PUBG Going Free-to-Play This January 12, Battlegrounds Plus Announced

If you wanted to play PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), but held off due to the cost, well, you won’t have an excuse now, as PUBG is going free-to-play (F2P) this January 12, 2022 on all platforms! This marks a big step in making sure PUBG is on level ground with other battle royale mainstays as Apex Legends, Warzone, and Fortnite.

When PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS transitions to F2P, it will introduce BATTLEGROUNDS Plus, an optional premium account upgrade that allows players to access a variety of new and exclusive in-game features. While all players will start with Basic Account that offers access to most game features, they can upgrade to BATTLEGROUNDS Plus for a one-time fee of $12.99 USD and gain access to the following:

  • Bonus 1,300 G-COIN

  • Survival Mastery XP + 100% boost

  • Career – Medal tab

  • Ranked Mode

  • Custom Match functionality

  • In-Game items, including the Captain’s Camo set, which includes hat, camo mask and camo gloves

Players who have purchased and played PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS before its transition to F2P will receive the PUBG – SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE PACK, which will include an automatic account upgrade to BATTLEGROUNDS Plus, the Battle-Hardened costume skin set, the Shackle and Shanks Legacy Pan and the Battle-Hardened Legacy nameplate.

Those interested can visit the registration site to try and play the PUBG F2P version early.
