PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) will be free to play next weekend on Steam and will be 50 percent off to purchase.
PUBG was a hit at launch, making USD 11 million in the first three days of its early access release in March 2017, just four months earlier than Fortnite’s release. But patch after patch, players have complained about how the game turned out – and mostly about the company’s decision to add bots.
The number of active players has consistently decreased over the years, according to Steam Charts. The game saw a boost in April, probably because of quarantine, but that number is already decreasing.
PUBG is available to download on Steam, Xbox One, PS4, and Stadia. It also has a mobile version for iOS and Android. It’ll be free to play on Steam between the 4th and the 8th of June.
