PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is getting an Event Mode to test unusual game settings

Darwin project 4

PUBG in comparison, also has ingame purchases for cosmetic items like clothes, but the majority of its revenue came from the initial price of the game which is set to $30 (Rs 1000 in India). It pits squads against each other, but each team can now have up to eight members.

Other games can feel a bit harsh, as they drop players in and force them to find out on the fly, and it especially makes combat a tough proposition when you have zero clue when a gunfight will occur.

Epic has more than twice the employees of PUBG creator Bluehole, which a year ago issued what sounded like a legal threat when Fortnite's battle royale mode was first released.

Players can only play TPP on Erangel for now, which the studio claims to be for effective matchmaking. "A launch date for the replay feature was not provided, but Epic said it would be released "soon" for consoles and PC".

One such feature that PUBG gamers will see in the next iteration is the Flare Gun. Most of it will only be available for a limited time, suggesting that some will be for keeps. Astronomically so, even. PUBG would likely have been a hit even without the benefits of its huge Chinese popularity, but those players have cementend the game's success to the point where it's had a massive effect on the region distribution of Steam. 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".

"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", said developer Bluehole via a recent post on the game's Steam blog.
