PUBG is coming to the Xbox One on December 12th, 2017, with it set to retail for $29.99 — the same price as the PC version of the game.
The hugely popular Battle Royale game will launch with Xbox One X and HDR support, a brand new desert map and the new vaulting mechanic, which allows players to swiftly leap over obstacles. Additionally, the game will leave PC early access around the same time, with the same slew of new features set to be introduced on upcoming test servers ahead of the PUBG 1.0 update.
PUBG making its way to Xbox One and out of early access before the end of the year ensures that it will officially be in contention for a number of game of the year lists, with it set to officially become a full release before 2018. Considering that it has arguably been the biggest breakout game of the year, we should imagine that it will occupy a number of top tens before the year is over.
With Xbox One owners having little in the way of console exclusives to play over the past year, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds making it to the system is a huge boon for Microsoft. Though the PS4 has received a relatively similar take on the survival genre in the form of Fortnite Battle Royale, nothing quite compares to PUBG and console gamers will have a blast playing the game that has taken the PC community by storm.
