PUBG's PC and console audience might be getting exclusive content as part of a collaboration with K-Pop Group BLACKPINK.
Last year, PUBG Mobile players received access to a limited-time event featuring the same K-pop group with in-game cosmetics and other prizes up for grabs.
The event will kick off on 4 August for PC players and 12 August for console players.

BLACKPINK is not a stranger to high profile collaborations with artists like Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga partnering with the K-Pop brand. While PUBG did tease the upcoming collaboration, we do not know what’s in store for fans just yet.

What to expect from the PUBC X BLACKPINK Collaboration

Last year, PUBG Mobile players had a two-week window to complete in-game missions to earn “support points” and unlock in-game outfits including the popular Killer Cadet Set and the Adorable Panda Suit. PUBG PC players can expect something similar with limited time cosmetics becoming available in-game. There were also autographed merchandise available for grabs with the PUBG Mobile event and players might be treated to something similar for the upcoming event for PUBG’s PC and console audience.

In the previous high-profile collaboration in PUBG PC, Tottenham Hotspur soccer player Son Heung-Min collaborated with the game and players got the opportunity to compete for a level three helmet signed by the player. There were also other in-game cosmetics on offer as part of the event. The upcoming PUBG X BLACKPINK event might do something similar and fans will have wait it and see what Krafton has in store for the community.
