PUBG Corporation has announced a new way to experience PUBG: Arcade Mode.
Through Arcade mode, players will be able to experience new ways to play the game outside of the traditional Battle Royale format.
The first of these new ways is the classic Team Deathmatch mode, which will be available in Arcade for a limited time. In Team Deathmatch, two teams of eight will face off against each other in a winner takes all frag fest, where the first team to reach 50 kills or who has the highest kills after ten minutes takes the round.
The first team to secure two round victories is the overall winner of the match. Team Deathmatch features sections of PUBG’s maps that have been converted into smaller battlefields.
Update 6.2 also brings a requested rebalance of throwables. Frag grenades, molotovs, smoke grenades and stun grenades will now all weigh more, meaning players can carry fewer of them in their inventory.
Vests will now also mitigate frag grenade damage and fire from molotovs will spread faster. There are other changes that have been made to throwables, which can be seen in the PUBG patch notes.
Update 6.2 lands on PC live servers on February 19th and console live servers shortly after. The changes are live now on the PC test server.
