In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, there are three game mode variants: Territories, Supremacy, and Skirmish. Veterans of the franchise will instantly recognize the Territories game mode, since previous games in the series have primarily featured this mode. Supremacy and Skirmish, however, are new additions to the franchise; the former is a more mobile, nuanced variation on Territories, while the latter is designed for small-scale, competitive play. Each game mode relies on control over objectives, but each differs in terms of how objectives affect the overall gameplay of the maps.
