PUBG is Coming to Xbox One on December 12

Microsoft announced today that the eagerly-awaited shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is coming to Xbox One as a console launch exclusive on December 12 through the Xbox Game Preview program.

“Beginning December 12, Xbox fans will be able to play PUBG while it’s still in early access through the Xbox Game Preview program,” PUBG’s Chang Han writes on the Xbox Wire blog. “We’re approaching development on Xbox One with the same community-driven focus that we’ve taken with the game on PC. As a result, the ultimate battle royale experience that fans play on Xbox One will be slightly different than what players know today on PC.”

So it will run well, then? But I kid.

The 1.0 version of the PC version of PUBG will launch alongside the Xbox One version on December 12. But the two versions won’t be aligned, feature-wise on day one. PUBG plans to fix that over time.

If you’re not familiar, PUBG has taken the PC shooter world by storm, though I find the game to be a bit tedious as it only supports a single mode, and if you get killed once, you’re out of the game. Hopefully, the game will improve over time: More and smaller maps would help. So would more game types.
