The day has finally arrived – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has made its full console release on Xbox One, jumping out of Game Preview as more players get involved and try to rack up some delicious Chicken Dinners!

If you somehow do not know what PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, or PUBG as it is affectionately called, is, or just need a refresher course, the premise is simple… Jump into an expansive open map with up to 99 other online players, pick up the weapons, armour and gear scattered along the floor and be the last one standing. Everyone but you, or your team, must be dead by the end of the game, denouncing you as a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.

Sounds simple? Well, in its basic premise PUBG certainly is, but in order to bring home the bacon (or chicken in this case) lightning fast reflexes, an accurate gun arm and tactical strategy will be key. With a deadly storm always shrinking, pushing every player closer and closer together, the tension will rise, and only the most steady head comes out on top.

On release the game comes with three distinct and quite frankly huge maps to explore. The original map of Erangel, the previously seen desert map Miramar and the new tropical Sanhok map (with unique weapons and vehicles) will be your battlegrounds. In terms of weapons and gear everything from shotguns to snipers to med kits are included for your benefit – as well as hotly-contested supply drops landing on the map. Expect regular updates in the future most likely including new items and modes to try out, as well as hopefully more maps to add to the roster.

Squading up with three online buddies is also an option if you prefer to fight in duos or squads, and there are both a third person perspective and first person perspective to choose from before jumping into a match. And you may just want to team up – utilising vehicles and team-play just adds an extra layer to the strategic gameplay of PUBG. Looks-wise and PUBG will certainly be looking as pretty as ever with realistic visuals which can be made even better with Xbox One X Enhancements.

If you want to get involved in the huge PUBG scene then you can do so on Xbox One for £24.99. The game is also available on PC.

To accompany the full release, there are also a number of DLC options available. £34.99 will see you gifted the Sanhok Edition, opening up more missions, new levels, and tons of permanent rewards on the Sanhok map. It also includes 2,300 G-Coin and the Fire in the Hole Skin Set, whilst the Sanhok Pack (£14.99) or £7.19 Sanhok Event Pass offer other cheaper ways to enjoy the new map.

There is also a Starter Pack available for £7.19, bringing new coin opportunities and the Aviator set. Drop a number of standalone G-Coin purchases ranging from £3.59 right up to £89.99, and there is seemingly something for everyone with the full release of PUBG.

Move over Fortnite… PUBG is here to take the ultimate chicken dinner and don the battle royale crown! Keep an eye out for our full review soon.
