What We Are Bringing Back...

Prepare yourself to relive the nostalgic moments as we're bringing back the features that once defined the very essence of PUBG on our OG Erangel! This is the ultimate life-and-death opportunity, so be sure to jot down and learn all the details before the official adventure begins in May.

  • Remember that gloomy, melancholic weather that you secretly enjoyed? Meet the foggy and rainy weather on the battlegrounds once more.

  • Missed the days when you had to rush to grab your favorite weapon? Bench weapons are reinstated on the starting island; seize your weapon before the supply runs dry!

  • We've even dialed back the clock on the UI. Upon entering Erangel Classic, you'll be greeted by the familiar sight of a vintage world map & minimap, the match start timer, and the charmingly tacky font and graphics. It's a nostalgic journey that transports you to the past.

  • The firearms carry a certain nostalgic touch, too... That's right, we've reduced recoil! While not an exact replica of the old recoil, players will still be able to reminisce about those early PUBG days.
  • Search for the Tommy Gun in the Care Package, just like in the old days.

  • It seems that knocking down enemies will require more time, just as it used to.
  • We've also thrown some clothes and helmets on the ground.

We're taking it back to where it all began–but with a few modern tweaks! Erangel Classic preserves the essence of the earlier version of Erangel, its distinctive appearance and atmosphere, all while delivering the enjoyable gameplay experiences that players have grown accustomed to. Check out the Patch Notes on May 13 for full details on all the throwbacks.  

We’ll see you on the battlegrounds!
