PUBG has been an Xbox console irregular for rather a whereas, even being provided in a bundle with Microsoft’s Xbox One X. It became one amongst, if no longer essentially the most appealing exclusives for the console. A narrative from Bloomberg even indicated Microsoft became attracted to extending the exclusivity extra — despite the indisputable truth that to what, we don’t know, as the proper dimension of the irregular period became never publicly published.
Level-headed, whereas this unique initiate — assuming it happens — also can budge away the Xbox One’s possibilities having a scrutinize a exiguous bleaker, it’s a tidy transfer for PUBG‘s mother or father company Bluehole, if most appealing since it wants to attain something — anything else — to gain extra of us to play its game.
PUBG has been struggling to support relevance within the face of Fortnite‘s unyielding onslaught, and that will most appealing gain worse as Battlefield V and Call of Responsibility: Gloomy Ops 4 debut their very hang versions of the fight royale structure. The PUBG player depend has been gradually falling off, eventually dipping below a million players earlier this month.
The distraction of shinier, more contemporary competitors has been compounded by big amounts of game-breaking bugs that precipitated the developer to confess its game became quite damaged. It adopted by strategy of with the demands of players and commenced a “Repair PUBG” marketing campaign last month.
“Repair the Game.”
Right here’s a phrase we’ve been hearing plenty lately. So today time, we’re announcing a novel marketing campaign fully centered on addressing bugs, quality-of-lifestyles enhancements, and classic performance enhancements.

One among the strengths of Fortnite has been the ubiquity of the game. Whereas it’s appropriate it’s likely you’ll perhaps presumably presumably’t have despicable-platform play between the PS4 and the other main consoles, the sheer incidence of Fortnite supplies it an edge by visibility alone. One other strength is that it’s free-to-play, whereas PUBG isn’t.
I doubt PUBG on PS4 will likely be adequate to place the game if its builders aren’t fascinating to place within the work to gain it better, and particularly no longer if it has to compete with the likes of Fortnite, BlOps 4, and BFV within a temporary time of its arriving on the console. Nonetheless no longer no longer as much as, it’ll be fun to have one other fight royale game to play on PS4 in case all of the above haven’t sufficiently labored the lunge out of your system.
