Microsoft Offers PUBG Free with Xbox One X Purchase to End 2017

The battle royale game is definitely one of the most hyped games of 2017, and you can expect Microsoft to continue beating the PUBG drum during the rest of the holiday season.

In celebration of this achievement, Microsoft is giving away copies of "PUBG" to anyone who buys the Xbox One X console between December 17 and December 31. And while that version is set to be in an early access period for a little while longer, that didn't stop one million Xbox One owners from logging into the game in the first 48 hours since it went live. The promotion is available in select regions for a limited time, starting December 17 through December 31. That's the version of the Xbox One that's capable of powering "native" 4K/HDR games and movies - the version of the Xbox One you should only buy if you already own or are planning to buy a 4K/HDR-capable television. Microsoft launched the console November 7 for $499; while a number of bundles are available for the Xbox One S, the Xbox One X is now sold only by itself. If the game supports 4K graphics and HDR on the Xbox One X, it's still pretty rough around the edges: according to our colleagues over at Digital Foundry, the game struggles to consistently reach 30FPS on the Xbox One X, and it's unsurprisingly not better on the standard Xbox One.

PUBG has definitely been one of the biggest gaming stories of the year, releasing as a small indie title before becoming a juggernaut on PC. PUBG on Xbox One will receive further optimizations and the new desert map, Miramar, at a later date.
