PSA: Log Into PUBG On PC This Weekend, Get Free Stuff
PUBG Corporation is apologizing for recent server issues by giving in-game items and currency to PC players who log in before Tuesday.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
After a recent spat of server connectivity and matchmaking issues, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds players on PC are getting something for their troubles. The game's developer, PUBG Corporation, announced that logging into the game during the next few days will net players some free in-game loot.
PUBG Corporation made the announcement, and the apology, Thursday on Twitter. As a means of making amends, players will receive an in-game hat for their characters--a beanie that also sports headphones--as well as 20,000 BP, or Battlegrounds Points, PUBG's in-game currency. Those points can be spent on more cosmetic items for characters as well.
We sincerely apologize for the negative experience caused by our recent server connectivity and matchmaking related issues. As compensation, we will be gifting all PC players the Black Beanie with Headphones item along with 20,000 BP. Log in to PUBG by 5pm PDT on Oct 23 to claim. pic.twitter.com/CW5L8nf25z— PUBG (@PUBG) October 18, 2018
The free stuff won't be available forever, though. Players need to tune into PUBG by 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET on October 23 (or 1 AM BST on October 24) to receive the goodies--after that, they're gone.
The good news is, there's a decent incentive to hop into PUBG and get your free loot over the next few days. Starting Thursday, PUBG is running a 50v50 event called Platoon Mode, which sees players take each other on in massive teams. It's similar to 50v50 events in battle royale competitor Fortnite, with players joining 10-person squads to make huge 50-player teams.
The Platoon Mode event starts at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET Thursday for PC players (and at 3 AM BST on Friday).
