Buy an Xbox One X, get PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds free for a limited time

Microsoft is throwing a bit more muscle behind the newly launched Xbox One X for the remainder of the holiday shopping season. Those who pick up the “world’s most powerful console” between December 17th and December 31st, will receive a copy/code for the just released PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

The preview program version of PUBG is currently $29.99 so it’s not a bad little Xbox One X Holiday perk at the moment.  Apparently over a million players have jumped into the XB1 version in the first 2 days, which is pretty darn impressive.

See the announcement from the Xbox Wire below.

Earlier this week, PlayerUnknown?s Battlegrounds (PUBG) released as a console launch exclusive on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program, bringing the hottest multiplayer game of the year to console for the first time.
