PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is coming to Xbox One as a console launch exclusive in late 2017, developer Bluehole announced at the Microsoft E3 2017 press conference. In 2018, it will be updated with Xbox One X enhancements.

Here’s an overview of the game, via Bluehole:

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has sold more than 3 million copies on PC, is a top three game on Steam with over 200,000 concurrent users, and has been one of the most played games since its early access started on that platform, with a passionate community constantly engaging with each other and sharing their exciting (and hilarious) gameplay on Mixer and across social media.

And thanks to Xbox Live, the fastest, most reliable gaming network, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will have the support of a robust online infrastructure helping to bring this captivating genre to console.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a last-man-standing shooter where players are dropped onto a realistic 8 x 8 kilometer island. Starting with nothing but your two fists and a willingness to stay alive, players must fight to locate weapons, vehicles, and supplies as they strive to be the last-remaining survivor.
