PUBG Players on PC Really Want to Region Lock China

PUBG Corporation has issued an apology for problems with the distribution of the in-game currency BP following the full release of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds in December, and promised that players who were shortchanged will be taken care of.

"Currently Playerunknown" s Battlegrounds from Bluehole Studio sold more than 27.8 million copies. Epic Games' Fortnite introduced a very similar mode that's been enormously successful on consoles, while countless pretenders have emerged on mobile devices. The Battle Royale game, which is basically the brainchild of one guy, Brendan Greene, pits 100 players against each other in an ever shrinking playing field and tasks them with being the last one standing.

For players just getting started, there will be a Tips and Tricks segment on Mixer at 3 p.m. PST on January 16 to share tips on inventory management and showcase UX shortcuts and features on the Xbox One controller. This solution is one that updated just a few days ago with PUBG Corp saying that "combating cheaters is one of our highest priorities at the moment".

Issues still remain across all versions of the game, so despite passing v1.0 on PC, PUBG Corp still has a lot to work on - most notably the game's loot box system in the wake of an industry-wide controversy regarding the common practice. It's definitely not ideal, by any means, but it was a big boon for Xbox owners looking for an exclusive console game release.

PUBG launched as part of Microsoft's Xbox Game Preview program, which is essentially the console version of "Early Access".

You can purchase PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds from the Microsoft Store for $29.99. The Co-op Podcast will always be free, but with your help, we can make our podcasts and content even better. You don't have to look very far to see countless videos of players using hacks in PUBG that allow them to basically insta-kill anyone from anywhere on the map.

So there's basically good news and bad news when it comes to getting PUBG on PS4.

The other option, of course, is forking out the cash on the Steam Market, which seems to be what developer PUBG Corp wants.
