Destiny Mode: A first for the series where your ultimate goal is to become the commander of an entire army. You must rise through the ranks as you develop your fighting, strategy and leadership abilities.

Legend Mode: 18 all new maps with historical and fictional scenarios and as you clear each scenario you will learn more about the relationship between the characters.
