PUBG’s Training Mode is Available Now on Xbox One
Developer PUBG Corp announced today, that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ Training Mode map is available now on Xbox One. The new training mode map can be accessed via the console’s recently updated Public Test Server.
The PUBG Training Mode lets 5-20 players (solo queue with matchmaking) explore a new 2×2 km map and practice all aspects of PUBG, from driving the game’s various vehicles around the island’s race tracks, to practicing parachute landings, to mastering the perfect peek shot. There are even areas to practice vaulting, close-quarters combat, and some vehicle jumps.
Check out the Training Mode trailer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, featuring some gameplay footage:
In addition to the Training Mode, the PTS will have all of the previous content that was added on October 11. You can view those patch notes here.
For those who haven’t yet used the PTS
The PTS is a separate PUBG server that’s free to download for anyone who already owns a copy of PUBG. The purpose of the test server is not just to provide a preview of upcoming features, but to find the issues we need to solve so we can work on the fix as soon as possible. The changes listed below are all coming to the PTS first because many of the changes still needs to be tested to see if there are any issues with performance.
To take part in the test, all you have to do is own a copy of PUBG for Xbox One and search for “PUBG Test Server” on the Microsoft Store.
PDT: October 18 7:00PM – 9:00PM
CEST: October 19 4:00AM – 6:00AM
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
Eurogamer said on an article in their website:
“Shortly after Training Mode was announced for PC in August (it launched in September), developer PUBG Corp promised that it would be bringing the map to Xbox One “as soon as possible”. That day is now here, albeit with things not quite in a finished state, and console players can take the new mode for a spin via Battlegrounds’ Public Test Server.”
