Next week, the best-selling PC phenomenon of 2017 – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – is coming exclusively to console on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program.
To prepare you for your jump onto the island, we wanted to share the exact times the game will be available on Xbox One across the world. As with all multiplayer games – especially those with 100 person matches – as more players and servers come online around the globe, the shorter wait times will become and the faster you’ll be able to get into matches – so players in New Zealand and Australia, be patient!

As a reminder, Xbox Game Preview is a way for fans to preview and purchase the game while it’s a work-in-progress. PUBG Corp are approaching development on Xbox One with the same community-driven focus that they’ve taken with the game on PC and your feedback is key. Play the game, give the developers feedback and help make the game the best it can be.
We’ll have more information on how and where to share developer feedback, troubleshoot issues and get real-time updates before launch, so stay tuned.
We’ve also heard from many of you that you would like to pre-order the game digitally. Games in Xbox Game Preview are not eligible to be pre-ordered at this time, but you can buy and download the game as soon as it becomes available in your market, or pre-order from participating retailers worldwide.
The countdown to PUBG on Xbox has begun – see you on the island!
