PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Event Pass Coming Soon

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Event Pass Coming Soon

"We know there's still so much we can do to make PUBG a better game for our players". It has also sold 50 million copies on PC and Xbox One (it is free on mobile), and it has 87 million players every day.

The new map is far smaller than the first two maps for the game, clocking in at approximately a quarter of the size of either Erangel or Miramar.

The Event Pass drops on the next scheduled update for the game on June 22, which also introduces the new map, Sanhok. It's unclear if the Event Pass will tie into the Crate system at all, either by rewarding Crates, Keys, or currency, but it wouldn't be surprising if it did.

While PUBG's rise has been swift, hitting the 400 million figure in a little over six months since its worldwide release (and over 15 months since its early access release), the game's publisher has been beset with competitors nipping at its heels. Players will have around four weeks to complete each Event Pass and can upgrade from the free version to the premium version at any time to unlock any DLC associated with their earned levels.

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is going to get a new Event Pass, for players to earn additional cosmetic rewards while playing the game.

The new PUBG map, officially named Sanhok and previously known as Codename: Savage, is only 4 kilometers by 4 kilometers big.

The Event Pass sounds very similar, in theory, to Fortnite's Battle Pass. Players are are lifted to an island where they must battle to the death to remain as the last squad alive. While the content unlocked will be themed around Sanhok, players will be able to complete the required tasks to unlock the content on any of the game's maps.

For the first time since its debut in March 2017, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is selling at a discount on Steam.
