Having been hyped out of its mind this year, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is finally available on Xbox One in the Game Preview program. There's a pretty good chance you've played it or are thinking about playing it, and so we want to hear from you.
It's been quite the year for PUBG, shattering Steam's concurrent players' record, frequently being the most watched title on streaming sites like Twitch and Mixer and now, finally, coming to Xbox as a console exclusive.
Naturally, the experience is different to playing on PC, and anyone who has switched to playing on Xbox will see that. The frame rate is massively dropped, the textures are a little wonky and its generally rough around the edges. There are also reports of it being unplayable at times on the Xbox One and Xbox One S, while Xbox One X folks have a little more power on hand to push through the problems.
Personally, I've enjoyed it, even having played a bit on PC this year. I'll admit it's rough, even for an early game preview, but the core is sound and we at least got more recent features like vaulting and the improved UI elements at first launch. There's a lot of work to be done for sure, but there's promise.
But, it's not about what I or anyone else on the Windows Central team thinks. If you've gone out looking for a chicken dinner drop by the forums thread below and let us know how tasty it's been for you.
