PUBG: Battlegrounds has been around for a while now, and over the years, it has gone through several iterations, and now, it steps into its next phase as a free-to-play title. However, the transition to free-to-play isn’t going to be easy as the devs shared in a letter yesterday the improvements the game has made and will continue to make, in terms of the anti-cheat solution in preparation for new players.

One of the many concerns that were raised after the announcement of PUBG: Battlegrounds going free-to-play was how exactly will older, ‘legacy’ players will be compensated for having paid for the title. As a little compensation, legacy players will receive rewards and benefits that include the PUBG- Special Commemorative Pack, which includes the new Battlegrounds Plus upgrade.
