PUBG’s Sanhok Map is Out With New Exploitative F2P-Style Mechanics

20180622013904 1
If you didn’t feel like the random crate drops with various cosmetic skins that could usually only be unlocked with purchasable keys were already exploitative enough, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was just updated on Windows with the Sanhok map and this free-to-play style event pass.

The game also has missions and login bonuses, but some of those are only available if you buy the event pass, which you shouldn’t. I’d been trying Sanhok before it was released, and it’s good, small, fun. For those times when you can’t devote 40 minutes to getting to the top ten before being owned by the silenced shotgun sniper xXxLuBu69xXx.

They’ve also added a towed banner advertisement to the back of the plane that drops you off in paradise, lovely:

Of course there’s also an ad on the top of your parachute. PUBG Corp should at least go the Team Fortress 2 route and drop the cost to free if they’re going to switch to a free-to-play business model. Paying $30 and then getting this crap is a really bad look.
