PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One has Already Surpassed 3 Million Players

PUBG Xbox One

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a battle royal-inspired shooter that pits the player - or a team - against 100 others in a map that is ever shrinking. Watch my replays. Sort it out, the game is ruined, stop just thinking about making money all the time. As a matter of fact, PUBG managed to draw in a huge crowd with a player count of over 1 million within its first 48 hours of being available for Microsoft's current generation console in "early access". When the game's arrival on Xbox One was announced, console gamers were excited to get in on the action.

The plan is to have PUBG on PS4 eventually, though.

KitGuru Says: PUBG sold tremendously well on PC and it seems that the Xbox One version is also off to a great start. "This idea that just because you've got a few bad eggs, you've got to ban a whole country is a bit reactive", he said.

Many other similarly structured games are expected over the years ahead, hoping to ape and hopefully improve on the PUBG formula.

While it doesn't sound like PUBG Corp is going to go down the road of Region Locking China, many fans adamantly believe that not doing it will ruin their enjoyment and experience with the game.

This news comes courtesy of the Xbox Wire, with Microsoft mentioning that this particular milestone for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was achieved "through the end of 2017". The new update for the PC version of the game contains bugfixes for several issues that hindered gameplay.

On the Xbox One though, it's very much still a work in progress. They will also make changes to make it more balanced in the future.

Player-Focused Metagame Tools: Leaderboards and statistics plus replays and spectator mode tools are coming after Early Access launch. "However, PlayStation is very strict about this". The game has had a rough launch.

"Player Unknown Battlegrounds" now has better visuals with the new update. It'll be worth the wait.
