PUBG: Battlegrounds is now free-to-play.
“We came to the decision to make PUBG: Battlegrounds free to play because we feel that it is truly the right time,” Dave Curd, Battlegrounds’ studio creative director, told GamesRadar.
“Our game is in a great place with eight maps, an engaged community, and our deep gun mechanics, so this is the natural next step and a great way to introduce more players to our universe,” Curd added. “I know there are a lot of people who are interested in PUBG: Battlegrounds but have never gotten around to playing it for various reasons – now is the perfect moment to get started.”
With the launch of the free-to-play version, comes an update. The new update features new gear and training modes.
While the PUBG: Battlegrounds will offer a standard free option, they will also offer a premium account, Battlegrounds Plus. For players who already purchased the game, Battlegrounds Plus will be automatically included. For those who are thinking of adding it, it will be $12.99 for the additional features.
Here is a list of features Battlegrounds Plus will include:
Bonus 1,300 G-COIN
Survival Masters XP + 100 percent boost
Career – Medal tab
Custom Match functionality
In-Game items, including the Captain’s Camo set, which includes hat, camo mask and camo gloves
