For those that don’t know, the new mode is a team-based, objective mode with unlimited respawns. Teams will battle it out for control of three different areas, making for some pretty entertaining gameplay.

NICKMERCS clearly enjoyed his time playing the mode, as he stated that:

“This is by far, like, an LTM that makes sense, it’s something very very different, also something very popular with other games…it’s definitely something they needed, the pace is crazy I won’t lie to you.”

The pace is completely different to the standard battle royale mode, as players can respawn, leading to more risky pushes and aggressive plays.

Not only did NICKMERCS get the chance to play the new LTM early, but he and the others who were involved in the early playtest also got to use the brand new Legend Mad Maggie.
