Despite being released in full this year for Xbox One, the console version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is very much still catching up to the PC version. In terms of maps, events, and other modes, the Xbox One is lagging behind. However, the team at PUBG Corp has been working on fixing that. And in a new update, they’ve revealed another mode that has been added to the game, Training Mode.
As revealed on their site, the Training Mode is as follows:
Added a Training Mode where you can practice all aspects of PUBG gameplay. The Training Mode map is 2×2 in size. You can join through matchmaking by clicking on the “Training Mode” button in the lobby. When there are more than 5 players in the matchmaking queue, the session will start immediately. Players will continue to join open sessions for up to 5 minutes after they start. (Up to 20 per session). If there are less than 5 players in the matchmaking queue, matchmaking will continue for 5 minutes. If there are still less than 5 players after 5 minutes, the session will start with the original number of players present and other players cannot join the session. Total play time is 30 minutes (e.g. in case of number 1, where you immediately enter a session, you have 5 minutes where other players can join the session + regular training mode playing time of 25 minutes). Players cannot drop below 1hp in Training mode.
While this may seem basic, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds can be a bit tough to get into at times, and so, having a Training Mode like this is very important so that players who aren’t familiar with the genre can jump in and get a taste of what’s going to happen before jumping into the main version. This will also be good to get a good grip on the controls.
So if you’re new to the game, and you have it on Xbox One, make sure that you try out the Training Mode.
