PUBG Arrives on Xbox Today, But You Shouldn't Buy it (Yet)

Reviews PUBG

The HypeZone PUBG channel is now in beta, and Mixer hopes to provide some great features for game streamers and game viewers in the future. Over the past weekend, the developers gave players the option to test the new Miramar desert map and its assortment of weapons on separate test servers, but after a few days, they were shut down in order to prioritize the transition for the game's inevitable launch.

After months of anticipation and watching the game from afar, Xbox One players can finally get their hands on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds starting today. The popular first-person perspective mode will be added at a later date that has yet to be announced.

Trust us, Bluehole has worked hard to find a place for every single command on the Xbox One controller. I managed to pursue a player across a wide open field without them noticing me at all, which would have never happened in the PC version of the game where players are constantly spinning the camera to check behind them.

PUBG Arrives on Xbox Today, But You Shouldn't Buy it (Yet)

Not when you consider the lacklustre menus, mind, which is why I was surprised to see some basic features unaccounted for. Since then it's sold millions of copies, over 24 million, and has become one of the most-played games on Steam. This comes via the platform's "Game Preview" - a program that allows studios to publish games to Xbox One and Windows 10 while still in development.

It needs the smallest amount of auto-aim, and it desperately needs its control scheme to be simplified if PUBG wants to feel like a console game, rather than a PC game controlled with a gamepad. It makes sense for the game's file size to increase as it is updated and draws closer to its full release on Xbox One sometime next year. Limiting the game to paying players is a valid way to do this, preventing what could've been an overwhelming population from the Xbox Live userbase on launch day.
