PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Gives Detailed Look At Upcoming Desert Map

During the E3 event, held in June, Microsoft announced that PUBG would be launching exclusively on Xbox One.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is PC Gaming's creme de la creme of 2017, soaring to the upper echelon of Steam's most played games.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will put up to 64 players on a remote island for a winner-takes-all showdown where strategic gameplay is as important as shooting skills.

"At this time, the Bluehole dev team is focused on bringing PUBG to Xbox One and its continued development on PC", said the developer, in a statement later issued to GameSpot. Through this partnership, Microsoft will help accelerate console development and maintain quality across all platforms.

In short, the Xbox One exclusivity of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on the console is still an open issue and the fact that Microsoft publisher's face for the version intended for its console does not necessarily imply absolute exclusivity. Bluehole, Inc shared an image at Gamescom Wednesday for the next map coming to the Battle Royale shooter and it condenses the action into a much smaller area with the lack of horizontal space countered by new vertical battlegrounds.

No one is really sure... Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor.

I don't know if we're still in the world of having to have big, exclusive titles just for one box, versus the promise that games you buy will work and look even better on X. It's up to the user to choose.

This is one fantastic accomplishment for a game that was listed only 5 months ago as early access on steam (we can only imagine how much more it's going to sell when it's out of early access).
