"PUBG" Hits 400 Million Players, Developer Celebrates With Discount Sale On Game


In the other battle royale game, players can rank up their Battle Pass to earn some rewards for free, but the bulk of the unlockables are in its paid version. If you want to pick up the game for the first time or gift it to a friend, you'll be able to grab it for just $19.99 (33.33% off the normal price).

It's the first time that PUBG has been on sale with Steam, and the precise major milestone being celebrated is that there are now over 400 million folks who have played the game in total across all platforms, including mobile. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, nicknamed PUBG for short, is a very similar game.

PUBG Corp says more information on the first Event Pass will surface before Sanhok's launch on Friday.

Developer PUBG Corp has revealed that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has reached over 50 million copies sold in its lifetime across PC and Xbox One.

"The Event Pass is created to reflect the opinions of players who wanted a trackable progression-related system, and at the same time allows you to unlock new content in PUBG in a way that is different from the crate and key system", explains PUBG Corp here. After earning certain levels, free DLC like clothing and weapon skins will unlock and a premium version of the Event Pass will unlock more faster.

PUBG Corp said that players will be able to play the missions if they're hesitant about buying the pass, and mission progress will always be tracked. It'll also include "dozens" of daily and weekly missions, some of which are specific to the tropical-themed map.

More information can be found on the new Sanhok and Event Pass page set up by the developer.

The Event Pass is a trackable progression related system, which allows player to unlock cosmetics in the game in a manner different from the crate and key system.
