Microsoft seems to really dig battle royal-like games. At least, that’s what it seems like given recent announcements at E3. Their latest move – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is launching exclusively on Xbox One’s Game Preview Program later this year!

Developed by Bluehole, Inc., PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds drops players into a realistic 8x8 km island where they’ll scavenge for weapons and gear before battling each other to the death. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean:

“We’re super excited to welcome PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS to the Xbox One Game Preview Program!” said Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox, Microsoft.  “Since its launch on PC earlier this year, we’ve been enthusiastic players and it’s been awesome to see its meteoric rise to popularity! We’re eager to collaborate with the team at Bluehole to bring PUBG to the Xbox One community, especially with console launch exclusivity.”

Console launch exclusivity…sounds like Battlegrounds will eventually end up on the PS4. Unless this it’s releasing alongside the Xbox One X (in which case it stills sounds like a temporary thing). Whatever the case may be, Xbox fans will be able to get their hands on this title in the near future.
