PUBG's New Tequila Sunrise Mode Is Live Now



PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' latest Event Mode has begun--and this one is going to get messy. Tequila Sunrise pits players against each other in close quarter combat with shotguns and melee weapons as the weapons of choice.

The mode pits four-man squads against each other on the Miramar map, and begins April 5 at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET (3 AM BST on April 6). It will be active for 72 hours until the same time on April 8 (or April 9 in some regions). There are also some twists when it comes to safe zones that should keep things interesting. Here's what PUBG Corp. has shared about it:

In other PUBG news, a new patch has just been released for the game, bringing with it bug fixes and the new Killer Spectate mode that allows you to watch the player who killed you during the rest of the match. If your killer dies too, you'll be able to continue watching the player who killed them. Meanwhile, PUBG's upcoming map, currently in the testing phase, now supports players who want to play as Squads on Codename: Savage on the game's experimental test server.
