PUBG Event Mode has been simultaneously announced and set live on the game’s PC Test Server. The Event Mode works suspiciously similarly to Fortnite‘s limited time modes, adding in mutators and special rules for a limited period.
The first PUBG Event Mode variant allows for 8-man squads.
Here’s the full announcement from PUBG Corp.:
We are very excited to announce a new system coming to PUBG – the Event Mode. You can think of the Event Mode as a periodically changing preset Custom Game where we will be trying new things and experimenting with different game parameters.
Using the Event Mode, players will be able have Battle Royale experiences otherwise not available in the public matches. But it’s designed to be much more than just a preset Custom Game, as Event Mode will feature new content, much of it available in the game only for a limited time.
The first iteration of the Event Mode will be a very simple one, as the system was only recently put together and we need to test the basics first.
This week you will be able to play with up to 8 players in a team and the rifle drop rate will be doubled. We know it’s not a huge change from the public matches but as mentioned above, this is just to get things rolling. The future of the Event Mode holds exciting things!
In other PUBG news, a flare gun has been added to the game, and it’s stupidly powerful. Looking specifically at the Xbox One version, here’s what the developer has planned for the game’s immediate future. PUBG Mobile is also now available on both Android and iOS.
