PUBG has been going strong for some time, seeing the game launch on tonnes of different consoles and even on mobile. Alongside this growth comes plans for the future. Clearly taking some inspiration from the likes of Fortnite and Splitgate, it's trying to pull in tonnes of new players by going free-to-play. If you want to play PUBG ranked after this happens, here's what you should know.
How to play PUBG Ranked Mode
As PUBG makes the swap to free-to-play, a lot will be changing. Ranked play gives you access to a much more serious version fo PUBG intended to test the best of the best.
Unfortunately, the only way to get ranked play is to get Battlegrounds Plus.

How to get PUBG Plus
If you own the game, you should automatically get access to it. Now that the free-to-play transition has started, you will have to wait until it goes free-to-play on January 12th to get your pack. If you play on PlayStation, you should find the commemorative pack in the store by searching for it. Elsewhere, you should just have to wait until it pops up.
