Smartphone gaming has become more than just popular in the last few years and with the advent of PUBG Mobile, it has almost become a phenomenon. The mobile game itself has become more popular than its PC version. Since its launch, PUBG Mobile has seen a lot of updates, and now Tencent Games is getting ready to introduce the fourth map to the game called Vikendi, which incidentally is already available on PC Test Server.
Now it seems PUBG Mobile will also be introducing a Prime and Prime Plus membership system to the game. According to a report by Beebom, the features were spotted on the activity tab of the game with rewards for Daily Missions on the beta version of 0.10.0 of PUBG Mobile that was released on Monday. Clicking the respective tabs redirect to Prime and Prime Plus subscription tabs in the game. The monthly membership of Prime is priced at $0.99 (Rs 70.99 approximately) per month, and Prime Plus has a discount for the first month which brings down the regular $9.99 (Rs 716 approximately) per month to $4.99 (Rs 358 approximately).
On signing up for Prime, users will immediately get 150UC, and other rewards with 10UC for logging in everyday. As for the Prime Plus membership, users will be immediately given 300UC, and other rewards with 20UC for logging in everyday.
There has been no official word on the present topic from Tencent Games, in which case we will have to wait for the 0.10.0 update of PUBG Mobile to go live to see for ourselves. PUBG Mobile has generally been behind Fortnite in terms of revenue earned despite having a larger player base. Prime memberships may just be the solution PUBG Mobile needs to overcome this deficit.
