How To Get A Ticket For Blackpink The Virtual
If you wish to attend Blackpink's The Virtual concert, you will have to do like you would for any concert and get a ticket. Doing so is easy, and places don't appear to be limited, but you best get your ticket now before you discover later that they have all gone.
Tickets are free, and to get one, simply follow these instructions:
- Make sure PUBG Mobile is updated to the latest version and launch the game.
- Download all in-game data packs.
