Resident Evil 2 Invades PUBG In Scary New Battle Royale Mode, But Only On Mobile

about X hours ago from

The new Resident Evil 2-themed mode, titled Zombie: Survive Till Dawn, has gone live in PUBG Mobile. The crossover introduces Resident Evil 2's enemies into the mobile version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and also adds the extra challenge of bosses to the battle royale game.

Added in patch 0.11.0, Zombie: Survive Till Dawn, has 60 players face off in a 30-minute battle royale match that's divided into three days and two nights. During the day, you still must contend with other players and scavenge for weapons and resources, but wandering computer-controlled enemies from Resident Evil 2--such as lickers and undead police officers--present an added challenge. Killing these enemies rewards you with resources, but doing so might telegraph your position to other players.

At night, the game gets even more tricky. The darkness makes it hard to see, and computer-controlled enemies become much more aggressive. During both the day and night, you'll have to be on the lookout for the mode's bosses as well. William Birkin, aka G1, spawns in PUBG Mobile's police station. Regardless of the time, you'll have to contend with him if you want the location's excellent loot. Resident Evil 2's Tyrant, aka Mr. X, randomly appears around air drops to pursue those who try to claim them. To help hold back these threats, the Zombie: Survive Till Dawn introduces the new MI34 minigun.

January saw the release of two of the year's most anticipated titles, Kingdom Hearts III and Capcom's Resident Evil 2 remake, and both unsurprisingly had strong debuts in the US. According to the NPD Group's latest sales report, the two were the best-selling games in the country last month, with New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe following at third.

While the NPD Group doesn't disclose sales numbers, it notes that Kingdom Hearts 3 was the US's best-selling game for January. Furthermore, the title's total launch month dollar sales were two-and-a-half times higher than the series' previous best, Kingdom Hearts II.

Resident Evil 2 took the runner-up spot last month and similarly had 2.8 times higher dollar sales than the original, which released on PS One back in 1998. New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, meanwhile, generated 30% higher launch month dollar sales than the original Wii U title did when it released alongside the system in 2012.
