PUBG Mobile has established itself as one of the most popular mobile battle royales ever created. The mobile game evolved from its more popular PC counterpart and is now gaining some attention in China. The popular battle royale will be an official event at the 2022 Asian Games, which will be held in Hangzhou, China.
However, unlike most PUBG tournaments, the PUBG Mobile competition will operate differently in the Asian Games. It was confirmed by the Asian Esports Federation (AESF), that the events will only include car racing and target shooting.
According to the AESF, the game will comprise four teams with four players each. There will be stages set in the event. Each stage will include target shooting missions followed by vehicle racing to a specific location. In addition, the ratings of the teams will be determined by which team arrives at the finish line first after accomplishing the shooting tasks.
“The classic gameplay mixes modern sports events such as triathlons, giving rise to an esports event that corresponds with the sportsmanship–Cross-country Shooting Competition,” the AESF said.
Last month, South Korea’s Money Today also stated that the original battle royale style isn’t permitted since shooting one another might disrupt the peace or cause conflict between the two countries.
PUBG Mobile is also one of the few games to be picked to enter in the 2022 Asian Games, with the remaining being League of Legends, Hearthstone, FIFA, Dota 2, Arena of Valor, Dream of Three Kingdoms 2, and Street Fighter V.
