Originally debuting on Steam Early Access in the beginning of past year, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds went pretty quickly from being an unknown entity to one of the main sparks for the battle royale craze now taking over the games industry, and since that time PUBG has seen some incredible growth according to new stats from its development studio.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has scored some pretty impressive numbers in its lifetime.
PUBG has reached a truly mind blowing milestone, with the developer announcing the Battle Royale phenomenon has sold over 50 million copies, and is home to over 400 million players. If you're more accustomed to the fast-paced craziness of Fortnite, Sanhok offers a significantly smaller playing field than the game's other maps, which means you'll spend more time battling and less time roaming around the map, trying to stay inside the circle as it shrinks.
For the first time since the game was released, PUBG is now on discount, and PUBG Corp. will be introducing the new Event Pass system too.
As a perk and potential sop to bring new players to its personal computing platform, PUBG is offering the full version of its full throttle game for $19.99 - a 33.33% cut from the game's regular price. Moreover, the rewards aren't tradeable so the only way to get them is to play the game.
PUBG's update 15 should be made available on PC some time within the next few days, just in time for the launch of Sanhok on Friday, June 22. You'll have one chance to unlock a free in game name change. If you're hesitant about buying the Pass, but want to play the missions, you're free to do that.
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.
The Event Pass lasts about a month and includes "dozens of missions, including daily missions, weekly missions and Sanhok-themed missions".
