came after the developers believed it is better to focus on the most praised game types and bring the player community together.
The Crucible game modes that will end up in the Destiny Content Vault are:
- Breakthrough (Weekly 4v4 Rotator);
- Countdown (Weekly 4v4 Rotator);
- Doubles (Crimson Days, 2v2);
- Lockdown (Weekly 4v4 Rotator);
- Momentum Control (Weekly, 6v6 Rotator);
- Scorched (Weekly, 6v6 Rotator);
- Supremacy (Classic Mix Playlist, 6v6).
Most of these modes concern the rotating playlists, the two upper nodes in the Crucible directory. Weekly, one node comes with a 4v4 mode while the other features a 6v6 one. The 4×4 modes are all removed, which probably indicates that the rotating playlists will be upgraded. If you want to experience the modes mentioned above, keep your eyes on the weekly rotating playlists.
However, these modes won’t be removed permanently, but they’ll no longer be in Destiny 2. It is important to note that Scorched and Momentum Control will return at some point in year 4. It is unknown when that will happen, but we should take advantage of the Momentum Control mode as much as possible.
Furthermore, Bungie said that these changes would decrease matchmaking times and help offer a better connection. While all this stuff sounds so good, we hope that the content exodus will remedy Destiny 2’s load times, too, especially on consoles.
Destiny 2 is available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
