Totally Accurate Battlegrounds Goes Free-to-Play, Announces Battle Pass

Independent developer Landfall yesterday announced, not as an April Fools joke, that its absurd battle royale title Totally Accurate Battlegrounds was going free-to-play with immediate effect, with a significant update to follow on the 19th April. The announcement was accompanied by a trailer, which you can watch at the top of this page.

The update will pack out the title with an in-game cosmetics store, a season pass offering free rewards and a paid battle pass offering 'premium' rewards. In addition, the game's Catchphrase system will see a major expansion. Players who paid for the game prior to going free will receive a tracksuit cosmetic, and when the major update releases later this month, they'll also receive a tracksuit weapon skin and 1,000 Money Coins (the equivalent of 6USD) to spend in the in-game store. Players who owned the title when it first launched for free in 2018 will get all the same rewards with the exception of the in-game currency.

Originally released as an April Fools joke in 2018, Totally Accurate Battlegrounds eventually took on a life on its own, releasing for real and gaining a sizeable playerbase. Now, as the game reaches its third anniversary, it's making another leap into legitimacy, going free-to-play with a season pass and battle pass monetisation system. For more information on the free-to-play version of the game, or the upcoming update, check out the Totally Accurate Battlegrounds Steam update page.

Totally Accurate Battlegrounds is now available for free on PC.
