PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS to Launch on Xbox One Late 2017

Bluehole announced today from the Microsoft press conference at E3 2017 that PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS will launch on Xbox One’s Game Preview Program later this year. The final game will launch in 2018 across the Xbox One family of devices.

“We’re super excited to welcome PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS to the Xbox One Game Preview Program!” said Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox, Microsoft.  “Since its launch on PC earlier this year, we’ve been enthusiastic players and it’s been awesome to see its meteoric rise to popularity! We’re eager to collaborate with the team at Bluehole to bring PUBG to the Xbox One community, especially with console launch exclusivity.”

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.
