Weeks after announcing its one-year anniversary celebration with new weapons and vehicles, PUBG Mobile has announced Prime and Prime Plus subscriptions which can be purchased in-game on both iOS and Android but with different pricing.
For iOS users, PUBG Mobile Prime and Prime Plus subscription plans can be accessed for a monthly price of Rs 79 and Rs 419 respectively. After the first month, however, Prime Plus members will have to pay Rs 799 per month. For users on Android, PUBG Mobile Prime can be bought for Rs 85 per month. PUBG Mobile Prime Plus will be available to Android users at Rs 400 for the first month and for Rs 850 post the one-month period.

What’s interesting is that, while Prime Plus membership for the first month for Android users is cheaper than that for iOS users, everything else, including monthly Prime and Prime Plus monthly subscriptions are cheaper on the iOS side of things.
What’s more surprising is that while announcing it globally on Twitter, PUBG Mobile only displayed one pricing plan for both Android and iOS users. In contrast to the pricing in India, PUBG Mobile Prime and Prime Plus subscriptions can be availed in the US for $0.99 and $4.99 respectively with Prime Plus going on sale for $9.99 after the first month.
Diving into the benefits, the PUBG Mobile Prime plan offers in-game items though Battle Points (BP) for a week or a month. Players will also receive 5 Unknown Cash (UC) rewards every day for up to a month, totalling up to 150 UCs.
PUBG Mobile Prime Plus subscription, on the other hand, offers 20 UCs every day which amounts to a total of 600 UCs every month. Besides that, users will also have the ability to purchase any in-game item with BP on a permanent basis and get 10 RP points with daily discounts on additional items. Prime Plus users will also get a 50 percent discount on a purchase of the first classic crate lottery every day.
