PUBG Announces Full 1.0 Release For Xbox One With Exclusive Content (VIDEO)
Almost a full year after PUBG hit Xbox One’s Game Preview program, the popular battle royale game is finally getting its full ‘1.0’ product release. Announced recently at Gamescom, the release of 1.0 ushers in the arrival of the Sanhok map, ‘War Mode,’ and the introduction of currency with which to purchase cosmetics. Here’s a video showcasing 1.0 on Xbox One, featuring Xbox’s Major Nelson:
Here’s a look at what’s coming in the 1.0 release of PUBG for the Xbox One:
- The Xbox One debut of the Sanhok map. Inspired by the islands across Southeast Asia, Sanhok is a 4×4 compact battleground. The map might be smaller, but the battles won’t be, with speedier games and circle dynamics that have been adjusted to bring battles to a dramatic finish more quickly. Sanhok will introduce all-new weapons and vehicles in addition to the debut of dynamic weather changes for the first time on Xbox One.
- The arrival of War Mode on Xbox One, a deathmatch-style battle royale gaming experience where players hunt each other in a static zone, respawning you back in with a parachute and weapons if you’re killed. Teams get points with kills and reviving teammates, and the team that reaches certain points in the game wins the battle. War Mode will make its hands-on debut on Xbox One at gamescom 2018 in a can’t-miss experience in the Xbox booth.
- Achievements that will carry over from Xbox Game Preview to Full Product Release.
- The introduction of in-game currency to purchase cosmetics, Event Pass: Sanhok, which will allow players to open up more missions, more levels, and tons of permanent rewards on the Sanhok map, and much more. We will share much more detail about these products, how they will work and some of the cool content you’ll be able to unlock closer to 1.0 launch.
In addition to the above features, Microsoft is celebrating the release of 1.0 in style with an exclusive DLC set for existing PUBG Xbox One owners. The DLC includes a white branded hoodie and sweatpants, as well as a custom Xbox skinned parachute. Those that have yet to purchase the game can still acquire the above DLC for a limited time beginning on September 4th.
Last but not least, Microsoft now has limited edition PUBG inspired controllers that feature a black digital camo design, exclusive trigger trips, and includes special in-game content. The in-game content has yet to be revealed, though those that wish to pre-order the controller can do so right here for $69.99.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds exits the Xbox Game Preview program on September 4, 2018.
