STORY

When PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) entered early access beta in spring of 2017, they wanted more pre-order options for players looking to lock and load.

PUBG had already capitalized on massive worldwide interest through distribution on mainstream platforms – setting off the global battle-royale craze that continues to dominate the industry – but those platforms didn’t deliver enough for pre-orders. And for safety and security, PUBG’s pre-order payments partner would need top-shelf fraud protection.

It has since become a massive global success.

Previously, Bluehole developed fantasy-themed MMORPG TERA, originally released in South Korea in 2011 before expanding to North America and EU in 2012, and again to a worldwide audience via the PS4 and Xbox One consoles in 2018.

Xsolla’s easy-to-integrate pre-order solution helped PUBG to fill this dusty town with even more sharpshooters from around the world.
