The Xbox One test server for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) seems to have been a roaring success. The main drawbacks so far have been the complete downtime due to server issues (but hey, it's a test) and the pretty crummy times that Europeans have to play.
But this morning the developers have announced that the Miramar test server will continue a while longer.
Xbox players: The astounding number of all of our dedicated players participating on the test server is both humbling and overwhelming!
We would like to continue testing so we're keeping the test server open from now until the end of the weekend. https://t.co/CFAFJRR5mkXbox players: The astounding number of all of our dedicated players participating on the test server is both humbling and overwhelming!

The new times for playing are:
- 4/25, 5pm through 4/29, 11pm
- 4/26, 2am through 4/30, 8am
There's now a much less restrictive time of day to play, which is particularly good for those not in North America. The PUBG test server is open for anyone to try out, so long as they own a copy of the main game on the Xbox One. See you for dinner in the desert!
