New Game Mode: Payload

  • New Game Mode: Payload
    • Payload is an Attack / Defend style game mode with two rounds. The team on Attack will attempt to push a Payload cart from their base to the enemy base within the time limit. When round one is complete, both teams swap sides (I.E. a team on Defense will play on Attack for the next round) and the match is played again. The team that got the Payload cart furthest will win the match. If both teams push the Payload cart all the way, then the team that pushed it to the end point in less time will win the match. In Round 2, the Payload cart location will be displayed on the HUD and a marker will be placed in the world to show how far the cart must be pushed to win.
    • In this patch, Payload will be playable on these three maps:
      • Outpost
      • Hidden Temple
      • Frostbite Caverns
