When two stag or hen events probability upon one another down Espionage and merge, the bottom trembles on the may of their mixed banter and home windows the size of Victoria Avenue rattle to their roars. I can’t start to think about the implications if twelve events ought to be a part of forces. We’ll discover out this weekend in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, because the stag & hen battle royale will tonight launches its first 50v50 occasion mode. God assist the individuals of Yasnaya Polyana. You should purchase some new threads too, because the devs are whopping a wad of Plunbucks in apology for that current server-sorting screw-up.
This weekend’s occasion is the primary look of ‘Platoon Mode’, the place the 100 gamers are divided into solely two groups. Both sides is made of 5 ten-player squads, all stuffed in with automatch, and easily attempting to homicide one another to bits. Gamers not in your individual squad can be marked so that you don’t by accident homicide them.
The occasion will start at 3am on Friday the 19th of October (or for Pacific timezoners, that’s 7pm tonight) then run till 3am on Monday the 22nd (7pm on Sunday for Pacifists).
50v50 modes are my favourites in Fortnite Battle Royale and I’ve already loved Plunkbat’s occasions with eight-player squads (although the banter did get out of hand), so I’m eager to see how this goes. Spherical up the laaads.
This primary Platoon Mode sounds a fairly easy megamurder however extra advanced might comply with. The subsequent patch will add Customized Match choices for ‘Struggle Mode: Conquest’, a 50v50 mode the place groups will compete to seize and maintain goals to attain factors. Presumably that’ll come as an occasion mode later too.
Replace #23, now live on the test server, may also introduce a brand new weapon. The Skorpion is a 9mm machine pistol able to full-auto fireplace, which seems like it will probably develop into fairly nifty with an added prolonged journal, Uzi inventory, and foregrip. Possibly not nice, however nifty.
That replace may also make the blue zone wall much less opaque, strolling again a current change that made it quite a bit tougher to see gamers out within the blue. And it’ll repair some bugs, tweak some issues… it’s not a serious replace, only a small little bit of progress. I’d count on Replace #23 to most likely hit the stay servers subsequent week.
I had half-hoped they could have massive enhancements up their sleeves to make a daring assertion after the launch of Cod Blopout however ah, sluggish and regular it’s. Although typically it’s extra ‘one step forwards, two steps again.’
Following the recent messy addition of automatic region sorting, the place a bug meant gamers might be sorted onto distant servers the place they lagged, builders PUBG Corp are handing out an apology gift. Log in by Monday the 23rd and also you’ll obtain 20,000 Battle Factors plus a brand new hat: a black beanie with shiny purple headphones excessive.
“We sincerely apologise for the unfavorable expertise brought on by our current server connectivity and matchmaking associated points,” they are saying. I spent my apology Plunkbucks on Plunkbags that largely gave me the identical pair of sandals, which I can’t say I discovered a fantastic consolation.
