We love how you can watch dancing in PUBG patch 19.1
Ok so embedded above and on YouTube (opens in a new tab) there is the trailer of PUBG: Battlegrounds (opens in a new tab)‘ Patch 19.1, where they added a bunch of neat weapons and gear and their Assassin’s Creed crossover. (opens in a new tab) The new update brings players back to the Haven map and infuses it with some neat new weapons that fill cool niches and an Assassin’s Creed crossover that puts the infamous Abstergo company in the spotlight.
However, I would like to draw attention to this feature of the new patch. One where you can watch other people’s teams perform their sick dance moves, tuning in to their music and having your character cheer them on.
Despite all the Battle Royale news that usually focuses on the sweaty frenzy surrounding competition, guns, and strategies, you have to remember that these are basically social games that you play with other people. . They’re supposed to be fun, and what’s more essential to social multiplayer gaming than doing goofy things in the lobby or around town before the round starts? I applaud that.
Anyway, the minutiae of the sweat gun is also very neat in this patch. First, the gear: there’s a Blue Chip Detector which, despite taking up a primary weapon slot, scans for enemies within 100m of you and displays all 12 of them. closer on the map. There’s also a Folding Shield, a portable heavy cover that has a big stack of HP for blocking hallways or when you’re caught in the open. The Deston map also adds the MP9, a fully automatic 9mm submachine gun – the key is that it’s 9mm, so while it’s not a beast like the P90, ammo is absolutely everywhere.
Deston also gets the Pillar Safety Car, a fast beast with sirens and lights so you can bend really hard when chasing other teams. There is also good material in the trunk.
The Assassin’s Creed collaboration, which ahead of today’s Destiny x Fortnite leak (opens in a new tab) I would have called the weirdest so far this year, there’s a lot going on. It adds the Haven map back for the first time since 2020, and the antagonists AC Abstergo take over a large building. There are faith ledges on the roof, in case you fancy jumping buildings, and a bunch of cosmetics to earn throughout the season.
You can learn more in the full patch notes for PUBG 19.1 (opens in a new tab)or on the PUBG: Battlegrounds website (opens in a new tab). You can play PUBG: Battlegrounds on Steam (opens in a new tab)where it recently went free-to-play and attracted a bunch of new players. (opens in a new tab)
