The Joker and Harley Quinn Coming to PUBG

The Joker and Harley Quinn escaped Belle Reve Penitentiary for a Suicide Squad crossover event in PUBG.

Battle Royale genre of games already had enough competitors like Fortnite, Free Fire and H1Z1 to give PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds a run for their money before Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 came out introducing the Blackout mode.

To stay relevant to players these days, PUBG has decided to do a crossover event (or what everyone else thought) with 2016's superhero movie Suicide Squad to generate some hype for the game but it turns out that they were only intending to release new skins.

To be very specific, only the skin of The Joker and Harley Quinn are going to be available and the trailer below showcases how things are going to be.

Although The Joker skin doesn't look anything close to how Jared Leto portrayed the character in Suicide Squad movie except for his garb. His face is just covered with white paint and he is not even sporting his evil grin on his face. In all honesty, it looks horrible.

Harley Quinn doesn't look anything like Margot Robbie either but her resemblance is close enough to the original counterpart compared to her better half. The baseball bat she carries around o her back may serve as a weapon akin to the infamous pan though.

PUBG Corp. didn't go into revealing further detail aside from the announcement trailer on how or if this exclusive appearance of the Clown Prince of Crime and his crazy girlfriend is going to impact the game anyhow.

Back in May 2018, their rival company Epic Games did a limited time Infinity Gauntlet mashup in Fortnite following the release of Avengers: Infinity War movie. Not only PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds joined the party late, all they got for now is two DC villains. Tough luck indeed!

PUBG Corp. Drops Lawsuit Against Epic Games

PUBG Corporation has just dropped their copyright violation lawsuit against Epic Games over Fortnite Battle Royale.

Ever since developers Epic Games have added a "Battle Royale" mode to their sandbox survival game Fortnite, it was obvious that where they took the inspiration from because it was quite on the nose. Then developers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corporation eventually called them out for straight out copying their idea. Then earlier this year, PUBG owners have filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against their rival company, which is dropped after months of debacle over it.

An injunction against Epic Games was filed by the accuser back in January for supposed copyright violation stating the game in question is creating a similar gaming experience for players like PUBG. Now, dropping the case can be for several reasons and both of these game developing companies are partially owned by Tencent Holdings might be one of them. Also, PUBG uses the same Unreal Engine made by Epic Games and that makes it even complicated than it already is.

RELATED: PUBG Gets ‘Event Pass’ Progression System

Initially, Fortnite was struggling with their "Save the World" mode until they decided to introduce a PvP mode that is very much akin to last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, published by Korea-based publisher Bluehole. Although no official statement on this sudden setback is not yet revealed but they might have reached over some settlement that caused the withdrawal of the copyright lawsuit over online battle royale game of their competitor.

People like to play Battle Royale games and there is no denying of it but the way whole gaming industry has been on its tail, it seems a bit of stretch now when big-name titles like Battlefield V and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 announces of having the same mode to their game. Because of their practice of accuse similar games and taking legal action over them, followers trolled them on Twitter when it welcomed Battlefield series to the club by hinting another lawsuit filing maybe on its way.

PUBG is already suffering from a loss of player count for some time despite recently crossing the milestone of selling 50 million units of the game. They completely screwed up the players who supported the game from a primitive stage by not fixing the glitches but heavily focusing on DLC and loot boxes. Whereas, for their free-to-play nature, Fortnite Battle Royale didn't just gained huge popularity but also made a good buck from selling cosmetic items through micro-transactions.

PUBG Gets ‘Event Pass’ Progression System

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is bringing a new progression and reward system called 'Event Pass' this week.

Developers of PUBG Corp. has been up to a new progression system for their last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and they are about to launch it soon. Starting this Friday, they will release an "Event Pass" that will offer players many unlockable items and it will drop as they introduce the long-awaited Sanhok map on PC. Themed on the upcoming map, the pass is going to last for four weeks and this is the way how they are going to deliver premium content in future.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ third and one of the recently anticipated maps Sanhok features a jungle-like environment and is scheduled to drop on June 22. Designed for close quarter combats by keeping the size to a 4x4 KM size, you can expect much more intensity you ever saw in Erangel or Miramar. This is a nice way to keep things fresh and you probably know that by now if you have been playing it in test servers. Hopefully, more change will come and more loot will be found.

We offer you to take a quick glance at PUBG's Sanhok map in the teaser trailer below before heading to it.

This Event Pass presents you many new missions, which are either daily or weekly and some of them are specifically designed to play on Sanhok for you to complete them to increase your level. Leveling up will lead you to unlocking rewards but they are neither tradable nor marketable as PUBG has gotten rid of item trading because of the presence of many third-party marketplace who started abusing this system. Until they could come up with a solution, a temporary restriction is on.

RELATED: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Tequila Sunrise Event

Lately, players have been unlocking contents through a crate and key system that the developers thought to be a meaningful way. Even though it sort of screws over their consumers in many ways, they somehow believe that finding rare items in this way can be "extremely satisfying" for some reason. They even mentioned that at one point, the devs even considered releasing content as paid DLC but that will simply divide the whole player base into two different groups that has access to the maps or not.

RELATED: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Event Mode Announced

It will also keep a lot of players from enjoying updated contents and besides, PUBG Corp. has promised at The Game Awards 2017 that they will provide all maps for free. So, an Event Pass is created, which is much like a rewarding method called Battle Pass from their rival multiplayer online battle royale game Fortnite. According to their own statement, Event Pass is introduced as a progression system that they can keep track of. Said to be available from June 22, a price was not mentioned yet.

However, if you choose not to purchase the Event Pass, you can still enjoy those premium contents for a limited time. So, paying for it lets you permanently acquire all the cool stuff and exclusive rewards. If you buy it on a later time, you will still earn all the rewards through tracking your mission progress. Apparently, many players from their community have been requesting them for a progression system that can be tracked and we only wonder why they don't focus on other problems!

RELATED: PUBG Corp Suing Epic Games For Copyright

PUBG Corporation also need to keep in mind that despite selling 50 million copies of the game, PUBG has lost almost half of its player base due to developer's lack of effort in fixing the game and focusing on cosmetic item releases. The game's Korea-based publisher Bluehole is currently in a lawsuit battle with Epic Games for copyright infringement, which should also be a matter of concern. The game was released into Steam's Early Access in March 2017 and then released for PC and Xbox One on December 2017.

After throwing accusations for copying their game, developer studio PUBG Corporation has finally filed a lawsuit against Epic Games for copyright infringement. PUBG Corp is a subsidiary for Korea-based publisher Bluehole that is responsible for multiplayer online battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

The accused company has not made any comment on the lawsuit yet and Seoul Central District Court will decide whether or not they have copied aspects from PUBG.

Both Fortnite and PUBG have millions of players engaged in online multiplayer battles these days. Originally inspired from a Japanese thriller film Battle Royale, PUBG debuted in March 2017 on Steam's Early Access before being fully released on December, 2017 for PC and Xbox One. Then Fortnite's Battle Royale mode was released by Epic Games in September when their "Free The World" PvE mode was constantly failing to get any footing or recognition.

Because of their free-to-play nature, it soon gained huge popularity and a massive fan-following, which their rival game was lacking. They were also making some sweet cash out of micro-transaction for cosmetic items. While Fortnite was breaking into mainstream media with guest appearance from rapper Drake or having a timed crossover event on the release of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was slowly dying for their compatibility problem, lack of optimization and loads of bugs.

RELATED: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Tequila Sunrise Event

Despite sharing traits like dropping 100 players into a selected map to survive till the last person or a team, Fortnite also pushes you to build fort and craft various items for better defense, which is completely absent in PUBG. Although, they have no problem with Epic Games adapting a Battle Royale mode for their game, PUBG Corp is concerned with Fortnite trying to repeat what they did to deliver similar experience to players and they already pay a huge buck to them as royalties for using Unreal Engine 4.

Considering those above mentioned points, it really seems very inconsiderate for Epic to using intellectual properties of their client.

However, people will still abandon the game if they do not prioritize fixing tons of existing problems their community has been complaining about from the very beginning.

Although PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has achieved feats like selling over 30 Million copies and crossed records of having 3 million concurrent players on Steam, they have had reached a point earlier where they weren't growing. All they did for last few months is to add loot boxes rather than some actual contents. In the meantime, free-to-play title Fortnite of Epic Games stole their thunder by breaking streaming record on Twitch and having rapper Drake join them in a match.

We are actually pretty thankful that Fortnite Battle Royale has managed to take the limelight from PUBG for a while and now they are alerted about the situation. Otherwise, we would have pinned to wall with that gambling-oriented, barely finished version of third person shooter for years and PUBG Corp. wouldn't give a damn about it. Now the developers have suddenly become so productive with new ideas and launched a couple of weekly events like Tequila Sunrise and War Mode.

These ideas worked so good with their audience that many of them are demanding to make some of these temporary test modes to permanent. All that and the game finally work their way up to get players to have a map selection. Xbox One users are still stuck with the Erangel map whereas PC version got to try out Miramar map for some time now. However, they are working on that too and almost finished but have not set any exact date for it yet.

Soon, map selection is going to get a lot more crucial than ever because PUBG developers have been working for their third map, Codename: Savage and as they are nearing to completion, it is available now for test on Steam. Considering this one one-quarter the size than the other two, it really is far from finished but we do understand that they hastily released it for early feedback to improve it and to convince you that they had other things to show except for “Equinox Crate” loot boxes.

PUBG Corp. states that what they envision for Savage map will need months to get complete and one of their ideas is to add a huge cave where players will jump right in their parachute. The concept of base jumping, where you fling with a parachute strapped on your back off a cliff is adapted here but players will be jumping into the biggest underground cave they can think of in this case, which sounds a lot like Cave of Swallows from Mexico.

In their recent trip to Thailand, a developer team went seeking inspiration to merge with their ideas for their new map. There were Concept Artists, 3D Environment Artists and Technical Artists within the team to study real location. One of their objectives was to shot photos of real-world areas or objects from every possible angle and convert them to in-game 3D objects through Photogrammetry. They will also take player's feedback to evolve the map further and making their experience unique.

Also, deep inside the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, the team finds Thailand's own version of Cave of Swallows, which goes by the name Phraya Nakhon Cave. Since their planned Savage map was Southeast Asian-themed, this one fits perfectly for what they were looking for. They came up with a cool imagery to depict their vision and as it will be converted into an in-game asset, you are about to experience an amazing entrance. The cave will be made in a way that lets players to dive straight through the big enough opening of the cave and join the fight.

From their recent endeavors, it would seem like PUBG Corp. is up to making some short-term goals like selling loot boxes for money rather than focusing on updates that will possibly fix the game for better. The way the developers rushed with the release of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for mobile and Xbox One has clearly shows that they are just trying to spread their name everywhere as fast as possible so that no one can take them over but Fortnite already did that.

Besides, there are multiple upcoming titles that are bringing Battle Royale mode in their games in some way or another. Triple-A video games like Battlefield V and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is already on that list, who will introduce their unique take on the genre. When they will hit the market with more polished gameplay and improved features, PUBG will surely be in tough competition. If the tendency of focusing on loot box and not working on content remains their prime goal, their downfall will be imminent.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds War Event Mode

Last week, PUBG Corporation had successfully held "Tequila Sunrise" event mode and announced a War mode for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds which will be accessible in custom games as the developers finish testing. This is perhaps the most intense version of Battle Royale that they have envisioned till date. Stretching to see how far they could take the game concept to keep things interesting to players, PUBG Corp. came up with deathmatch-style battles in War event mode.

By far, War is the most diverse mode in all of PUBG history you have ever partaken in aside from their main server. That's right! War will not show up in the game's regular selection but if you can create custom servers, you can see it. If a War server is available then just about anyone can join for some action. Remember when Battlegrounds used to be a mod in first person tactical military shooter ARMA from Bohemia Interactive? This is a lot like that as a callback to old days.

The thing everyone would appreciate about War is that, dying during a fight doesn't put you out of the field right away. You can "Re-Spawn" at your place by jumping from the plane after you are killed and pick up the fight from where you were left off. This means, you can now participate for longer than before in each of these 15-minute rounds. You and your 10-man squad are allowed in a small piece of Erangel map to take out two other teams and the map doesn't shrink on you. Isn't that great?

Whenever you re-spawn, you will be equipped with one random pistol, an assault rifle (AR) or designated marksman rifle (DMR), a level one helmet, a level one vest and a grenade. You can also scour in those buildings of the map for additional loot and care packages that drops after every 90 seconds but keep it in mind that by then, the shootout will already begin and bullets will be even flying into your direction. Even though you are taken out, rest of your team can carry on till you re-join them in a few seconds.

Since teams are consists with 10 players, you are allowed to bring 9 from your friends list or auto matching system will do it for you. You can also end up with less squad members depending on your matchmaking situation. Each team will be competing for 200 points to win and the first squad to score that takes the cake. Every kill will earn you 3 points and a single point for a knock out or reviving any of your teammates. If no team manages to score 200 points within 15-minute time limit, then the one with highest score will win the match.

War mode is available from April 12, at 7 PM PDT and will run till April 15, 7 PM PDT for a full weekend. Other things to note are there is no region lock, weather is fixed at “sunny”, Redzone and Killer Spectator Mode will be disabled as well. As the safe zone is limited, you have fewer places to hide your skin. So, we suggest you don't worry about getting shot and go out there to take out enemy teams. Also, North America, Europe, Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania are exclusive to a first-person variant of War mode.

PUBG Corporation presents last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is released on Early Access for PC and Xbox One in 2017. There are two versions of PUBG also available for playing it on Android and iOS devices. Although War event mode is here among us for a limited time for PUBG Corp. for testing purpose, we seriously hope that is becomes permanent, because it can probably help developers bring back loyal fans of the game into the festival of Battle Royale.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Tequila Sunrise Event

We had an early announcement from developer PUBG Corporation on Steam community that they will launch limited-time event mode within an update for PC and Xbox One very soon. This timed event and a new Custom gameplay mode will shake things up for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for good. Already made a name with the unique concept of Battle Royale to put on a map ad fight to a standstill for victory and a Chicken Dinner, it already became one of the top selling video games of all time.

Even after pulling that feat, PUBG had no time for rest as its insane popularity soon lured out a couple of competitors in the market, most of which are just different versions of rip-off of the original. Fortnite Battle Royale of Epic Games however, managed to become their main rival after so long when they recently broke record for most number of concurrent viewers on Twitch and currently ruling the charts.

Many believe that Fortnite's biggest plus point is the free-to-play nature of the game and PUBG Corp. should do something similar. Epic Games also had a timed event called Blitz Mode for Fortnite Battle Royale a short while ago. The developers have been at work for some time and they even put out a new map for beta testing already. Clearly, that wasn't enough and now here is "Tequila Sunrise" event mode for fans with a new challenge.

According to PUBG Official Blog, Tequila Sunrise event starts on April 5, at 7 PM PDT and will run till April 8, 7 PM PDT for a total of 72 hours. Four player squads will be competing for Battle Royale supremacy on Miramar map with only shotguns and melee weapons for combat. There will be no other weapons to use or maps to explore and don't expect for any Care Package to drop during matches. Matching is by default "On" but you can simply turn Auto Matching off if you are not a fan of the feature.

A brand-new game mode called War is currently accessible in custom games and the Savage map is currently in-testing. War is a much more intense version of Battle Royale taking place on Erangel map and pitting all contestants in a circle for shootout. Now, it completely depends on the developer whether or not they will play with the possibilities to make this thing big or drop at some point though. PUBG needs to keep grinding as they just won't have to topple only Fortnite but many others in line.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Event Mode Announced

Ever since developer PUBG Corporation has brought their last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to Steam, the game has been single handedly moping the floor clean with other battle royale titles out there until the sudden rise of Fortnite lately when rapper Drake decided to drop in. According to a recent Steam community post, PUBG is going to join the special event madness of battle royale games very shortly.

An update for PC and Xbox One is coming soon as limited-time event modes, which is also designed to improved performance. In general, players can experience Solo, Duo and Squad modes in their regular play and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds’ Event Mode will be an ever-changing Custom Game. Developers will be trying and testing new things within this short period of events every once in a while to see how it goes with players to understand their reception towards the game.

This is a huge step-up from the regular public matches you mostly play but since all of this is supposed to lead to more exciting things the developers have in store for players. However, the last part really depends on the perspective of things. The initial limited time mode won't be anything fancy but rather more basic except for the fact that it will have teams of eight players competing against each other. To make things a bit more interesting, the rifle drop ratio during these matches will be twice as much than usual.

Sounds like the devs are already planning to rip the old rules apart and introducing new twists out of their sleeves. The only downside we can see right now is that Event Mode is dependent on matchmaking and instead of letting you group-up with your friends, you've got to hang out with random strangers. Have we mentioned yet that they will add a flare gun for the next limited-time mode? Well, we just did now.

Currently, Fortnite Battle Royale is having their very own special timed event Blitz Mode and Epic Games have added this from last December. It happened just the time when PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds came out of Early Access on PC and is finally released for Xbox One. Though PUBG Corp. haven't dropped any official date for their event to launch but hopefully, it will be live on game’s test server soon right after they finish testing.
