The landing date for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One is now official: December 12. The white-hot PC shooter game will land on all Xbox One consoles that day in the paid “Xbox Game Preview” program—which is Xbox’s “Early Access” equivalent and therefore indicative of an unfinished product.
That should sound familiar to players of PUBG‘s current PC version, which has leaned on its Early Access status there while suffering from its share of bugs. Yet today’s news has a silver lining for that platform as well: a simultaneous announcement of the PC edition’s “1.0” version coming “in late December,” according to the CEO of PUBG Corp., Chang Han Kim.
The announcement, made at this week’s Paris Games Show during an Xbox event, is sadly scant on some key details for both platforms.
In the Xbox One’s case, Kim was not forthcoming about the console version’s price [Update: because Microsoft already announced it at $29.99], nor whether the Xbox Game Preview price would be different from the console version’s final cost (whenever it’s “completed,” that is). Kim also didn’t go into detail about what enhancements owners of the upcoming Xbox One X should expect for PUBG. (And there certainly wasn’t any mention of the game coming to other consoles any time soon.)
