PUBG News today bring us a cancelled feature
Playerunknowns Battlegrounds had in their plans to bring “something new to events”. It was a new game mode called “Platoon“, sadly the delivery was cancelled due to a critical error. The new game mode was to be a five to ten man squad game. There was an official post on PUBG news twitter account apologising for the delayed delivery. No new date has been announced for it.
Set to run till Sunday evening PDT/the early hours of Monday morning BST, Platoon would’ve taken place on Erangel whereby two teams (platoons) of 50 players would have faced off. “Each Platoon is comprised of 5 squads, and each squad has 10 players,” reads this Steam Community post. “Players in your Platoon, but not in your squad, will have a blue circle above their head. Players in your Platoon, but not in your squad, are marked with a blue circle on the minimap.”
A number of prospective Platoon players have since aired their grievances with the cancellation on the battle royale’s subreddit. This news follows developer PUBG Corp’s decision to compensate all PC players in the wake of widespread connectivity issues earlier this week—and the arrival of the Fix PUBG campaign earlier this year.
