PUBG Corp. Apologizes for the BP Mistake, Will Offer Compensation

PUBG players will be getting some BP after a mishap following the 1.0 launch.

Following the first big update of the new year, and second since leaving Early Access on PC in December 2017, the developers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are finally addressing an issue that occurred with BP after the game's 1.0 launch.

PUBG Corp posted a public apology on Steam today as a follow-up to the company's Update #2 post. "We would first like to offer our most sincere apologies to our users who could not fully enjoy the game because BP was not given out properly, an issue which had occurred after the PC 1.0 launch, up until the Dec 27th (Wed) scheduled maintenance."

To compensate, PUBG Corp. announced that BP will be offered to players all around the world. That also means there might be a bit of a delay for the BP compensation to go in effect. "Please be patient, you will get your compensation," says PUBG Corp. Players will have until February 9 at 3:59 PM PT/6:59 PM ET to redeem their BP.

Also, Early Bird key for opening the Desperado and Gamescom crates is available again after the maintenance.

"We are thankful for everyone who waited with patience for the maintenance to be over," concludes PUBG Corp.
