In addition to the F2P transition, Update 15.2 is now live in PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. Update 15.2 introduces Tactical Gear, a new category of in-game items that provide new and existing players with various options for improving their in-game performances that do not involve pure gunplay. But that’s not all. See below for a full rundown of major features added to the game with Update 15.2. The full Update 15.2 Patch Notes are available HERE.
When PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS launched into Steam Early Access in 2017, it popularized the battle royale game genre.
