AESF recently launched a new website for Road to Asian Games 2022 and released a detailed timeline about the competition that will ultimately lead to the main event.
Under the PUBG Mobile Asian Games section, the format of this famous BR game is given and it confirms that the mode of competition is going to be very different than the one expected by PUBG Mobile community. There were initial reports of PUBG Mobile Asian Games version removing the BR mode and now, the picture is quite clear.
According to the official website, A total of sixteen players or four teams will participate in each game. A match will be comprised of multiple stages with each stage having its own target shooting mission.
After the shooting mission, teams will drive a vehicle across the designated track to complete the game. Rankings will be determined on the basis of team’s arrival at the finishing line.

The changes made to PUBG Mobile at Asian Games 2022 can considerably impact on the performance of teams practicing for this event. Its format is very different than the usual mode and hence, teams will need to alter their regular practice schedule to align with the newly specified format.
