PUBG Announces 'Event Pass' Premium Reward System, Details Here

PUBG fans have a lot to look forward to this Friday when Update #15 arrives, including multiple UI tweaks, performance optimizations, and the long-awaited release of the battle royale title’s third map, Sanhok. However, PUBG Corp isn’t quite finished. The developer has also announced a new progression system in the form of a purchasable ‘Event Pass” which arrives alongside Sanhok.

Revealed in a blog post over on Steam, the upcoming Event Pass is designed to sate the players that want a trackable progression-related system, and as such it will not be replacing PUBG’s crate and key system. Beginning this Friday, players will be able to track and complete daily, weekly, and map-specific missions that will be available in blocks of four weeks. Those that purchase the Event Pass will unlock special rewards for completing each of these missions, with players potentially unlocking one free chance to change your in-game PUBG name.

If you’re hesitant about buying the Pass, but want to play the missions, you’re free to do that. And your mission progress is always tracked, so you can buy the Event Pass late in the event and still get all the rewards you’ve earned. “

For those not looking to pay for an Event Pass, players can still unlock the items through completing missions, but only temporarily. That said, according to the developer there is a single, special item that those without a pass can unlock, though they gave no mention as to what it is.

In celebration of the release of Sanhok, the first Event Pass will feature plenty of Sanhok-specific missions that will reward players with a themed item set, likely beach-themed if the latest trailer is any indication. PUBG promises to provide more info on the first Event Pass before Sanhok hits the live servers on Friday.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available for PC and Xbox One.
