That’s right- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has a Zombies mode on the way- but it’s not what you think.
Bluehole, the developers of smash-hit PUBG, announced via twitter earlier today that they are adding zombies to their game. However, unlike H1Z1, DayZ, or Call of Duty, the zombies will be entirely player controlled. Bluehole has done an excellent job of listening to the community, and this story is the perfect example of that.
Some streamers decided to play “zombies” with their fans. The group was split up into 4 survivors and a TON of “zombies” (regular characters without ranged weaponry). Bluehole’s development team LOVED the idea and decided to make the vision of the community a reality. It’s uncertain when Bluehole will release the new mode to the public, but they have reassured everyone that the development and refinement of the main game is still their number one priority.
In addition, the zombies mode will definitely be separate from the main game- zombies will not be incorporated into the main body of Player Unknown’s battlegrounds. There is currently no scheduled release date for the zombies mode, but we’ll keep you updated.
