Highlights

  • PUBG Mobile is running an event in partnership with McLaren.
  • Players can win six McLaren 570S skins during this event among other prizes.
  • Battlegrounds Mobile India may also see similar events as and when it gets released.

PUBG Mobile has announced a partnership with British automotive manufacturer McLaren for an interesting vehicle in the game. As a result, the game is running a special event, which started on June 1 and will end on June 30, in which players can participate and win the McLaren 570S skin. Apart from this, there are in-game goodies and vouchers that players can win during this event. PUBG Mobile will also feature different McLaren car models in the game in this duration.

According to PUBG Mobile's Instagram post, there are going to be a total of six McLaren 570S skins that players can win. They include Pearlescent, Lunar White, Zenith Black, Glory White, Raspberry, and Royal Black. And to win these skins, players need to enter the McLaren Drift event that is underway. To do that, they need to tap on the Start Acceleration button at the bottom to start the spin. Each spin will cost players 90 UC, so be wise. And, in addition to these skins, there are more prizes to be won, which come consecutively on each spin.

The full list of prizes includes:

  • x15 Lucky Voucher
  • x5 Lucky Voucher
  • Extreme Adventure Backpack
  • Viper Assassin Mask
  • Space Mascot Headpiece
  • Viper Assassin Crossbow
  • Lucky Cat Parachute
  • Star Guardian Headpiece
  • Viper Assassin M24
  • Space Mascot M762
  • Viper Assassin Set
  • Space Mascot Set
  • McLaren 570S Lunar White
  • McLaren 570S Zenith Black
  • Lucky Medal
  • Star Guardian Headpiece
  • Guardian Spirit Ornament
  • Star Guardian Set

Players can also use up all the Lucky Medal to get all six McLaren skins if they upgrade them consecutively.

Now, while this news is good for PUBG Mobile players, people who are awaiting the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India will be sceptical about knowing if they will also get such special prizes. Chances are Krafton will partner with different brands to organise such events to promote the game and pique players' interest, especially during the initial days of the game. The name and other elements of PUBG Mobile India avatar may have been changed to avoid comparisons, but marketing strategy and other things of both PUBG Mobile and Battlegrounds Mobile India may see crossovers.

The Battlegrounds Mobile India release date is not officially confirmed, but Krafton today announced that the pre-registration for the game on the Google Play Store has reached 20 million. That is a big achievement for Krafton and represents a huge interest that Indian gamers have shown in the game. The launch date may be June 18, according to rumours, however.
