The wave of official Halloween updates to video games has begun because the PUBG crew have revealed a scary new in-game occasion.- Advertisement -
At the second, it is not totally clear what this occasion will probably be known as (if it has an official title), how lengthy it can run for, and even how a lot content material will probably be included as a part of it. However, evidently the principle draw of this occasion will probably be some new (and really creepy) character skins. Based on the knowledge that has been revealed to date, evidently stated skins will embody a creepy clown (which is completely not a rip-off of IT), a creepy attractive nurse (which is completely not borrowed from Silent Hill 2), and Purge-like masked characters (that are completely lifted from The Purge).
Of course, having Purge characters in a battle royale recreation does really make fairly a little bit of sense.
Beyond that, this replace will function such thematic additions as a brand new night time mode for the Erangel map, candles and pumpkins unfold throughout the spawn space, scarecrows that seem when an enemy has been killed by an AKM, and a “spooky face” that seems when grenades detonate. The crew guarantees that each one of those updates are “coming quickly” and that this occasion may even be playable on the iOS an Android variations of the sport.
We think about that you’ll maintain utilizing the unlockable scary skins after the occasion has concluded, however it’s at all times potential that this recreation will go the Team Fortress 2 route by limiting these outfits to a yearly timeframe. We actually do not count on that you’ll entry them past this occasion.
This occasion seems to be fascinating, however we marvel if it is the form of factor that can draw gamers who’ve left PUBG again to the sport or if it is only a “that is neat” deal with for individuals who nonetheless play the previous king of the battle royale style. With Call of Duty‘s Blackout mode taking off and gaining steam amongst the previous followers of PUBG, it is beginning to seem like the PUBG crew are going to should dig fairly deep into their bag of updates and tips with a view to restore the sport to its former glory.
