PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) hits 5 million Xbox One players

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was 2017's biggest game, and while it has slipped out of the spotlight due to competing clone Fortnite, it still enjoys a vast player base that many modern multiplayer games can only dream of. Today, Microsoft revealed that PUBG has now hit 5 million players on Xbox, and revealed a cosmetic jacket DLC to celebrate.

The PUBG5 will be awarded for free to all players who own and have activated a character on Xbox One before March 22, 2018.

Microsoft also hailed the continued improvements to the game, having recently released a new patch, while detailing an extensive roadmap of upcoming plans for the game.

If you're interested in getting involved, the game is available for $30 on Xbox One and PC.
