It’s not just a superficial change. While players are initially split between circles, the moment they come together will make for a climactic final battle.
“At a certain point you’re like ‘Ok, we’ve cleared out our circle, we think we’re good’. Then those circles merge, they come back together and you have this very directed fight,” said O’Hara.
“You’re gearing up in buildings, thinking ‘Here we go, it’s about to get confidence’. As soon as those circles hit, you have that final fight. It’s another twist in the gameplay that we feel is a cool world event that would happen.”
