During the special Gamescom Inside Xbox broadcast, Microsoft and PUBG Corp. revealed that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ console version is leaving Xbox Game Preview on September 4, 2018.
A PUBG Limited Edition controller will also be releases on October 30, 2018 to celebrate the launch of the complete version of the battle royale title. It’s black with grey camo designs attached to it, and comes with themed DLC.
The 1.0 version comes with the Sanhok map, which released last June on PC, an in-game currency that’ll allow you to buy the Sanhok event pass with more missions and ranks, the deathmatch-style War Mode coming with respawns and revives, and achievements from the game preview.
Here’s the full details:
- 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.
- War Mode: 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: These will carry over from Xbox Game Preview to Full Product Release.
- In-game currency to purchase cosmetics, Event Pass: Sanhok: Allows players to open up more missions, more levels, and tons of permanent rewards on the Sanhok map, and more.
