PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for Xbox One drops Dec. 12, 2017
Microsoft is working with Bluehole to bring PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) to Xbox One, and finally, we have a launch date.
PUBG will hit the Xbox One and Xbox One X with 4K enhancements on December 12, 2017, as part of the Xbox Game Preview program.
Bluehole also revealed that "version 1.0" of PUBG is still on track for a December launch for PC, while acknowledging that they'll continue bringing the same community-driven development cycle to both Xbox and PC versions of the game.
To celebrate the Xbox version's launch, PUBG will also bring three limited-edition cosmetic DLC packs to the console. There are no plans to offer in-game purchases during the Xbox Game Preview version of the game, but these limited edition packs will be available for testers and hardcore fans to show their dedication.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been nothing short of a phenomenon on PC, rising through the ranks in mere months to become the No. 1 game on Steam for PC. In PUBG, you and a squad of up to four players battle against 100 others in a battle royale firefight to the death. All weapons and equipment must be procured on-site, and they're randomly positioned in each game. During the course of a match, the playable open world area continually shrinks, forcing the remaining players into combat.
PUBG is tense, tactical, and bloody good fun. And you can grab PUBG on PC right now for around $30.
