PUBG Corporation has released a brand new update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. This patch adds a brand new way to experience PUBG – Arcade Mode. Through Arcade mode, players will be able to enjoy new ways to play the game outside of the traditional Battle Royale format.
The classic Team Deathmatch mode 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 iconic maps that have been converted into smaller battlefields perfect for TDM mayhem.
Update 6.2 also brings a much requested rebalance of throwables. Frag grenades, Molotovs, Smoke grenades, and stun grenades will now all weigh more, meaning you can carry fewer of them in your inventory. Vests will now also mitigate frag grenade damage and fire from molotovs will spread considerably faster.
It’s also worth noting that this patch improves performance with additional WorldOriginShift optimizations. It also resolves a number of bugs and issues.
While Update 6.2 will go live on February 19th, it is currently available on the PTS. As such, PC gamers can go ahead and test it.
