Introducing a new PUBG currency, G-Coin!
Currently, you’re forced to make individual cash purchases each time you want to pick up something from the store. With G-Coin, you’ll be able to make a single purchase to add funds to our in-game wallet. From there, buying the items you want is easy and you’ll be spending less time going through confirmations. In this letter, we wanted to take a quick look at G-Coin, how you get it, and some other benefits of the system.
G-Coin can be purchased in the new G-Coin tab in the Store. You’ll use Steam Wallet funds to make the purchase, but from there, purchases in PUBG will deduct from your G-Coin balance.
G-Coin packages are available in quantities ranging from 100 to 10,000. Depending on the package you choose, you’ll be able to earn bonus currency, allowing you to essentially give yourself a discount on things you buy. You can get up to $12 in bonus G-Coin depending on the package you buy, so stock up and save!
You can always check your G-Coin balance in the upper right corner of the lobby.
- Bonus G-Coin is awarded upon purchase of an eligible G-Coin package.
- As of Update 9.1, G-Coin is the only way that you can purchase items in the PUBG store.
Now that we’ve covered the technical stuff, let’s talk about the benefits of what G-Coin allows us to do.
First of all, it gives our teams much more flexibility with rewards. Not only can we offer you bonus G-Coin for making bigger purchases, but we can also use it as a reward directly to players. For example, in this Season 9 survivor pass, you will be able to achieve G-Coins as you climb up the level. Moreover, G-Coin has opened us to a broader window of usage which all are still in the planning stage but we’ll have more information about what we settle on in the future.
One more small perk for our PTS users is that we can now give you G-Coin there to buy store items with. In fact, we already have! PTS should log in to find 10,000 G-Coin in their wallets. Gone are the days where PTS meant bland, boring characters! Sure, this helps us test new items in-game as well but hey, perks are perks.
One last thing, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the obvious and say that any attempts to alter, forge, cheat, or otherwise defraud the G-Coin system will be met with strong penalties, including a permanent ban from the game. The good news is it’s super easy to not do any of that.
G-Coin has been in place on consoles for a while now, so we don’t anticipate many issues adding it to PC, but if you do encounter any please be sure to submit a ticket to Customer Support so that we can get it taken care of as soon as possible.
Thanks, and we hope you enjoy Season 9 of PUBG!
