MLG to Host Destiny Exhibition Featuring New Game Mode, Competitive Players
After Bungie announced that private matches were finally coming to Destiny with its newest expansion, Rise of Iron on Sept. 20, the wheels of competition began to turn. It's apparent that the game has esports potential and Major League Gaming seems to agree.
Today, Bungie announced on their weekly blog update that there will be a live-streamed exhibition of the game's new PvP mode, "Supremacy" featuring some of the top names in Destiny's Twitch directory as well as its burgeoning competitive community. The event will be hosted by MLG's Chris Puckett and Ben "Benson" Bowe, Destiny community member Michael "MTashed" Tash and Bungie Crucible developers Lars Bakken and Derek Carroll.
The 6v6 game mode is different than most of what the competitive community is used to, as most "sweaties" are played in 3v3 format. But the "Supremacy" game mode is new, and with private matches, any number of team variations can be used from one player up to six.
Here's a look at the teams competing:
