In early July, Krafton announced the arrival of a joint event with K-pop group Blackpink on PUBG Mobile , but didn’t give us many details on the content of that event. This week, we found out the name of the band’s new song, as well as the items that will be included in the event.
BLACKPINK’s ‘THE VIRTUAL’ concert series features the group’s new song ‘Ready For Love’, where they take the virtual stage for the first of two groundbreaking events.
The events will take place July 22-23 and July 29-30 in North and South America, and July 23-24 and July 30-31 in the rest of the world. This weekend features the first series of events where players will experience the global hits the band is famous for, as well as the debut of a special new track.
The first event will also give BLACKPINK fans new ways to support their K-pop idols. Players can obtain custom outfits that the group will wear during their in-game performance, available until August 31 . BLINKs can also access the new BLACKPINK Voice Pack, with never-before-heard voice commands from Jisso, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa, usable in-game!
Players can secure their free ‘THE VIRTUAL’ in-game tickets and pre-load the Concert Resource Pack now to get ready for the show.
Players will be able to watch BLACKPINK X PUBG MOBILE 2022 IN-GAME CONCERT: [THE VIRTUAL] during the dates and times below.
To celebrate the fans who joined the show, PUBG MOBILE and BLACKPINK have unlocked exclusive in-game and real-world events and prizes to reach audience milestones as they aim to set a new world record for the biggest music show in a video game.
So, ready to enjoy the show?

PUBG Mobile announces BLACKPINK’s first free virtual concert
Fortnite seems to have set a trend that has spread to other battle royales: virtual shows. Since the Epic Games game held its first show with Marshmello, we’ve seen Free Fire also following this trend, and now, it’s PUBG’s turn to also bet on events of this type.
Last year, the game PUBG: Battlegrounds announced an event in partnership with the K-pop group BLACKPINK , which brought exclusive items from the band to players, but this year, PUBG Mobile will be holding a virtual concert with the girls.
Through an official announcement, we learned that several concerts will take place in the game between July 23rd and 24th, followed by new performances between July 30th and 31st (apparently, the events will be released separately in each region). Players will be able to grab free tickets to the virtual shows starting July 15th, in addition to having to download a special package in advance to watch the show.
It’s not yet clear how the show will be put together, but it’s possible that we’ll see avatars for each of the BLACKPINK members. Additionally, players will be able to obtain the outfits worn by the band starting July 23rd and wear them on the battlefield until August 31st.
The show coincides with the band’s return to the music charts. The group’s latest album was released in 2020, but they aim to release new music in August of this year.
Tencent Games claims that the virtual show will feature a “Special Song and a new music video, made especially for this collaboration”.
So, ready to enjoy the show?

This week, Krafton announced a special event in PUBG with K-pop group BLACKPINK , where we will have several in-game cosmetic items featuring the iconic South Korean singers.
In addition to the event, the developer also confirmed that the game will be free between August 10th and 16th, which confirms the rumor that the studio may be conducting a survey to make the game permanently free , just like its competitors Fortnite and Apex. Legends.
PUBG is holding a free-to-play week between August 10-16.
I've prev stated last month, that the battle royale game is going to use this F2P week to gauge player responses; they've been trying to go F2P for a while now. pic.twitter.com/F5YtTYhN9h

Finally, we must point out that the game seems to have changed its name, from being known only as PUBG to PUBG: Battlegrounds. The change was made on the game’s Steam page, as well as on social media, which is quite curious, considering that the acronym PUBG stands for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds — so can we consider the game now called PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Battlegrounds?
Do you think PUBG: Battlegrounds will be permanently free?
