Players playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds this weekend may wonder where the game mode for 50-player Deathmatch is in limited time. The event mode, called Desert Knights, started on Thursday night and was supposed to run on the weekend, but developer Bluehole revealed that he had completely discontinued the mode after the game had major server issues.
Unfortunately ] PUBG Players had less than 24 hours to give Desert Knights a try as they were removed from the game on Friday afternoon. It was discovered that the mode caused problems for the servers of the game, which in turn prevented a large number of players from even connecting with PUBG . In other words, it was a decision between leaving the mode for some players while others were being kept from playing at all, or pulling the mode and tackling the problems for everyone.
The PUBG help account on Twitter has noticed that they have completed the emergency maintenance for the game and the servers are stable again are. Players who were unable to connect between Thursday and Friday should now have no problems.
Desert Knights marked the return of PUBG 's War Mode, which debuted last month, albeit with a few adapted rules. This time, up to 50 players were grouped into teams of five, each fighting against each other in a small part of the Miramar Map. In contrast to the typical Battle Royale modes, players can respawn and the winning team is the first to score 200 points.
