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
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.
