PUBG: Battlegrounds will up the ante for your squad with drones and another way to win a fight. The drone surveillance feature is highlighted in a new teaser. Games like PUBG: New State already have drones to give players a tactical advantage. According to Krafton, PUBG Battlegrounds will be free for all users starting January 12. Although the game is free to download and play, Krafton will limit certain items and game modes to paying players.
A teaser video has been posted on the PUBG: Battlegrounds Facebook page. The short clip shows a set of players hiding and planning their moves. Unknowingly, they are being watched by a surveillance drone controlled by another player. A similar teaser was also tweeted earlier this week in which the developers share a clip that showed a radio-controlled surveillance drone, a remote control, a map, as well as a bag.
The feature is set to arrive in PUBG: Battleground on January 12, when the game will switch to a free-to-play model, according to Krafton. The game is priced at Rs. 999 on Steam in India. Although it is free to download, certain elements as well as certain game modes will be exclusive to paying players.
Meanwhile, Krafton continues its strict countermeasures against players who cheat in Battlegrounds Mobile India. It banned more than 71,000 accounts in the week ending January 2. The developer has already banned more than two lakh accounts in a month. These players’ devices are permanently banned from the Battle Royale mobile game.
