Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, the first and one of the most iconic Battle Royale video games, has decided to open the doors for everyone. The game is going completely free-to-play and will no longer be behind a paywall starting on January 12, 2022.
Since the game launched on Steam in 2017, it has been a paid game. The only original game inspired Epic Games to create a Battle Royale out of their Fortnite: Save The World game. Later, the Genre has grown a lot, with games such as CoD: Warzone and Apex Legends joining the fun.
If you have purchased PUBG, you do not have to worry about anything, as you will be compensated with the PUBG Special Commemorative Pack, which includes Battleground Plus and in-game items.
The transition from paid to free-to-play is an exciting time for all who love this game. The developers have announced that there are still some elements in PUBG which you can’t access without paying. Still, thankfully, they’re planning to introduce a new optional $12 monthly subscription called Battlegrounds Plus, so your experience won’t be limited!
