PUBG Corp has introduced a new limited-time mode where players will compete to score goals instead of kills.
A new mode has been added to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as part of the experimental LABS event. The new mode, Futsal, focuses on scoring goals. However, this is still PUBG, so some competition can be expected.
A surprising addition is the inclusion of Premier League player “Sonny” Heung-min Son. The player who scores the most goals during the match can become a footballer. This will give them an extra speed boost until the end of the match or until someone else takes the lead.
Two teams of four will be drawn into a map filled with zones. These areas offer various benefits and twists.
Son is here to win another game. This time it is on the battlefield.
There will also be a special event to celebrate the collaboration, so check out the event details at https://t.co/55Nvr2GjGh. pic.twitter.com/gnP6faUC6W

The buff zone will give players a random buff type when they enter it. Options are increased health and speed. These buff zones also contain random melee weapons, which have a low probability of dispersing a sawed-off shotgun with two shells.
These buffs and weapons will give each player a certain role, whether attacking the ball or attacking other players. PUBG mode does not have a goalkeeper, instead allowing players to take shields inside the penalty zone. If the player leaves the penalty zone, the shield is lost, and a new shield will need to be taken.
Each match will be played in two five-minute intervals. If the score is even, there will be an additional three minutes of extra time. If there is no clear winner after that, the team with the most kills or the team with the most valuable player will be declared the winner.
This mode is available now and will be available till August 2.
Age of Empires III An African-themed DLC is coming next month, which adds two new civilizations to the RTS.
