PUBG Xbox One release date SHOCK – Is this proof that console launch is imminent? | Gaming | Entertainment

PUBG fans could be playing Battlegrounds on Xbox One very soon.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has just been classified by the Australian ratings board, which suggests the PUBG release date is imminent.

PUBG was given an MA15+ rating in Australia, which as VG247 points out, is the second strongest classification a game can receive.

Interestingly, the classification page reveals that PUBG will launch with a lengthy new title on Xbox One.

The ratings page lists PUBG as “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds: The Ultimate Life & Death Fight”.

Hopefully the multiplayer shooter will be ready for the launch of the Xbox One X on November 7.

And PUBG has just passed  ahead of the Xbox One release date.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds already has the record for most concurrent users on Steam, having beaten DOTA 2’s previous high of 1,291,328 users back in September.

And despite the likes of  – not to mention countless  – PUBG’s popularity is showing no signs of slowing down.

The game has now passed 2 million concurrent players.

Battlegrounds peaked with 1,96 million players this weekend, before hitting 2 million players yesterday.

Battlegrounds takes place on a remote island where 100 players compete to be the sole survivor.

Similar to games like DayZ, players must gather supplies, armour and weapons in order to defeat other players.

And in a unique twist, the battleground actually gets smaller as games go on.

“Players will enter a last-man-standing battle where they try to locate weapons, vehicles and supplies in a graphically and tactically rich battleground that eventually forces players into a shrinking play zone as they engage in a tense and spectacular fight to the death,” reads a Bluehole statement.
