The Daily Moot (5/24/18)
1. ‘Ghillie Crossing’ is PUBG’s New Event Mode
We’re not sure if PUBG’s new event mode is utterly unplayable or the best idea ever, but we’re certainly excited to try it. The new PUBG mode removes all guns and vehicles from play and leaves players with ghillie suits, crossbows, and a dream. You can also still use grenades, heals, and attachments but not much else. There won’t be red zones or air drops either. The game mode starts today and lasts until Sunday night.
2. More Trademarks Hint at Mini N64 Console Yesterday Nintendo filed even more trademarks that have fans excited for the possibility of a new Nintendo 64 console.
