On Twitter, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds teased a new zombie mode. Details on how the mode will work are undetailed—though the developers note that they were inspired by Twitch streamers' own zombie-inspired custom matches. In those unofficial battles, one single squad arms themselves against the rest of the players on the map: all armed only with melee weapons or their fists, attacking a single squad in gigantic hordes.
The teaser shows zombies swiping, implying that players would be playing as them. Given the game doesn't have AI as it currently stands, it's easy to imagine a "zombie" mode where when players die, they become zombies, or a majority spawns initially as the undead, as they attempt to turn the uninfected.
PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds' is coming to Xbox One X later this year. In the meantime, it's available for PC on Steam Early Access. The game, as of June, has already sold over three million copies to date.
