That means you can get a slice of the battle royale action for $19.99 in the USA (around AU$27), rather than $29.99, or £18.08 in the United Kingdom rather than £26.99.

Aside from that, the game will have its first (paid) timed event.

To celebrate these new milestones, we're putting PUBG on sale on Steam from June 19th (later today!) through July 5th. Over 87 million people play PUBG every day across all our platforms.

No price was given for the Sanhok Event Pass, but a price will be announced some time before Friday's launch of the new content. This is a more compact environment, which should make for tense battles, and a new weapon will be made available in conjunction with the fresh map.

Two dead, four injured in Sweden shooting, not terrorism-related
Two men aged 18 and 29 were slain in an internet café near the city centre of Malmö last night, and four others injured. The shooting occurred in the city center, police said, adding that it is not believed to be terror-related.


Of the 400 million players across all current available devices, 50 million copies have been sold between Xbox One and PC.

Players will be able to "temporarily" unlock "many" pieces of content from the pass for free, but you'll need to purchase the Event Pass to permanently unlock the full selection of new cosmetic items. Alongside, PUBG on Steam is also going on sale for a limited period, with a 33 percent discount. However, there is one distinct difference: the Event Pass will last for only about four weeks, unlike Fortnite's 10-week period for its Battle Pass.

The update also includes a number of changes to the UI including an update to the friends list, leaderboard and replay UI improvements, enhancements to pop-ups in the lobby and game sessions, and improvements to the in-game minimap. There are missions players can complete - which will then unlock cosmetic items - you can level up your pass, and even "free players" can get certain items too.
