Rounds game mode Beta launch

Hey Soldiers!

Standby for deployment! Your all new Ballistic Overkill game mode is set for imminent launch.

Sick and tired of Battle Royale style games? Don’t worry you will not find a “Ballistic Battlegrounds” here! We know that you would much rather run and gun than hide in a corner.

We will be launching the Beta version of the 'Rounds' game mode on Thursday evening (EST). This will be a game mode with up to 6 players on each team. Each round will last 90 seconds and if you are eliminated you will only be able to spectate your own team members. The winning team is either the team with the last member alive or the most living players at the end of the round. The overall winner is the first team to win 4 rounds.

We will announce further details on this game mode when the Beta version goes live on Thursday 2 August 2018
