PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ release date was finally revealed as the developer, Bluehole, took the stage during Paris Games Week. The game will arrive in early access on the 12th of December, this year. Beginning that day, Xbox One players can play the game through the Xbox Game Preview program.
“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.” – Bluehole VP and executive producer Chang Han Kim wrote on Xbox Wire.
Bluehole has also said they’re “on track” to release the 1.0 version on PC late December. And while the developers are working on both the PC and Xbox One version simultaneously, they note that each has its “own separate roadmaps” and will differ slightly from each other.
