Have you been itching to try Playerunknown's Battlegrounds? Particularly since many streamers are participating in Blue Halo's charity event? The popular early access title finally has a respite at list price early this morning, thanks to a 20% off coupon code that works at digital retailer GMG.
This is a good chance for PC gamers who have been sitting on the sideline - enjoying watching unexpected victories on YouTube and beyond - as there hasn't been a deal on the game since its debut earlier this March. In fact, we initially didn't expect any discounts to be available until the six-month mark given the game's popularity
The Latest Playerunknown's Battlegrounds Deal
Update: the coupon for PUB looks to be expired. New code below is 20% off and may work on select accounts.

- Get unique code here (login required)
- Expires Nov 01, 2017
Update 10/20/17: New coupon code gets you a 20% off discount. It's not as large as the previous 25% off but it's as good as a discount gets since the game has now exploded into popularity. You'll need to login to generate your own unique 20% off code (which incidentally works on Cuphead as well).
Here's how to get the PUB deal on PC (as of writing) if the bullet points above aren't self-explanatory. Click here to visit the digital retailer Green Man Gaming. At GMG, you'll find the game for the same list price everywhere else - $29.99. Add the game to your cart and go through the registration process. Once in the second phase of checkout, scroll a bit down and click on the "Vouchers" tab.
In the Vouchers/Coupon tab, enter code generated from this page and click on the "Apply" button. You should now see the price drop 20% to $23.99. Click proceed to payment and once you finish, you'll receive the Steam key instantly on-screen, in email, and you can also find it in your account profile under "your purchases."
For those unaware, GMG is an authorized distributor for Bluehole Studios, making it an official key straight from the developer/publisher of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.
The game, of course, is an Early Access title, so Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is still in active development by the Korean developer/publisher Bluehole Studios. That said, since it became available to the public on March 23 the game has wildly exceeded all expectations. Currently, and for at least the last month, it has been the third most played game on Steam behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2.
With over 2 million copies sold and a current on-going charity drive, Playeunknown's Battlegrounds is going to be the de facto gaming title on the PC for the remainder of 2017, at the very least.
