The massively popular battle royale video game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), has graduated from Game Preview (open beta) and is now live on the Xbox One as a full, proper, title.

Gamers who had been playing the Game Preview will receive the new 1.0 version of PUBG as part of today’s free update. Everyone else can purchase it as a physical disk or digitally via the Microsoft Store.

In addition to removing the Game Preview label from the game, today’s big update also adds a new map called Sanhok, a new game mode called War Mode, in-game currency to buy cosmetics, and the Event Pass for Sanhok.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds also now has Xbox Achievements, 37 in total. Of these 37 Xbox Achievements, 9 will automatically unlock for those who had already met the requirements while playing the Game Preview:
