I know that they're multiplayer modes but what are the differences?

Player Vs Player (pvp) is exactly as it sounds. Player Vs Environment (pve) is the campaign or free mode where you can team up against npc enemies.

So can I get other players in PvE and they don't face me?

PvE is strictly Player vs Environment. Unless you are in the Crucible the game is PvE. Story, Explore, Strikes, and Raids are all PvE.

The other players in PvE stuff is like cooperative mode in other games. They more or less help you toward the same goals.

In PvP you are in an arena area where it's your team vs another team of players.

Ok... I think I got it. A bit different from the PvP/PvE I'm used to.

pve = coop or alone
pvp = vs players, but can still be teams too (which technically is coop and competitive at once)
I want to agree with you but then we'd BOTH be wrong...

What other posters in this thread have said is correct, I'm not sure what else you thought it could be. It has basically been the accepted terms since the 90s.

maybe for MMOs but I never use the terms PvP or PvE but I dont play MMOs so that might be why. I use campaign and matchmaking and I think they are better terms for this game because its not an MMO.
