Two teams of five players must work together to complete the objective of the match, with one side playing as “Law” and the other side playing as the “Breakers.” Though teams may not play as characters from the opposite side, the chosen Roles have the same equipment and play-style regardless of team.
The current gameplay modes available include:
A modified capture-the-flag mode with one flag planted in the middle of the map in the form of a battery. Teams must race to grab the battery and then take it back to their base, where it must be defended until it reaches 100%, and then a further 20 seconds, to earn a point. However, the battery keeps its charge even if it is stolen, so one team could charge the battery to 99% complete, then the enemy could steal it and take the point after successfully defending the battery at 100% charge. The first team to score three points is the winner.
Similar to Overcharge, except the battery is replaced with a satellite dish. The upload percentage is not linked to the dish itself, but to the team’s progress in defending the uplink.
There are three capture points spread out between each team’s side and the center of the map. Each team must clear and hold as many points as possible until the maximum score is reached. Once all three points on a map have been locked down, the number of points captured by each team is added to their total, and the capture points reset to neutral control after 10 seconds.
Both teams must race to acquire the eponymous Blitzball in the center of the map. Once a character controls the Blitzball, they must run with it to a goal located in the enemy base to score a point. The first team to reach the maximum number of points wins. If the ball-carrier is killed before scoring, the ball is dropped and can be picked up by anyone. If the ball falls off the stage or is not picked up after a length of time, the ball will reset to the center of the stage. If the ball-carrier takes too long to score, then the ball explodes and takes the carrier with it, before resetting in the center of the stage.
