Next month, the Xbox One version of PUBG will be joining its big PC brother as it moves on from Microsoft’s “early access” program, Xbox One Game Preview. On September 4, 2018, PUBG will be a normal, full game that will undoubtedly cause further confusion during game of the year discussions.
When it drops as version 1.0, the War Mode will be added to the game, which is a team deathmatch mode that more or less dumps the whole Battle Royale concept with respawns and teammate revives in favor of a score attack challenge.
The 1.0 release for Xbox One will also introduce the Sanhok map, which was launched for PC PUBG in June. In-game currency will also be introduced, for purchase of cosmetics, the Sanhok Event Pass, and more to be determined.
Finally, this will also be paired with a physical release of PUBG. Customers who purchase the retail disc will gain the Xbox #1.0/99 DLC, which adds Xbox-flavored items to the game. Digital players will also be able to access that content for a limited time, come September 4. A new Xbox One controller based on PUBG was also announced, which goes on sale on October 30.
Finally, the achievement list is shared with the Game Preview version, so nobody has to worry about losing progress in that respect.
