PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is already a hit in the Xbox One's early access program, but Microsoft is looking to bring more people into the battle royale game this holiday season with a special offer for Xbox One X customers. Unlike with the Xbox One S, there are no bundles yet available for the One X. In fact, we've inquired with a number of people from Microsoft, and the company hasn't even been willing to confirm that bundles are coming (of course, this doesn't mean that they're not coming).

As reported by Microsoft, PUBG already amassed over 1 million players on Xbox One in its first 48 hours. You find weapons and other tools in buildings; the map becomes smaller as time moves on, which forces people to fight one another.

"'PUBG' Is An Inexcusable, Embarrassing Mess On Xbox One", wrote Forbes. However, the Xbox One version is about six months behind the PC game in terms of development - and unfortunately, it shows. Without this deal, it would seem unlikely that the Xbox One X would manage to sell as many units as the PlayStation 4 Pro will, especially with the PSVR price dropping drastically.

"Play the game, give the developers feedback and help make the game the best it can be".

Still, PUBG is one of the most popular games around.

PUBG's faithful PC base will be happy to know that Xbox One users aren't the only ones to receive good news, as some new details have emerged about the game's release out of early access.
