The newly introduced micro-transaction system in PLAYERUNKOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS has a pretty good upside and that's free money!
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has taken the gaming world by storm. It’s yet another game that follows the Battle Royale genre. However, it gets a lot of things right that the other games in the genre haven’t and the fact that Twitch streamers are going crazy over it has a lot more people jumping onto the PUBG bandwagon. How many, you ask? Well, as of writing this, it has 574,186 concurrent players, only second to the all time favourite Dota 2.
So yeah, PUBG is really popular and it’s not even free-to-play like Dota 2. To understand why PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is as popular it is, you really need to try it out for yourself. Se we’re going to tell you how you can get PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS for free.
How to get PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS for free
Well, free is a relative term. You need to spend Rs.999 or $20. It’s just that you’ll be getting it back really soon. So the first step is purchasing the game.
The second step is to start playing. Have fun, squad up, a couple of hours into the game, you’ll have accumulated enough Battle Points. Battle Points is the ingame currency which you are rewarded based on your performance in the game. So, if you suck at first person shooter games, then this strategy might not exactly work out for you.
Once you’ve accumulated enough Battle Points you can start purchasing crates. With the most recent patch, PUBG introduced three new crates – Survivor Crate, Wanderer Crate and the Gamescom Invitational Crate. These are part of the new microtransaction system that’s met with much hatred from the community. However, these are also the means towards getting your money back and, thus, getting PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS for free.
The crates start off at 1200 Battle Points for each but the moment you purchase a crate, its price goes up by 1200 Battle Points. Thus, the first crate costs 1200 Battle Points, the second for 2400, the third for 3600 and so on. If you put up these crates up for sale on the Steam Community market, then you can make back about Rs.220 per crate. And the rates for the crates reset every monday, so you can buy two crates with Battle Points every week and make back half the cost of the game. Essentially, you’ll be getting all your money back in two week and thus, getting PUBG for free. See you ingame.
Deep in the suburban jungle roams the only member of the mystical species, Barbarianicus Ass-kick-us. This super awesome creature carries with it the answers to none of life's mysteries. Then what on earth could be so awesome about him? Being able to binge-game for countless hours and exercise remarkable restraint over his penchant for sarcasm around members of lesser species are just some of qualities that make him likeable...really likeable. xD
