Our PUBG Event Mode PGI 2018 guide contains details of the end date and time, team sizes, maximum player count and all the official rules.
PUBG’s Global Invitational 2018 event is currently going on in Berlin and it’s easily the biggest PUBG event to date. If you’re unaware of what it is, or how it works, it’s essentially a world championship with all the best teams from around the globe battling it out to be crowned the winners of the chicken dinner.
To commemorate the occasion, PUBG’s released a special PGI 2018 Event Mode which replaces the traditional format with the professional ruleset. This means matches will move at an accelerated pace with loot, vehicles and more spawning on the map much faster. Even the Blue Zone constricts at a faster rate!
In this article we’ve outlined everything you’ll need to know about this new PGI 2018 Event Mode and its all-important ruleset. We’ve highlighted the event schedule, what you’ll be able to queue in, the map and a few other things too.
The PUBG Global Invitational 2018 is live right now. To keep up with all the action, or get a brief overview of what it's all about, make sure you check out our PUBG Global Invitational 2018 guide!
