PUBG's first custom game, limited-time Event Mode is live now through Sunday, April 1 at 7pm PST/Monday, April 2 at 3am BST.
It's certainly a step up from last week's offering, which featured eight person squads and double rifle drop rates. The games will feature the Flare Gun, which we have previously got a look at in the dedicated servers in the game.
The flare gun has a chance of respawning in single-story small houses around the map. Only a limited number of them will be available, so it's going to be tricky to find one. Fire the gun vertically into the sky and a plane will fly in and deliver a cargo drop to your location, which will contain two weapons, a piece of Level 3 armor, and an assortment of normal care package supplies.
You don't have to go looking for the flare gun, but that's the entire point of this mode.
While the Battle Royale game rules remain the same, the Flare Gun can be used to call in a care package.
The event mode ends at 7pm PT, 10pm ET on Sunday, April 1, which translates to 3am United Kingdom on Monday, April 2.
Just like the previous event, you'll find an option to queue up for it under Event in the menu, as opposed to Classic which loads the default PUBG setup.
From the language used by the developers in the blog post, we can assume that the Flare Gun is just in testing mode right now.
"But it's created 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".
