PUBG will now be bundled freely with the Xbox One X

Posted on December 16, 2017

After only recently launching onto the Xbox One as a console exclusive, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is now confirmed as a bundled game for the console.

The news comes directly from Microsoft who made the statement:

“Today, in celebration of PUBG coming to the hottest console of the season, we’re excited to announce a special holiday promotion where every Xbox One X purchase will come with a copy of PUBG! That means you can join in on gaming’s biggest phenomenon and jump right into the ultimate battle royale experience on Xbox One. The promotion is available in select regions for a limited time, starting Dec. 17 through Dec. 31”.

The announcement raises a few questions about why Microsoft would choose PUBG as a bundled game, especially since their have been some issues with the game’s optimisation and how well it runs on the console. Although ultimately the Battle Royale’s popularity is trumping everything else right now and this will no doubt be  a tempting offer for gamers.
