The update will introduce the Mercenaries mode to the game to pit players against the clock to get as many kills as possible before the timer runs out. To improve your chances in this mode, you must pick special kills, such as headshots and melee kills, to keep the clock from running out. There will also be Time Orbs scattered around the arena that you can collect to keep the clock from running out. The PlayStation Blog goes into the detail of the Mercenaries Update.
