After finishing the tutorial missions, you will find the Gameplay Modes option at the top-left corner on your screen … (Play).
There are three Gameplay Modes: Practice, Cooperative and Versus.
The Practice Mode is a single player (plus 3 AI allies) versus the AI. The Cooperative Mode queues the player to play with other players against the AI. The Versus Mode allows players to battle against other players.
The Cooperative Mode becomes unlocked after reaching level 2. Versus Mode is unlocked at level 3.
Note: I have never played a MOBA before, and make mistakes. Go easy on me. Simply enjoy the content. All you get to see in these videos are from the Technical Alpha and in no way represent what you will see in the final product. Graphic Settings’ Texture quality is set to Ultra on an EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST at 1920×1080. However, recorded using Xsplit at 1280×720. Choose 720HD after launching the videos. In addition, I have played all Blizzard betas beyond 2001. It’s possible Ultra settings’ art might be a placeholder in Technical Alpha.

After the tutorial, the player begins his first Practice Mode. It is basically a single-player with 3 AI allies versus 4 AI enemies. This video shows the Blackheart’s Bay battleground.
