Information on LABS

The current LABS started off as a system in which players can experience various experimental features and modes of PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. Until now, we have operated various modes through LABS, but since LABS was originally developed for testing purposes, the current LABS service is limited to only one mode at a time. Therefore, when there is a new LABS mode in service, the previous LABS mode will be closed, which means that Intense Battle Royale mode will not be serviced during the service period of LABS: Zombie Survival 2.0. Intense Battle Royale will, however, return after Zombie Survival 2.0.

The good news is that as many players have been wanting to play Intense Battle Royale in FPP, FPP will be available for Intense Battle Royale in Custom Matches starting this month. LABS and Arcade, both of which currently service modes, will be merged during the second half of this year. The Arcade will then be expanded to service multiple modes simultaneously. We are also considering making Intense Battle Royale available in the Arcade after the reorganization. Stay tuned for the changes since there is a chance we might add FPP to Intense Battle Royale when you see it in the Arcade!

Good luck, don’t get bitten, and remember to have fun.
