Last week, developer The Coalition released Operation 3: Gridiron for the game. This update included a new single-life objective-based game mode that tasks two teams with running a neutral flag into their opponent’s end zone. Each round lasts two minutes and the first team to reach 13 points wins. The update also introduced new characters, maps, achievements, and more.
