PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, commonly known as PUBG, will transition to a “free-to-play” (F2P) model starting January 12, 2022 on PC and consoles, signalling the start of a new era for the popular battle royale game.
When PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS transitions to F2P, it will introduce BATTLEGROUNDS Plus, an optional premium account upgrade that allows players to access a variety of new and exclusive in-game features.
While all players will start with Basic Account that offers access to most game features, they can upgrade to BATTLEGROUNDS Plus for a one-time fee of $12.99 USD and gain access to additional features.
The additional features included Bonus 1,300 G-COIN, Survival Mastery XP + 100% boost, Career – Medal tab, Ranked Mode, Custom Match functionality and In-Game items, including the Captain’s Camo set, which includes hat, camo mask and camo gloves.
Players who have purchased and played PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS before its transition to F2P will receive the PUBG – SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE PACK, which will include an automatic account upgrade to BATTLEGROUNDS Plus, the Battle-Hardened costume skin set, the Shackle and Shanks Legacy Pan and the Battle-Hardened Legacy nameplate.
