PUBG originally came out as an early access title last year in March and ever since people have been jumping into the game in order to experience Battle Royale. Since then the game has not been discounted but it is going for $19.99. If you were on the fence regarding whether or not you should get the game or if you wanted to gift it to a friend, then now might be a good time to do so.
The game has sold 50 million units around the world and it is not only available on PC and console but on mobile devices as well. There are millions of players that play PUBG on their phone. According to the official the PUBGannouncement on Steam:
“Today we’ve got a very big announcement: With Xbox and PC sales combined, PUBG has now sold over 50 million units worldwide. With PUBG Mobile included, there are now over 400 million registered PUBG players worldwide. Over 87 million people play PUBG every day across all our platforms. Thank you to our more than 400 million players worldwide across PC, Xbox, and Mobile. In honor of this milestone, PUBG on Steam is now on sale at a discount for the first time ever.”
While the game has been doing well, the recent trend is that people are tired of the development team not doing what they want and players are leaving the game. While there are still plenty of players that play the game, it is unfortunate that the original players that bought the game when it was still in early access are starting to leave.
I myself bought the game when it was first in early access and have seen it grow to where it is today and it is safe to say that the developers have made plenty of mistakes along the way but after more than 500 hours of playing PUBG I have deleted it and I am not looking forward to getting into the game again until there is a major update.
“To celebrate these new milestones, we’re putting PUBG on sale on Steam from June 19th (later today!) through July 5th. If you want to pick up the game for the first time or gift it to a friend, you’ll be able to grab it for just $19.99 (33.33% off the normal price).”
If you are interested in buying the game then the discounted price is a good deal.
