Xbox box players of PUBG have been treated to an event mode where they brawl in eight player teams. The mode called Desert Knights which is coming to Xbox for the second time is a limited time event which sees PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players drop in on Miramar fully equipped and a total of 24 players per match will be allowed. This makes it a game where three teams will battle it out with eight players in each team to become the alpha.

Players equipped with level 3 helmets, vests as well as backpacks, armed with a care package weapon, first aid kit, random sidearm, and two grenades. The objective of each team is to kill opponents and reach 150 points first. Killing an enemy grants the team 3 points. Each match will last for 15 minutes instead of the previous 12 minutes. Killed players respawn and drop back into the small portion of the map with the plane, that makes a passing every 30 seconds.

The possible locations are shown on the map below as well. There are no care package drops in this mode. There is no red zone and dynamic weather is turned off as well, and the event only takes place during sunrise and friendly fire is turned off as well.
