PUBG developer Bluehole is about to release the game on PS4.
After a one year period of exclusivity on Xbox One, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is finally making the switch to PlayStation.
And there’s not long to wait, because PUBG has a December 7 release date.
There’s no official release time, but the PlayStation Store says it’s less than a day until it launches.
It’s likely the game will be available from 12am UK time on December 7, or 8am GMT at the latest.
A midnight launch seems the most likely, because PUBG is already available to pre-load.
According to the PlayStation Store listing, the PUBG PS4 file size is a hefty 33GB.
In terms of content, the PlayStation version of PUBG launches with the original Erangel map, Miramar and Sanhok.
PS4 pre-order customers also get access to the PUBG avatar and a brand new Theme.
That’s on top of the exclusive Nathan Drake desert outfit from the Uncharted series, and Ellie’s backpack from The Last of Us.
The freebies don’t end there, because new players will receive a PlayStation-inspired Pixel Art Parachute.
Fans willing to spend more money can opt for the Survivor’s Digital Edition (£39.99), which includes the base game and pre-order bonuses, as well as the Vikendi Survivor Pass, a 2,300 G-Coin pack and 20,000 BP.
Finally, the £49.99 Champion’s Digital Edition comes with a 6,000 G-Coin Pack instead of 2,300.
PUBG developer Bluehole reveals more about the PS4 launch: “When we first started developing PUBG for console, the game was released as a beta, meaning stability was something we worked very hard to address.
“After a long beta phase and feedback from the community, optimisation and stabilisation became key for us.
“It was quite the challenge for the dev team to juggle our focus on stability while trying not to delay content that our community had been asking for, like newer maps. But this was a challenge that we were willing to take on.
“While we’ve grown considerably since our initial introduction on consoles, user experience and stability will always remain a pivotal aspect of our development.
“We are also focused on adding new content to the game and bringing custom matches, Ranked System, and event mode to the PlayStation 4 version after launch.”
