Every year PUBG celebrates the 1st of April, with some special activity and this time it could not be different: to celebrate the 4-year milestone of the game, KRAFTON, Inc. announced the arrival of PLAYEROMNOMS BATTLEGROUNDS (POBG), a game created for the classic arcades of the 1990s, but that brings the soul and challenge of the original PLAYERUNKNOWNS BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG), now with a totally redesigned look for the present day.

The game will be available between today (1st) and April 12th for PC versions, and between April 8th and 12th for consoles, within PUBG itself.


Originally launched in 1991, POBG is a top-down shooter whose objective is to defeat an army of heavily armed chickens that try to dominate everything they see ahead. With a pleasant visual style and a strong comedy tone, the game gave birth to the first versions of what would become the maps of Erangel, Karakin and Sanhok, in addition to inspiring the creation of PUBG.

“The original POBG had a problem before it was released in arcades across the US,” said Herman Havoc, PUBG’s development leader. “An undiscovered defect in the manufacture of the motherboards led to a series of fires and power outages across the country, but that happened in the 1990s. No one was hurt, but we still needed to recover and destroy all known POBG cabinets. But the game was too good to keep it still, so we figured out how to make it work on modern, ready-made hardware, now you can play it on PUBG. One game within another. ”

The celebrations, however, do not stop there: to celebrate this surprise launch, in partnership with the KFC network, PUBG prepared a series of activities with the distribution of prizes, through several influencers, namely: aXt, CarolSG, Cid (Unsaved), Gaules, Magalzão, Netenho, Neves, Novela Told, Nyvi Estephan, Pava, Gusang, Rebeca Trans, Samira Close, Shevii, SkipNhO, Tecnosh, TheDarkness, BigHead, Pansa, Abak, PutuDonald, RomanovGamer, NecronAQN, Sayuri Mattar, sparkingg, DJMaloka, ReleeN, dilera, Lula, Gabriel Sotobello and Pabllo Vittar.
