The latest big update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is now live on PC, and will be making its way to the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game soon. The major highlight of this patch is the new team deathmatch mode, which allows for eight-on-eight gunfights across seven different arenas taken from the game’s maps. The mode, which has been added as part of the game’s sixth season, is available through the Arcade menu.
Victory in a round is decided when a team hits 50 kills, or by which team has the most kills after 10 minutes, and a team needs to win two of three rounds to secure the overall win. Players can respawn and earn points for both kills and assists, which can then be used to restore health if you go five seconds without receiving damage. There are no knockdowns or friendly fire.
