  • Welcome to TAEGO - TAEGO put players in 1980s South Korea as they battle it out across vast and varied landscapes, ranging from wide-open reed fields to the close quarters of Hosan Prison. The first new 8x8 map in several years, TAEGO also has unique features that are exclusive to the map, including Comeback BR (a second-chance mechanic) and Self AED (as self-revive item). 
  • Introducing “Survivor Pass: TAEGO” - The theme of this Survivor Pass is heavily inspired by the new map, TAEGO. Players can earn a variety of rewards as they progress through 50 levels. But that’s not all - players who play past level 50 can earn bonus rewards, including medals, emblems, and G-Coin.
  • Drive in Style with Hyundai’s Pony Coupe - KRAFTON has partnered with Hyundai to bring the company’s first concept car, the Pony Coupe to PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. Available exclusively in the TAEGO map, the Pony Coupe features an all-wheel-drive design for enhanced control across the diverse terrain found throughout TAEGO. The Pony Coupe was designed by master automotive designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro and was first premiered in 1974.
