Looks like the next season of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is coming soon, as dataminers have uncovered an image of the new pass itself, as well as a look at the selection of items it’ll contain. Season 5 appears to be all about Miramar, and that’s got fans speculating that a major rework for the desert map is on the way.
PUBG Lite, a free-to-play version of the battle royale that first surfaced in Thailand, is coming to Europe next week. It’ll be the first time that PC players will get to experience Fortnite’s famous forerunner for free, which in a twist of fate may be fantastic news for the Pope.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds put battle royale on the map, and Epic’s dive into the genre with Fortnite took plenty of cues from PUBG.

Hot on the heels of PUBG Corp’s announcement that the battle royale will soon be getting a visual facelift, plus some other cool new changes, the developer has now declared a new tournament is coming: the PUBG Nations Cup. The event will be hosted in Seoul, South Korea, in August – and will feature a pretty hefty prize pool to boot.
I think it’s fair to say that PUBG isn’t exactly the prettiest battle royale out there. Fortnite’s colourful murder-island dethroned it first, but Apex Legends and Call of Duty’s Blackout helped really finish it off. Thankfully, it seems as though PUBG Corp was well aware, as some of the game’s older maps are getting a much-needed lick of paint.
After waiting more than a year for the Chinese government to approve PUBG Mobile’s in-game purchases, Tencent has pulled its battle royale from sale, instead pushing players towards a strikingly similar title, dubbed Game for Peace.
