PUBG to hit early access on Xbox December 12th

Beginning December 12, Xbox fans will be able to play PUBG while it’s still in early access through the Xbox Game Preview program.

Xbox’s Game Preview program has been largely dormant since its announcement at E3 in 2015. Back then another runaway PC hit was taking over the world in DayZ. It’s creator Dean Hall was trotted out on the Xbox stage to launch the program and promote his upcoming title Ion.

Today we see the world’s most streamed title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds take advantage of the service to allow it’s unfinished product hit the Xbox platform.

In addition to the Xbox announcement PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene announced that the game would finally hit version 1.0 on PC in the same month.

“This has been an amazing year for us and launching both 1.0 on PC and on Xbox through Xbox Game Preview are huge milestones for the team.”

Greene also confirmed that development for the title would somewhat splinter, the experience on PC and Xbox being different as they tweak the independent versions beyond their December releases.

“We’re approaching development on Xbox One with the same community-driven focus that we’ve taken with the game on PC. As a result, the ultimate battle royale experience that fans play on Xbox One will be slightly different than what players know today on PC.”
