Each Rift is made up of chapters, comprised of various nodes that consist of battles and challenges. Each node contains unique mutators for different combat scenarios. By completing node objectives and winning matches, players will be able to earn rewards, gems, and more to raise stats and impart special effects.

WB Games also confirmed that there will be ongoing content updates for Rifts mode to keep things fresh. Additionally, Rifts mode will feature a way for players to learn mechanics, test characters, and sharpen their skills, whether it’s playing solo or cooperatively online with a friend.
