Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds to Launch Exclusively on Xbox One Late 2017
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is one of our favorite games here at Kitsuga. Our editorial staff regularly gets together to play for hours on end, with often hilarious results. With over three million copies sold it was a foregone conclusion that PUBG would spread across consoles from its PC debut. Last night at Microsofts E3 Press Conference, we finally found out when, and how PUBG will come to Xbox.
the first standalone Battle Royale video game with more than three million units sold on Steam, will launch exclusively on Xbox One’s Game Preview Program later this year. The final game will launch in 2018 across the Xbox One family of devices, which includes Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X.
Chang Han Kim, VP and Executive Producer at Bluehole said in a press release today:
“Microsoft’s Game Preview program allows us to get feedback directly from players, something that has been crucial to our success on Steam Early Access, Furthermore, Xbox Live’s solid multiplayer capabilities will enable us to deliver the most complete Battle Royale experience to players worldwide.”
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has sold more than three million copies since its Early Access release on March 23, 2017 and is currently the third most played game on Steam, with peak concurrent users (simultaneous active players) exceeding 200,000.
“We’re super excited to welcome PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS to the Xbox One Game Preview Program!” said Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox, Microsoft.
A last-man-standing shooter, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS drops players on a realistic 8 x 8 km island with visuals that showcase Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities. Starting with nothing, gamers must fight to locate weapons, vehicles and supplies as they strive to be the lone survivor.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is launching exclusively on Xbox One in late 2017 with the final version launching in early 2018 across the Xbox One family of devices.
