The widely popular video game “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” will finally be making an appearance on the Xbox One console later this year. It will be released as part of the Xbox Game Preview program on December 12, which will allow video game fans everywhere a chance to buy and play the game while it is still being tweaked by the developers.
“PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” was released in a similar fashion for Microsoft Windows computers through Stream, and it quickly became one of the most popular video games in the world. Steam has claimed that more than two million people play the game on their PC every day, and it has also sold a total of 18 million copies since its early release in March. The developers have finally perfected the PC version of the game, so they can now shift their focus to the upcoming Xbox One release.
While the goal is to make the two versions of the game identical, that will not be possible when the Xbox One version launches on December 12. The console version of “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” will initially lack some of the features and maps of the PC version. The goal is to make the both versions identical, but that may take a few months to achieve.
It is safe to say that most people that own an Xbox One are not going to complain about playing the unfinished game in December. The exciting battle royal gameplay of “PlayerUnknown’s Battlgrounds” has made it one of the biggest phenomenons in the video game community this year, but a large percentage of gamers have not got to experience it yet because they do not own a personal computer equipped for gaming.
“PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” will cost $29.99 when it hits the Xbox Game Preview program in December. Microsoft currently has exclusive rights to the game, so there are no plans to release it on the PS4 in the near future.
