In case you’re still reeling from the death of Cayde-6 (as seen in today’s new cinematic trailer), there’s some new gameplay footage of the new Gambit mode from Destiny 2: Forsaken.

You can find the gameplay below in its entirety from the perspective of famed Monster Hunter expert Arekkz Gaming.

Destiny 2‘s new PvPvE mode (for those who don’t know what that means you fight the aliens and other players at the same time ) titled “Gambit” pits two teams of four against each other in a race to collect resources from aliens.

Both teams have their own side of the map, which is off-limits to their competitors save for a portal that players can activate to send a member of their team to the other side. When this player invades, they can outright kill members of the opposing team, or just plain harass them, in order to give their team time to extend their lead or stage a comeback.

You can find an awesome example of this at 3:11.

When players collect Motes, they must deposit them into banks in order to add them to their team’s score. Doing so not only moves your team’s bar closer to completion but spawns powerful enemies on your opponent’s side of the map.

Destiny 2: Forsaken launches on September 4 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The Gambit mode will be available for all players to try on September 1, but you’ll need to buy the expansion if you want to be able to play it after that. If you haven’t already, you can pre-order the game here on Amazon.
