PUBG To Debut Event Pass, But Will It Work?

Ever since Battle Royale came out (you can thank Minecraft for the idea from the many hunger game mods that tested out this idea), gaming corporations have looked to capitalize on the market and give war-hungry gamers the satisfaction of being the solo victor atop ninety-nine losers who just weren’t good enough.

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, also known as PUBG or PUBG Corporation, was by far the gamers choice until Fortnite: Battle Royale entered the scene. Epic Games, developers of Fortnite, came in quite unexpectedly and in the blink of an eye became the #1 played game worldwide. Smashing all the charts, stealing most of the market share and cashing in quite handsomely from their efforts left PUBG quite literally in the dust.

So what has PUBG done to show that they are #1 (or #5)? Well, for starters they copied Fortnite and released their own mobile-version of PUBG. Now, they’re looking to copy the Fortnite Battle Pass. From a recent dev post, they explained why:

We wanted to create a whole new gameplay and reward experience. Ultimately, we decided to go with a new system: the “Event Pass.” It’ll be made available on June 22, the same day Sanhok hits live servers.

The Event Pass is designed to reflect the opinions of players who wanted a trackable progression-related system, and at the same time allows you to unlock new content in PUBG in a way that is different from the crate and key system.

Even though they haven’t posted any pricing details yet, speculations for this four-week event pass have many guessing this will cost around $10USD. Which, ironically, puts it right in line with the pricing for a Fortnite Battle Pass, which lasts three months.

Many gamers on Twitter voiced their concerns:

Will this be yet another nail in PUBG’s coffin? Does this mean Fortnite is starting to see a decline while PUBG swoops in for the kill? What do you think? Let us know via social media or in our Discord server! Be sure to click your reaction to this article down below!
