The PUBG Event War Mode is available now for a limited time, and puts three 10-man squads against each other on Erangel.

The war mode is available until April 15, 7pm PDT / April 16, 4am CEST / April 16, 11AM KST. “War is PUBG’s most deadly Event Mode yet”, Bluehole writes. “Join one of three 10-man squads to compete for dominance over a small slice of Erangel. Whenever you die, you’ll reappear in a plane and plummet once again into the mayhem. First team to get 200 points wins.”
