Developer PUBG Corporation noted that over 50 million units of PUBG have been sold across the PC and Xbox One to date, and obviously with this price reduction it's hoping to expand the player base further.

In addition, devs are introducing a brand new way for players to unlock items in PUBG with a new system called the Event Pass that will arrive along with the Sanhok map later this week.

To celebrate the occasion, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is on sale for $19.99 on Steam, where it is regularly priced at $29.99. That's for the full game, although the offer is only available for a limited time - until July 5 - so you want to act sooner rather than later. In the other battle royale game, players can rank up their Battle Pass to earn some rewards for free, but the bulk of the unlockables are in its paid version. It includes both the Erangel and Miramar as well as the new Sanhok map which is due on June 22nd. For a discount compared to the normal price, you can send this game to a friend as a not-so-subtle hint that you'd like some more people to play PUBG with. The company today revealed a new way to earn cosmetics, and it's calling it the Event Pass. The pass will contain daily, weekly, and map specific missions to complete, and will last for four weeks from this Friday.

PUBG Corp said that players will be able to play the missions if they're hesitant about buying the pass, and mission progress will always be tracked. PUBG Corp. announced on Tuesday the upcoming implementation of a Battle Pass system on PC, a day after implementing a similar-yet-different system on mobile.

In this lengthy Steam Community update, the developer explains that it once considered charging for DLC-"including new maps"-but decided not to divide its players".
