PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) hits 4 million players on Xbox One

The rise of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) on Xbox One continues and the latest milestone announced today is that the title has hit 4 million players. For a game that launched in Game Preview in December 2017, that's astonishing.

Today we're excited to announce another milestone for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG): the community of players on console has now grown to over 4M players! We're thrilled to see the community continue to grow and have been inspired by everyone's enthusiasm for the game – with your ongoing support and feedback we will continue to evolve PUBG and create the best experience for Xbox players.

To celebrate the milestone, anyone who currently plays or starts before January 31 will get 30,000 free battle points to spend in-game on crates filled with cosmetic items to make your character look so much better. Or worse, whichever you choose.

To show the community our appreciation for your support and feedback, we are rewarding players with 30,000 Battle Points to purchase cosmetic crates in the game. Anyone who has purchased or purchases PUBG on Xbox One and has created a character before January 31 at 12AM PST will receive this bonus, so if you've been waiting to jump onto the island, now is the perfect time to become a part of our growing community on console. Bonus Battle Points will be delivered and appear directly in players BP accounts (right below their gamertag) after February 1, 2018 at 12AM PT.
