PUBG reaches 400 million players, sells over 50 million copies

Developer PUBG Corp has revealed that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has reached over 50 million copies sold in its lifetime across PC and Xbox One. Rebranded as Event Passes, PUBG's system will offer new opportunities at in-game content apart from the current Loot Crate system.

The PUBG sale is now live, so you can get the game at the discounted price by heading to the game's Steam page and purchasing it there. Furthermore, 87 million people also log in to and play PUBG on a daily basis across all platforms.

In celebration of the game's sales milestone, the studio detailed that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now available at a discount on Steam for $19.99, which marks a 33% discount from its normal price. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, nicknamed PUBG for short, is a very similar game. Curiously, one of the highlighted features is a graphic for the "PUBG Global Invitational", which I'm pretty sure won't make the game run any better.

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 pass will launch on Friday, June 22, alongside the new map Sanhok, and will last four weeks. The trade-off is that Battle Passes require a lot of time investment to earn everything, and even then players might not level a Pass up high enough to get everything.

The developer of PUBG said that it had been toying with many ideas like releasing new content in a paid DLC format, and talked about how it had dabbled with cosmetic rewards based on scarcity.

The price of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" on Steam is now down to $20, from the original price of $30.

"If you're hesitant about buying the Pass, but want to play the missions, you're free to do that".
