Fortnite may be grabbing all of the headlines these days but PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a behemoth in its own right. Bluehole, PUBG’s parent company, today revealed that the title has 400 million players globally across the platforms it’s available on. It continues to be one of the most popular titles on the planet and in a bid to bring more players into the action, it’s discounting the PC version of PUBG for a limited time.
The full version of the game is now discounted by 33.33 percent and can be purchased for a limited time for $19.99. It includes both the Erangel and Miramar as well as the new Sanhok map which is due on June 22nd.
It has been just over six months since PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was globally released while it has been a little over 15 months since its early access release. It has now hit the 400 million figures across Xbox One and PC. More than 50 million units of the game have already been sold across Xbox One and PC combined.
Despite its meteoric rise, PUBG continues to face tough competition from Epic Games’ Fortnite, which also happens to be available for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. PUBG is available for mobile devices as well while Fortnite is yet to land on Android and once it does, its popularity will certainly grow even more.
