At its pre-Gamescom livestream, Microsoft brought in Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene to discuss PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ process towards launch, as well as the game’s huge success. Back at E3 2017, the game was announced to be coming to Xbox One later this year, but today we learned that co-developer Bluehole will be partnering with Microsoft to bring the game to Xbox One.
In PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, players compete to be the last-man-standing. You must fight to locate new weapons and supplies in a large-scale 8×8 kilometer island via battle royale shootouts that were built in the Unreal Engine 4.
Brendan Greene didn’t have any news to provide on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ official release date, but he did provide the announcement that the title has reached 8 million players! The game is still expected launch on Xbox One later in 2017. On March 23, 2017, the game made its way to Steam via its Early Access program.
In case you missed out on all of the details revealed today, you can get caught up on the entire Microsoft pre-Gamescom livestream when you’re ready.
Recently, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds received first-person only servers, in keeping with Bluehole’s promise to give the community the services that it wants to see.
