Update 22.2 starts the celebration of the 6th anniversary!
03/09/2023 - The new update 22.2 for PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS has been revealed! It introduces the new supply pack weapon FAMAS and balance adjustments to weapons like the AUG, M16AF, Mk47 Mutant as well as P90. In addition, PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS celebrates its sixth anniversary this month.
Speaking of PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS' sixth anniversary, this month's update gives players even more reason to celebrate. That's because to kick off the festivities, PUBG is announcing a collaboration with acclaimed toy designer and street art painter Tristan Eaton, who has created a beautiful series of in-game posters for players to admire as they roam through Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok. Tristan's incredible creations are a tribute to all the loyal players who first came to Erangel six years ago, and to all those who have joined since.
Additionally, PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS is hosting a special 6th Anniversary News Event until March 23, where all players can submit their questions and requests to the PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS team. There will be a drawing for 100 winners among all the submitters, who will receive special birthday gifts such as metal posters, postcards, and stickers.
The Intense Battle Royale mode, popular with the community, will be available again on PC and consoles until March 31. For those who missed it this year: Intense Battle Royale is a fast-paced mini Battle Royale LABS mode that retains all the key elements of the traditional Battle Royale mode. However, some factors have been simplified to significantly reduce gameplay time - looting, long-distance travel, number of enemies, and more. These changes will allow players to focus more on the end-game intensity characteristic of Battle Royale mode, as these factors have been minimized.
So, March is packed with exciting updates and this is just the beginning: more information about the complete 6th birthday program will follow soon.
