In this 2018 GDC session, PUBG Corp's Sammie Kang explains how PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds communicated with a small player base since its pre-alpha test phase.
Kang also discusses what community activities and programs were put into place in order to drive growth of the community during its first and second alpha tests until reaching Early Access.
