PUBG's new Event Pass sounds a lot like Fortnite's Battle Pass

PUBG juggernaut hits 400 million users, and for a limited time, players can get the PC version for $19.99

"We are not resting on our laurels though, as we continue to focus on performance and content updates for current players to enjoy, and look to our future as we aspire to deliver the signature PUBG experience to a broader gaming audience, worldwide". In conjunction with the launch of the new Sanhok map this Friday on 22 June, the Event Pass system will also go live.

If you want to unlock content from Sanhok Event Pass permanently, you'll need to buy into it.

The Event Pass lasts about a month and includes "dozens of missions, including daily missions, weekly missions and Sanhok-themed missions".

The Event Pass sounds very similar, in theory, to Fortnite's Battle Pass.

What's more, players who don't buy the pass will also be able to "temporarily" unlock "many" of the items included in the pass, though permanent unlocks are obviously reserved for paying players. Each Pass is time-limited, requiring players to complete assorted in-game challenges to level up their Pass and unlock new content. Check out our best battle royale games. Unfortunately, it's still full price on Xbox One. An alternative version is already available on PUBG Mobile, as the Royale Pass system launched yesterday. In the end, the team decided on the Event Pass. The first Event Pass will be available for around four weeks, and you can purchase it at any time to unlock the rewards you've earned permanently.

The Battle Pass feature is an increasingly popular alternative to other forms of DLC microtransactions for "Games as a Service" titles.

Outside of bringing in new people, however, the June 22 update could get many lapsed players to return to the game. Despite its smaller scale, it still hosts 100 players, meaning matches are much quicker and more intense when contested on Sanhok.
