PUBG: Battleground has now changed to a free-to-play model and is now accessible to all PUBG players on PC and consoles; on January 12, Krafton officially announced it through their website. Krafton recently launched PUBG Battlegrounds Mobile India solely for the ardent fans of PUBG residing in India after banning Chinese apps. Unfortunately, the free-to-play concept isn’t available in PUBG: Mobile.

Being a paid platform for several years, PUBG reacted to a massive turnaround; howbeit, the new model has nothing to do with gamers who purchased the premium version before the launch of the model. PUBG wouldn’t leave them in the wasteland.

PUBG hasn’t completed twirling the wheel; some paid options are available for players inclined to get extra support and buy some different items that can access paid opportunities in the arena. The premium upgrade would show additional benefits like extra G-Coin, a 100 percent boost for Survival Mastery XP, and special in-game items.

Krafton has been pondering bringing the free-to-play model since December 9, when The Game Awards took place. They also announced some pivotal plans for the game studio and its masterpiece, PUBG. The game surpassed 70 million copies since it was released in 2017, while Battlegrounds  Mobile India outstripped the 50 million downloaders mark in the Google Play store. However, the game has gone through a lot of chaos over a year.

According to Krafton, players who have bought PUBG: Battlegrounds have the advantage to get  PUBG Special Commemorative pack which could get them to Battlegrounds Plus, where they can have a roister with exciting gifts and rewards; this doesn’t end here; PUBG also offers the gamers a Battle-Hardened costume skin set, Battle-Hardened Legacy nameplate, that comes with temporary and permanent skins collection. PUBG also rolled out an update version 15.2, bringing various new things to the Battleground.


Battle royale games usually follow the track down of its competitors to show up their unity; the new tactical gear is no exception to it; players can acquire Drones and Control them across the land to lure out foes from the campaigns, even they could fetch props by flying on the ground, the team has introduced few strategical items, the emergency welding device would get player to redemption their teammates from the hands of enemies.
