PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds jumps onto PS4 on December 7th, 2018

As we kind of assumed some time ago, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is indeed coming to the PS4 and it’ll be landing on the platform, worldwide, on December 7th, 2018.

After battling against fierce competition in Fortnite: Battle Royale and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Blackout, a move to the PS4 just makes sense for the game. Coincidentally, PUBG for the Xbox One will be available for free as part of the Xbox Game Pass soon too.

There will be a number of editions to purchase including the $30 Looter?s Edition base game, $50 Survivor?s Edition with a bit more progression, Survivor Pass and G-Coins, and the $60 Champion?s Edition with even more.

See the announcement below, and have a look at the first trailer too.
