PUBG Mobile 0.13.0 Update: Hands-On
PUBG Mobile (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) version has received a new update. The latest build 0.13.0 was first announced on the 11th of June by the developers. Tencent Games, the company behind the globally popular mobile iteration of the PC game has also undergone server maintenance to accommodate the new changes. The latest update is a massive download of 1.98GB for Android and 2.45GB on iOS. New features of the latest build are not limited to, Team Deathmatch on EvoGround and gameplay updates for the zombie mode.
Team Deathmatch Hands-On
Team Deathmatch is a game mode derived straight from the popular Call Of Duty franchise, with fast-paced firefights in both FPP and TPP. Custom rooms can also be created for the new mode as well. With the new updates, players now have an option to have separate settings for TPP and FPP in-game. Additionally, a new MVP showcase system at the end of the match has been added, all players will receive a default MVP pose.
PUBG Mobile TDM is set in the warehouse with the entire environment complimenting the game mode. Players can dart back and forth between covers, run through the large ship containers, and have an open firefight in the warehouse itself. The gameplay is rushed and will keep players at the edge of their seats. No moment can be spared as the first team to 40 kills wins the match, so the formula is to grab your preferred gun of choice and gun down the enemy.
The match starts with a couple of seconds allotted for players to equip a gun of their choice along with its attachments. Players character does not need any medical supplies as health is automatically generated once the player stops taking fire for after a few moments. So cover does play an integral part. The map can be used for various vantage points in the map or simply to flank an unsuspecting enemy. MVP’s from the winning team will be featured after the game ends alongside the scoreboard for the entire match.
