PUBG launches new Halloween event in update 2 for Xbox One

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds getting new Halloween skins and masks

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has released update 2 for the Xbox One version out into the world. This is the same update that was teased a few days ago as part of the Halloween event.

The patch has a bunch of cool new additions. For example, there’s a pack of new skins including the Ancient Mummy Set, Sinister Skull Mask, Pumpkin RIP-cord, and Maniacal Butcher Set. This latest content update is pretty spooky, setting the mood for the season.

The patch also includes a handful of bug fixes and gameplay adjustments. More bug fixes for the Xbox One version are due next month.

In terms of non-skin content, there’s a new game mode being enabled called Training Mode. This 2×2 map is essentially the pre-match lobby turned into a full mode. Meanwhile, a couple of new vehicles are also available; the Scooter and Tukshai, which can be used on the Sanhok map.

Check out the full patch notes down below.
