The update will also set in place a revival system, similar to Call of Duty: Mobile (CODM). Its system will be a bit different from CODM, as in it players will have to collect tokens, which can then be exchanged for Revival Cards at vending machines. Players will also be able to revive an entire team with the help of revival points scattered around the map during a match.
The update will bring an option for players to give quick commands, like “enemy spotted” or “stay alert” like we used to have in PUBG Mobile. This feature will help players communicate with teammates without turning on their microphone.
A new gun, called UAV-Lite will be added into the gameplay. Not much is known about the new gun, but it is expected to work in a similar fashion to UAV.
Training ground will get a visual and a gameplay upgrade, with new options like racing around on the track map. Players will also be able to ride the Ferris Wheel in the game.
The new addition to characters, include Skylar, based on the Vietnamese music artist, Son Tung M-TP. She will have the ability to destroy Gloo Walls.
