Death race Rage Gear and blind mode coming soon
During the ongoing PUBG Mobile Club Open 2019 Fall Split global finals, Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing, Tencent Games teased about a few of the upcoming features of PUBG. The republic of PUBG would soon get a new game mode dubbed ‘Rage Gear.’ Alongside PUBG would also introduce an all-new mode called color blind mode.
The ‘Rage Gear’
Like Team Deathmatch, Rage Gear is supposed to be another death race mode. According to leaks, the Rage Gear mode is supposed to be rolled out on December 11. PUBG is supposed to unveil a new update a few days before that. Following the update, the Rage Gear mode is supposed to get featured in the game in a couple of days. So Tencent might come up with the new update by December 8 or 9.
What’s new in the ‘Rage Gear?’
The Rage Gear would come up with vehicle-mounted weapons where all you supposed to do is drive your vehicle inside a track to demolish the enemy vehicles. You would get a choice between UAZ, Dacia or the Buggy to select from. Every car would be pre-installed with killer arsenals ranging from rocket launchers to M134 mini-guns.
Beside weapon handling skills, you have to show your driving skills as well to excel in the mode, because the mode won’t allow you to get off from the car during an ongoing match. Each team would get a maximum number of three vehicles featuring two players in each of the cars. The ‘Death Rage’ is supposed to be renamed as Derby Mode during its final release.
