Godzilla Crossover Event Roars Into PUBG Mobile

The crossover is based on the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters film that will bring a "gargantuan twist" to PUBG.

PUBG Mobile is getting another crossover event soon, this time with the Godzilla franchise.

The event comes before the impending release of Godzilla: King of Monsters on May 31. However, the PUBG x Godzilla crossover doesn't have a specific date just yet. Currently, it's scheduled for "sometime" in May.

There isn't much May left, so presumably, it will be within the next week or so.

So far, Tencent and PUBG Corp haven't released many details about the event itself either. Players will uncover "ominous in-game clues" related to Godzilla's imminent arrival, and it may or may not have something to do with the various other monsters that will be showcased in the film: Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidora.

PUBG and its mobile variant are no strangers to crossovers and special events. There have been several this year already, including a spy-themed event, a TERA crossover, and, for PUBG Mobile, a Resident Evil crossover.

Each crossover introduces a new gameplay mode or element, such as timed enemy encounters or special loot drops, along with plenty of exclusive skins, weapons and cosmetics.

The Resident Evil 2 remake event introduced a new battle royale mode with some interesting mechanics as well. Battles took place over the course of several days and nights, and all players were prone to attacks from RE characters during the day. At night, though, Tyrants and zombies came to life (or not-life, as the case may be) and added an extra survival element to the mode.

It seems possible this Godzilla crossover would do something similar, given the phrase "gargantuan twist" used in the original announcement. That might mean players have to avoid giant monsters and the Big Lizard itself while trying to take out opponents or may have to cooperate Pokemon GO Raid-style before turning against each other again.

We'll update once more information becomes available.
