The characteristic aspects of multiparticle states generated at T = Tc, as a result of chiral QCD phase transition, are studied in the framework of the O(4) $\phi^4$ theory. Predictions concerning critical events, in connection with current and future experiments with ultrarelativistic heavy ions, are presented.
