Originally debuting on Steam Early Access in the beginning of a year ago, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds went pretty quickly from being an unknown entity to one of the main sparks for the battle royale craze now taking over the games industry, and since that time PUBG has seen some incredible growth according to new stats from its development studio. The new discount brings the price of PUBG down to Rs. 669 in India, and $20 in the US. PUBG Corp. further elaborated that over 87 million users play the game every day on all platforms too.

With PUBG's Sanhok map coming to Xbox One soon, expect the Event Pass to follow. The game has now sold over 50 million units worldwide between Xbox One and PC; moreover, when considering the mobile version, the total number of players is over 400 million. A sale on Steam and other distribution platforms should help PUBG reach even more people - although Fortnite is still free-to-play on PC and consoles. As players progress through the content, they will unlock rewards, including a Sanhok-themed item set. The map is half the size of PUBG's first two maps, Erangel and Miramar, offering a more action-packed close quarters experience. The map's weather changes on the fly, and the map assesses remaining numbers of players and player locations before deciding where to shrink the safe zone of the map towards, making it harder to predict where the best place to hide out will be. 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). The QBZ95 is a Sanhok-exclusive, replacing the SCAR-L in the map's loot pool. It is relatively common, and it can hold 30 5.56mm rounds. Spectators can also watch this celebration.
