PUBG is trying out new game parameters with Event Mode – a place where PUBG Corp wants to present new ideas outside of the regular experience.
Event mode is accessible in the main menu, and its first twist is to double the rifle drop rate (matchmaking with the third-person perspective on Erangel).
The mode is unranked, although you’ll get BP at the end of a match.
PUBG Corp. says Event mode will go live soon once testing is complete, and teases that one of its next iterations includes the flare gun.
This sounds like a great way to not only offer something different from the core experience, but also to test out possible new ideas that could become mainstays.
