Local is where you'll find the majority of your single-player options in DNF Duel. We've put together this breakdown to explain all four choices you have in Local Mode:

  • Arcade - Instead of individual rounds of fighting, the Arcade mode has you fight against multiple CPUs in an eight-part competition.
  • Free Battle - This is what players will choose if they want quick matches against an AI competitor.
  • Story - This is the main campaign for DNF Duel. It has more in-depth characterization, less constant action, and more cutscenes.
  • Survival - A lot like Free Battle, you'll compete against a computer in fights. The difference is that, in Survival Mode, you fight against an AI who gets harder and harder to beat.

About Practice Mode in DNF Duel

Playing Practice Mode in DNF Duel is as simple as it sounds. This is a single-player mode where you can work on your moves and skill. The mode features you and your NPC trainer working together to critique your form, combos, and general fighting abilities. While this mode may not be the most alluring, its practicality is something many players will likely appreciate.
