Xbox One Version Of PUBG Is Now Available To Buy And Play

Xbox One Version Of PUBG Is Now Available To Buy And Play

The downside is that it's actually fairly limited compared to the PC version, which uses a far more engaging and controlling drag-and-drop system, whereas Xbox players are limited to a single press and then a halving of items down the middle. One of the main concerns in the release of the game to the Xbox One is how well the controls will be translated, but it appears that the developers did a good job.

Microsoft's Game Preview program is nothing new - publishers have introduced and fully shipped games via the program in the past, including The Long Dark and ARK: Survival Evolved.

A Microsoft spokesperson speaking to Windows Central said that the decision to not include a free trial for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds at launch on Xbox One was intentional, and that the company is looking to implement it at a later date when they are comfortable with the game's server stability.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds received a few nominations at The Game Awards 2017, but it lost Best Ongoing Game to Overwatch and Game of the Year to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

To anticipate the deluge of "PUBG" fans, server launch will be staggered by region across the world to gradually accommodate all players by Tuesday.

Yankees trade Headley, Mitchell to Padres for outfielder
In a feel good story, Headley returns to San Diego, the franchise that drafted the former Gold Glove and Silver Slugger victor . Cory Spangenberg and Yangervis Solarte , who was included in the 2014 Headley-to-New York trade, can play third for the Padres.

If you're playing PUBG on Xbox One rather than PC, you'll just want to tap B to crouch.

However, with this move, Microsoft is also seemingly bending the rules of its Game Preview program for its own benefit.

Despite its benefits to Microsoft, with the game's stability somewhat questionable in its current state, this can be seen as a divisive move on Microsoft's part.

The Xbox One version of PUBG is now available for Xbox One players to buy and play, likely opening the door to millions of other players on the ludicrously popular battle royale shooter.
