PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is now free to play on Xbox One

The popular battle royale video game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (or PUBG for short), is now fully free to download and play on any of Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles as part of a special promotional campaign.

From today until April 22nd, any Xbox One owner with an Xbox Live Gold subscription can download the full PUBG game from the digital storefront on the Xbox One dashboard and experience it as if they had paid for it themselves.

After the 22nd, any progress made in the game will save to the cloud so anyone who chooses to buy it in the future can pick up from where they left off this weekend.

PUBG has been a huge phenomenon on both PC and Xbox One so it’s worth checking it out just to see what all of the fuss is about. It’s important to remember though that PUBG is in Game Preview which means that it’s essentially in open beta or a testing phase. Xbox Achievements aren’t enabled yet, the visuals and gameplay aren’t perfected, and the chance of encountering a glitch or bug is pretty high. Still, the game is significantly better to play now than when it first launched on Xbox One back in December of last year.
