Players are very excited to play PUBG for free and get a variety of benefits. Also, the new players will have additional perks. While the PC version of the game will finally be free to play, they will lock certain things behind Battlegrounds Plus membership. However, there is some good news for those who have the game's premium edition. They will get the PUBG – Special Commemorative Pack, a free Battlegrounds Plus upgrade, and other in-game incentives. So, let’s look at what gifts we will get to play PUBG for free.
