PUBG’s New Event is live, and it features absolute carnage.
The Tequila Sunrise Event which featured shotguns only with pre-determined circles on the Miramar Map ended a while ago, and PUBG Corp. just released the new event mode for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S Battlegrounds called ‘War’. War Mode went live on April 12, 7 PM PDT which is 7:30 AM IST. It will end on April 15, 7 PM PDT.
This is the most fast-paced event in PUBG yet. In War, 3 Squads consisting of 10 players in every team (total 30 players) will drop in Erangel or Miramar, with the weather locked to ‘Sunny’. The circle location and size will be determined in advance (as soon as players get into the plane) and the circle location and size remain constant throughout the duration of the game.
Each player will get a random rifle (either an AR or DMR), a random pistol, level one vest and helmet, and a grenade – with more random loot present on the map and care packages which drop every 90 seconds. After dropping, it’s all-out war. Players fight each other in a deathmatch and when they die, they respawn and drop from the plane again after a while.
The first team to hit 200 points wins. The match duration is 15 minutes, and if no team is able to accumulate 200 points, the team with most points gets the chicken dinner and wins the game.
Here is the point scoring structure –
1. Enemy Killed: +3 points
2. Enemy Knocked Out: +1 point
3. Team Player Revived: +1 point
4. Team Player Knocked Out/Killed: -5 points
The event is available in all regions. NA/EU/AS/SEA/OC regions get both, TPP and FPP modes, while KR/JP/SA regions only get TPP mode. You can invite a maximum of 9 friends before starting matchmaking, and the game will fill the remaining slots (if any) with random people.
That’s the promotional video for the new event, showcasing players competing in the fast-paced event in various areas of Erangel or Miramar, including Pochinki, Apartments (near School), Minas Generales, Military Base, and more.
War Mode is clearly very different from the normal battle royale experience.
It’s interesting to see PUBG Corp. introducing event modes quite different from the normal battle royale experience. The gameplay is way more fast-paced than before and it’s a refreshing change (and good practice!) for players, and most importantly – a ton of fun.
