You May Soon Be Able To Play PUBG On Your PlayStation 4
With PUBG hitting Xbox One, there are strong rumours that PUBG may soon feature on PlayStation 4 as well. The full release on Xbox One also had a label stating “console launch exclusive”. Reading between the lines, this can only mean further console releases at some point of time. Members of a video gaming forum recently unearthed the existence of promotional PUBG images that were sitting on the PS4 servers. These images were linked to an apparent digital game ID code. Searches with the code do not bring up anything on the Play Station website. However, the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea has apparently rated PUBG. This strongly hints at the game’s Play Station version’s existence.
PUBG is a battle royale game that first launched on PC on the Steam platform, which has since taken the world by storm. It has found success in its mobile version. It has faced tough competition from games such as Fortnite and very recently Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 which also are, or have Battle Royale modes. PUBG has been dealing with the competition by introducing regular updates, patches and new maps. It recently introduced the Night Mode that allows a user play the game in complete darkness, increasing the difficulty level.
PUBG was released on Xbox One in December 2017 and the PS 4 release is long overdue. The game retails at $30 for the Xbox One at the moment. PUBG has suffered quite a bit since it’s first console release from certain performance issues. But now, it seems to be much more stable. There are strong hints that the game might drop on PS4 in December 2018 during The Game Awards 2018. Some are also speculating that there may have been a console exclusivity contract with Xbox One which may expire in December. There are also rumours that Tencent Games may announce the game in November itself but release it in December. It will be interesting to see how PUBG maintains it’s daily user base and if the user base increases significantly with the PS4 release.
