PUBG Coming To Xbox One On December 12, 2017


Major Nelson has word that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is coming to the Xbox Game Preview program on December 12, 2017.

Quote:
Xbox fans, we know you’ve been waiting and we’re so excited to finally be able to say it – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is coming to Xbox One as a console launch exclusive through the Xbox Game Preview program on December 12, 2017!

We shared this news at Paris Games Week today, where Brendan Greene – aka PlayerUnknown – and I opened the Xbox booth with Aaron Greenberg, General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing.

Beginning December 12, Xbox fans will be able to play PUBG while it’s still in early access through the Xbox Game Preview program. 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.

Lost opportunity to have this out for One X launch day. Would have been a great way to kick off a console exclusive of a mega popular game and strike at the right time. Too bad.

Consider how damn hot and popular this game is (basically like the #1 streamed game), this is all the exclusive X1X needs.

The article I read recently said that something like 2/3rds of all players are just bots farming for items. Not sure that will translate to that big of an audience on console where it isn’t going to be as easy to resell the items you unlock.

I've read several articles about this miniscule phenomenon. You're right. The infinitesimal amount of people doing it on PC will probably not have much success on Xbox.

Good. And?

If there is crossplay with the PC folks the consolers will be lambs for the slaughter.

Wow. The game launches with one whole map, with another whole map to come in the future. All those hundreds of millions of $ went to the vaulting animation I guess. And people complained that Battlefront had sparse content.

The interface is a clusterfuck on PC. I fear what it will be like trying to do inventory management on the console.

It will just be a diagram depicting instructions on how to affix your penis to the wall with a staple gun.

To be fair, the map is humongous. I've put in maybe 60 hours so far and feel like I'm playing in new areas with every round. This game receives a lot of hate, mostly from people who never even bothered trying it. I ignored it for a while but eventually jumped on the bandwagon a few weeks ago and I'm very glad I did. Duo mode is so much fun with a friend. Best two-player experience I've had in many years.

You know, thinking about that for a second, that actually would be kind of hard to do. Or is that the joke?
