"To kick off the festivities, we're announcing an in-game collaboration with celebrated toy designer and street art muralist Tristan Eaton, who dreamed up a beautiful set of commemorative in-game billboards that you'll want to watch for whenever a match takes you to Erangel, Miramar, or Sanhok. Tristan's incredible creations are here as a tribute to all the amazing Survivors who first dropped into Erangel six years ago, and to all who joined us in the days since."

"Additionally, we're hosting a special 6th Anniversary Message Event through March 23, during which players can ask questions and wish the PUBG: Battlegrounds team a happy 6th anniversary. For those who submit messages, we'll select 100 random winners to receive special real-world 6th anniversary-themed items, including metal posters, postcards, and stickers. Head to the PUBG: Battlegrounds website for all the details on how to share your message and enter for the chance to win."

"While not 6th Anniversary-related, the community-favorite Intense Battle Royale mode has returned through March 31 on PC and consoles. For those who missed out earlier this year, Intense Battle Royale is a fast-paced, mini battle royale LABS mode sustaining all the essential factors of our traditional battle royale system. We've simplified several factors to reduce play time by a bunch – looting, long-distance traveling, number of enemies, and more. These changes let players focus more on the usual Battle Royale Mode's signature late-game intensity right off the bat."
