It was once that solely probably the most expert PUBG: Battlegrounds gamers may benefit from the candy bounty of poultry by being the final ones standing in a 100-player battle royale match. However, because of a brand new promotion between PUBG and KFC, any participant can take pleasure in a rooster dinner, winner or not.
As a part of PUBG’s 26.1 replace, KFC (née Kentucky Fried Hen) eating places are peppered throughout Erangel, changing the sport’s gasoline stations. Gamers can as an alternative refill — sorry!! — on 12-piece buckets in these shops, a nakedly intelligent promotion to get individuals to do not forget that fried rooster does certainly style scrumptious (presumably in hopes that they’ll order some IRL).
Amusingly, chowing down on digital KFC-branded meals has in-game advantages. Consuming a KFC Hen Bucket features like one among PUBG’s first assist kits and “showcases your character savoring the rooster leg when consumed,” in keeping with the 26.1 replace patch notes’ very scientific description of consuming. In terms of sides, KFC fries will perform like a bandage (a much less efficient therapeutic merchandise) whereas an unbranded beverage stands in for PUBG’s vitality drink (growing a personality’s enhance and motion velocity).
Right here’s a peek at what all that quick meals consumption appears like in motion.
Gamers who wish to get some KFC in PUBG can order from an in-game kiosk, and it’ll magically seem. The eating places seem like unstaffed, which might be for the very best when operating a quick meals franchise on a homicide island. And whereas insulated supply luggage are strewn all through the KFC places, it doesn’t seem that gamers can ship a meal to their squadmates (or get tipped for doing so).
The much less enjoyable part of the PUBG: Battlegrounds KFC crossover is that you just’ll see a bunch of KFC billboards on Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi, in addition to KFC banners on beginning planes.
On the upside, you may also put on a KFC rooster bucket bucket hat.
