After a tease at E3 2017, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is finally coming to Xbox One later this December.
From the Paris Game Show, Xbox and Playerunknown Battlegrounds (PUBG) teamed up for a special broadcast that provided a console development update and a December 12, 2017 release date. In addition to the Game Preview release date on Xbox One, PUBG creator Brendan Greene detailed what players can expect from the game when it debuts on console.
Vaulting, which PC gamers have been waiting on for months, will come to the Xbox One Game Preview version of the game on day one. Greene also noted that the Game Preview version of the game will have HDR at launch, and the team will release a full 4K update for Xbox One X later once the team finish its 4K textures.
Greene says the PC and Xbox builds are different at the moment, but developer Bluehole aims to have parity between the platforms once the game reaches its 1.0 launch. In the coming months, Bluehole will launch a new desert map for PUBG on PC. The map will come Xbox One Game Preview, but not until they have all the bugs sorted out on PC.
Lastly, the team announced the game would be the same price as PC during its time in Game Preview, coming in at $29.99.
