Currently priced at $29.99, PlayerUnknown’s Battleground was launched in the last quarter of 2017 on the PC. Its amazing gameplay has been one of the reasons why battle royale games are so popular these days.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions were released later in 2018. Just last month, the developers released a new and improved Sanhok map alongside the game’s new season.
Both games will be free to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers starting September 1 until October 5, 2020. In the meantime, the free Playstation Plus games for this month – Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered are still available for download.
