Only a few days ago Riot Games has revealed an upcoming game mode called ‘Replication’. The highly anticipated game mode will reportedly let players on each team lock in on the same agent.
The Replication mode that’s set to temporarily replace Escalation will feature similar mechanics like the ‘One for All mode’ in Riot’s popular MOBA League of Legends. Players on the same team will be able to vote for an agent to lock in on. The agent receiving the maximum votes will be automatically picked by the entire team.
Needless to say, this mode can potentially have an overwhelming room for creativity. Players can easily turn the tides of a battle with five Sage ultimates or smoke out entire bombsites with a chain of Brimstone smokes.
“With Replication, we are looking to create exciting and novel moments by widening the player theory-crafting space while highlighting Agent abilities,” Game Designer Kyle Powell said. “Quintupling down on Agents that were balanced around normal Agent restrictions, we’ve created lots of hilarious near game-breaking plays for players to discover.”
Players will receive the same amount of XP in this upcoming game mode as they do in unrated.
The release date of the Replication game mode hasn’t been revealed by Riot as of yet, but it’s expected to land alongside Patch 2.09 which’s likely to be released tomorrow.
