Look out, Rocket League: New PUBG Lab is soccer with melee combat – PUBG News
The new PUBG Labs soccer mode allows you to beat other players and become the captain of the Korean national team.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ new partnership with Premier League footballer “Sonny” Heung-Min Son is out on consoles, PC and mobile. Futsal mode allows PUBG fans to play soccer in the battle royale engine. Heung-Min Son is a striker for Tottenham Hotspur and previously led the South Korean national football team. He is also an avid PUBG player.
PUBG’s engine is clearly not built for football but PUBG Corporation has done a pretty good job of establishing the sport. Walking with the ball will dribble forward and sprinting will launch a shot. A player can stand near their goal for a shield and act as a goalkeeper. And in traditional PUBG fashion, players can always beat each other to death if things go south.
In addition to shooting targets and playing defense, PUBG Futsal players can smash each other with a variety of melee weapons dropped on the map. Players can be killed and revived or revived with the help of teammates. A rare spawn can even grant a sawed shotgun with very limited ammo. The floating power-ups appearing on the field can heal or grant additional bonuses.
A male player with the most goals will suddenly transform mid-match into Heung-Min Son completing with a massive acceleration. The female character just steals his costume. This hilarious power can be stolen if a player scores more goals than Sonny’s embodiment.
During the event period, players can earn points by completing quests in the battle royale. They can be redeemed for contraband vouchers and high school helmet cosmetics digitally signed by “Sonny” Heung-Min Son. PUBG Futsal Mode and the collaboration between Heung-Min Son will end on August 3.
What is PUBG Labs?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds development team is full of smart people. PUBG Labs is their store. Previous labs include vehicle tests, rule set changes, and “Bluehole Mode,” making the future safe zone toxic until the outer limits start to move. Think of Labs as a PUBG minigame or alternative modes that players get for free.
In addition to serving as a fun seasonal mode, Bluehole also monitors player feedback and data from matches to influence their battle royale development. This partnership with a soccer star is mostly just for fun. Don’t expect to see explosive soccer balls scattered across Erangel’s field any time soon.
