PUBG, the game that started the battle royale craze, is going to be launched on the platform where the game that surpassed it originates from.

PUBG and Fortnite 's history is a bit of a mess with even a lawsuit being involved, back when PUBG Corp tried to sue Epic Games for supposed copying of the former's systems.

Those who played both games know very well that the only similarity between the two is that they are both battle royales but PUBG was the one that got everyone interested in the genre. 

Meanwhile, Fortnite won the popularity contest because Epic Games provided better support for their game and the lawsuit was seen as a desperate move from a company that was shedding active players at a record rate.

Now that PUBG is under Krafton's roof, the game and the people in charge of it are looking forward to a brighter future, with fewer conflicts involved so while ironic, it is not unfathomable that PUBG will join Fortnite's platform.

The store page on Epic Games Store is already up and PUBG itself will become available to play on December 8, 2022.

Before that happens, you can start the pre-load so it's ready just as it unlocks. Additionally, there is the launch promotion on EGS that involves the Founder's Pack, which can be claimed for free until January 5, 2023.

It includes a few cosmetics to start you off on the fresh account and since there is no charge, there is no reason not to claim it.
