After almost a year, PUBG MOBILE finally has a new rival of its cadre – Call of Duty Mobile. The latter is still in beta and it will be a while before it is available for download on all mobile devices. We took a quick look at Call of Duty Mobile a few days ago and found that it was similar to PUBG MOBILE in some ways, especially when it comes to the Battle Royale mode. But the game also brought along some classic Call of Duty gameplay modes to the mobile version as well. And it seems that now PUBG MOBILE is taking some inspiration from the new game for its next update.
Some of the most authentic speculations regarding PUBG MOBILE has been coming from Mr.GHOST GAMING and in its latest one, it is suggested that PUBG MOBILE will get a new Deathmatch mode. This new gameplay mode will join existing gameplay modes such as Quick Match, Survive Till Dawn events and others. The feature is speculated to be coming to PUBG MOBILE very soon with the upcoming 0.13.0 update.
The Deathmatch mode has been previously spotted on Call of Duty Mobile. The Deathmatch feature makes the new game distinct from others in this category. Neither does PUBG MOBILE have it nor Fortnite. However, the PUBG MOBILE team has possibly sensed competition from Call of Duty Mobile and therefore, have resorted to bringing a similar experience to the game. It should be noted that both PUBG MOBILE and Call of Duty Mobile are published by Tencent Games.
The Deathmatch mode basically lets two teams with a limited number of players fight it out until they achieve a preset number of enemy kills. In Call of Duty Mobile, the Deathmatch mode takes place in popular Call of Duty maps from the previous PC titles. Players have to kill opponents and have access to some high-tech ammunitions to make it easy for themselves. Once the player dies, he/she can respawn with replenished weapons. Note that the Deathmatch mode in Call of Duty Mobile can only be played in the first-person view for now.
For PUBG MOBILE’s Deathmatch, it is expected that players will be able to choose between first person and third person views. Additionally, PUBG MOBILE will make use of its existing maps to set the game scenarios. A couple of new weapons are also expected to make it easy for players under tense situations.
The PUBG MOBILE 0.13.0 update is expected to roll out soon and the Deathmatch mode will be a major addition in this update. PUBG MOBILE is also teaming up with Godzilla: King of the Monsters movie and will drop in celebratory references to the movie in the game – players will be able to spot a Godzilla as well.
