No, they're not party hats, but everyone who logs into PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds will receive an anniversary ball cap in thanks for their support of the game for the last two years. Players simply "visit the in-game store and "purchase" the free item on PC or simply log in during the event dates on console". In addition, the PUBG team shared a special message from CH Kim, the company's CEO.
Reflecting on 2018 specifically, we began to tackle some of the issues that came with the lessons we’ve learned as a company, releasing several quality of life improvements and recommitting to higher quality, more stable builds. 2018 also saw the launch of our Training Mode and two brand new maps, the small but savage island map of Sanhok and the beautiful icy landscapes of Vikendi. Lastly, we brought the high intensity PUBG experience to our fans on console with official releases on both XBOX and PlayStation.
But just because we’re celebrating how far we’ve come doesn’t mean we’re not aware of what we still need to accomplish. We’re currently deep into planning improvements to our first map, Erangel. The first changes in this process, increasing and improving loot, have already deployed to test servers, where we welcome your feedback.
