Surprise! With the upcoming 6.2 update, PUBG Corp. in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds establish a completely new game mode on PC and consoles, which even deviates completely from the Battle Royale principle. We are talking about a team deathmatch mode in which two teams of eight players compete against each other in the first person perspective (FPP).
A total of seven battlefields are available for the launch, which are borrowed from four already known maps. You will find yourself in sections of the maps Sanhok, Vikendi, Miramar and Erangel. Instead of having to collect your equipment lengthily, you simply select one of many different “spawn kits” in the menu, which provide different combinations of equipment.
The new Team Deathmatch mode could be particularly interesting for all players who appreciate the gameplay rather than the survival aspect of PUBG. So if you have friends who didn’t particularly like “Loot 15 minutes and then die”, then you should say exactly this – a possibly suitable alternative for all of them should still be available in Season 6.
The goal of Team Deathmatch mode is typically to get the most kills. The winner is the side that gets the most kills in ten minutes or, alternatively, fills the 50 kills first. In total, two round wins are needed to win the entire match.
Rules & Changes
Of course there are some changes to the gameplay compared to the normal Battle Royale survival struggle. We list the most important of these below, you can read all the rules in the screenshot below. By the way, there is also a hint about other planned modes, exciting!
