To spite it’s preview program status, players still continue to flock to Bluehole’s addictive PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on the Xbox One (our impressions here). WIth a half-dozen game updates since launch and at least 4 million players hunting each other down (which may or may not include game sharing), PUBG has reached another impressive milestone.
To celebrate, Microsoft is giving active players a nice in-game bonus: 30,000 Battle Points for those who pick up and play the game before January 31st.
Check out the announcement below.
Today we?re excited to announce another milestone for PlayerUnknown?s Battlegrounds (PUBG): the community of players on console has now grown to over 4M players! We?re thrilled to see the community continue to grow and have been inspired by everyone?s enthusiasm for the game ? with your ongoing support and feedback we will continue to evolve PUBG and create the best experience for Xbox players.
This week we deployed the sixth content update for the game, delivering numerous gameplay, optimization and bug fixes. More details on all the updates we?ve made since launch can be found here.
To show the community our appreciation for your support and feedback, we are rewarding players with 30,000 Battle Points to purchase cosmetic crates in the game. Anyone who has purchased or purchases PUBG on Xbox One and has created a character before January 31 at 12AM PST will receive this bonus, so if you?ve been waiting to jump onto the island, now is the perfect time to become a part of our growing community on console. Bonus Battle Points will be delivered and appear directly in players BP accounts (right below their gamertag) after February 1, 2018 at 12AM PT.
We will continue to build on the foundation we?ve laid with PUBG on Xbox One with the feedback received from the community and we encourage you to continue in your pursuit of chicken dinners! Be sure to stay tuned to Xbox Wire and Major Nelson for all the latest PUBG news. See you on the battleground!
