In a blog post, the developer explained that the intent behind the current crate and key system was to allow players to unlock content "in meaningful ways", and bizarrely pointed out that the system "can feel extremely satisfying whenever you unlock rare items".

As a perk and potential sop to bring new players to its personal computing platform, PUBG is offering the full version of its full throttle game for $19.99 - a 33.33% cut from the game's regular price. Each Pass is time-limited, requiring players to complete assorted in-game challenges to level up their Pass and unlock new content.

The Event Pass lasts for four weeks, and will have daily objectives, weekly objectives and Sanhok specific objectives as an incentive for playing in Sanhok. However, while on the surface this is a celebration, it might also well be a reaction to the rip-roaring success of the free (Battle Royale mode competitor) Fortnite by Epic Games.


If you do purchase the Event Pass, however, the items you unlock will be yours to keep. Although this strangely encourages camping, the missions will give you a bigger XP boost to help you climb the ladder.

Sanhok will be rolled out in a massive update that also adds the QBZ95 assault rifle, which is exclusive for the new map and replaces the SCAR-L assault rifle. We've also been promised more weapons, and more vehicles in the future too. As players progress through the content, they will unlock rewards, including a Sanhok-themed item set.

To coincide with the launch, PlayerUnknown's Battleground's price has now been slashed by 33% on Steam, which will hopefully attract some of the dwindling player base back to the game. It holds 30 rounds per magazine, although PUBG Corp. notes that can be extended to 40 rounds.
