PUBG Corp is slowly, but surely, laying out a roadmap for the Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. Most notably, the developers are now testing a deathmatch mode for the game; one that departs from the current battle royale style that made the game popular.
Called War Mode, the deathmatch will allow players to respawn into games after they die. The only way to win is to gather 80 points through a combination of revives, knock downs, and kills.
To make things easier, each player is supplied with an SMG by default, reducing the need to scavenge for weapons across the map.
It’s a more traditional approach to gaming if there was one. It may also be a little more beginner friendly, as players won’t be penalised as much for rushing in and dying. If anything, the deathmatch could be a lower barrier to entry for a game that requires quite a bit of map knowledge to get ahead of the competition.
War Mode is currently only available as a custom game, as the developers are still working things out. The ultimate goal is to roll out deathmatches as an Event Mode, but it sounds like that isn’t set in stone either.
