Anarchy Reigns' match types explained

Anarchy Reigns will have more than 10 match types, each with a significantly different play style so that players don't get bored, according to a developer from Platinum Games.

A Platinum Games designer who goes by the name Paul explained in a recent post to the official Sega blog that the online match types provide variety and even within each match type there are layers of differences.

In one example, Paul explains that one of the match types — the Team Battle — has classes distributed throughout the team which are based on each player's match rank. These classes change at fixed intervals and come in three types, each with varying abilities.

Another match type is Death Ball, which is where two teams are positioned on either side of a sprawling field and are tasked with trying to bring the ball into the opponent's court. "Think rugby," Paul writes, "mixed with a violent slugfest."

A more in-depth description of some of the match types can be found on the Sega blog.

Anarchy Reigns will release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on Jan. 8, 2013 and in Europe on Jan. 11, 2013.
