PUBG Corp. is adding more items to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds new Event Pass as a response to negative feedback from players.
The Event Pass was unveiled earlier this week and gives players the chance to earn a number of temporary and permanent items for completing missions and leveling the pass up.
Players who choose not to purchase the pass will only gain access to one permanent item in the form of a parachute skin, while players who choose to pay for Premium can get up to 17 exclusive cosmetic items permanently. Fans have expressed their displeasure over only being able to get one item out of the pass, so the developer has added two more cosmetic items for both free and Premium players.
“Many of you seem pretty excited about the 17 permanent, exclusive cosmetic items included with the Event Pass (including the full Jailbird set, Escapee set, Prison Guard uniforms, and Beach set),” the developer wrote. “But we’ve also heard from many of you that you’d like the chance to earn more permanent items, even if you aren’t paying for the Event Pass. We want the event to feel fun and meaningful for all our players, so we’re introducing two new items that you can permanently unlock for free.
“We hope you like these new rewards! Remember that all players who reach certain levels will earn a free nickname change and a permanent, exclusive parachute skin as well.”
PUBG Corp. also explained its reasoning behind adding temporary items for players who choose to buy the pass. According to the developer, the team “wanted to let players just try out some of the most popular items from crates we’ve released in the past.”
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ Event Pass launches today on PC alongside the new Sanhok map.
