On March 23, PUBG will celebrate its two-year anniversary since its release to the public, and what an amazing two years it has been! We witnessed a gaming revolution with the birth of the battle royale genre, grew and learned together through beta and early access, and watched our game grow from a small title developed by an even smaller team into one of the most played games in the world. We chose this day as our overall PUBG anniversary across all platforms, as we felt it best reflects the humble beginnings of our game.
Reflecting specifically on 2018, we started to address some of the issues that emerged from the lessons we learned as a company, releasing several quality-of-life improvements and refocusing on more stable, higher-quality builds. 2018 also saw the launch of our Training Mode and two brand new maps, the small but wild island map of Sanhok and the beautiful icy landscapes of Vikendi. Finally, we’ve brought the high-intensity PUBG experience to our fans on console with official releases on both XBOX and PlayStation.
Last year also saw the growth of competitive PUBG with our BGA tournament in Berlin, the continuation of Broadcaster Royale tournaments alongside Twitch and the organization of multiple PUBG pro esports competitions around the world.
We are extremely proud of everything we have achieved in 2018 and would not have been able to achieve this without your love and support. As our thanks to you and to celebrate our second anniversary, a special anniversary item will be available in-game for free from 3/27/24 KST on PC and 4/9-5/7 on console. To claim it, go to the in-game store and ‘buy’ the free item on PC or simply log in during the event dates on the console.
But just because we celebrate how far we’ve come doesn’t mean we aren’t aware of what we still have to accomplish. We are currently in the process of planning improvements to our first map, Erangel. The first changes in this process, increasing and improving the loot, have already been implemented to test servers, where we appreciate your feedback.
We can never really thank you for your unparalleled support, but on a day like this we are happy, we are humbled and we are more than ever committed to making PUBG the best game there can be.
Before we go, we want to leave you with a special message from CH Kim, the CEO of PUBG Corporation.
Happy Birthday and we’ll see you at the Battlegrounds!
