Developer PUBG Corporation noted that over 50 million units of PUBG have been sold across the PC and Xbox One to date, and obviously with this price reduction it's hoping to expand the player base further.

Alongside Sanhok's PC pass, PUBG is adding in a Fortnite-style battle pass, created to be the main way players unlock new content themed around the new map.

The PUBG sale is now live, so you can get the game at the discounted price by heading to the game's Steam page and purchasing it there.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds draws around 87 million players per day across all devices and 227 million per month.

For the first time since its debut in March 2017, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is selling at a discount on Steam. Check out our best battle royale games. So in other PUBG news today, fans of the game will welcome the prospect of a third map, dubbed Sanhok, which is available from Friday. 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.

PUBG Corp revealed it had previously been toying with introducing premium content through paid DLC, but instead made a decision to settle on this system. It'll be rolled out alongside Sanhok on June 22.

In a blog post, the developer explained that the intent behind the current crate and key system was to allow players to unlock content "in meaningful ways", and bizarrely pointed out that the system "can feel extremely satisfying whenever you unlock rare items". The new feature gives players a chance to enjoy a "trackable progression-related system" that unlocks rewards through game play.

PUBG Corp said that players will be able to play the missions if they're hesitant about buying the pass, and mission progress will always be tracked.
