PUBG Now Bundled with Xbox One X For A Limited Time; Over 1M Players in First 48 Hours


Microsoft just announced that PUBG (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds) registered over one million players in the first two days since its debut on the Xbox One Game Preview program.

That's a mighty impressive number, especially once you consider that the game's optimization on the platform has been widely criticized. Still, the blog post mentions how the game will soon receive new enhancements, content updates such as the desert map Miramar which recently debuted on PC, and optimizations. The latter point would be the most pressing in this case.
