PUBG Mobile is seeding its latest 0.13.0 update to players across the globe. Android and iOS users can head over to their respective app stores to download the latest update of PUBG Mobile. This new version brings along a host of new elements to the popular battle royale game including a squad Deathmatch mode along with a Godzilla theme in the lobby. This is a result of the collaboration between PUBG Mobile and Godzilla: King of Monsters movie which was recently release worldwide.

Tencent Games has also revealed that PUBG Mobile recently crossed 400 million downloads with over 50 million daily active users excluding China.

What is Team Deathmatch mode?

PUBG Mobile 0.13.0 update brings a new gameplay mode-- Team Deathmatch which has been added under the EvoGround tab. It can be played in both third person and first person styles. The major highlight of this mode is that players have the ability to respawn limitlessly if they die at the hands of the enemy team. The match lasts for a duration of 10 minutes in which two squads battle out each out to get the maximum number of kills. Each kill carries 1 point and the first team to collect 40 points wins the deathmatch round. 

The gameplay is fast-paced than regular modes as it is held in a warehouse with many elements that let players hide and wait for the opposite team to attack. Or if you like to get your hands dirty, you can easily find the M249 light-machine gun and wreck havoc on the opposition.

This mode is also available when creating rooms so you can have your own personal showdown with friends.
