PUBG hits 3 million player milestone on Xbox One

Share

It's definitely not flawless, by any means, but it was a big boon for Xbox owners looking for an exclusive console game release. The console didn't receive that many console exclusive games in 2017 so PUBG is quite possibly their biggest hit previous year. This solution is one that updated just a few days ago with PUBG Corp saying that "combating cheaters is one of our highest priorities at the moment". Right now you can purchase PUBG for $29.99 from the Xbox Store.

"According to the service SteamSpy, PUBG became the best selling game on PC for all history of existence of the platform, "sliding" even cubic Minecraft with its circulation of 27.5 million (100 million with the consoles)".

Official release PUBG on PC took place on 21 December 2017. Microsoft also worked on the Xbox One conversion itself, keen to strike while the iron was hot.

Hugely popular multiplayer title PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has proved its success could not be contained to PC, after hitting an impressive sales milestone on Xbox One.

Still, it seems that despite the performance issues, many Xbox gamers are happy to pick up the game and see what all of the fuss is about. They will also make changes to make it more balanced in the future.

"Early Access on Steam and Game Preview on Xbox One are like pre-release, so they don't have a restriction on quality", explains Kim to InvenGlobal. The game has had a rough launch. The Xbox One version is expected to receive that map update sometime this year.

PUBG is a reimagining of the first-person shooter as an e-sport competition, a virtual version of the Hunger Games where competitors parachute onto an island, and then find weapons and other items and hunt each other down.
