PUBG for the PlayStation 4 Officially Announced – Coming on December 7th with Digital/Physical Purchase Options and Pre-Order skins!
For quite a while, Battle Royale games have been the latest fad and now, the folks at behind PUBG are bringing their game to the PlayStation 4!
What is PUBG?
PUBG is a Battle Royale game, by PUBG Corporation in South Korea, that’s the main competitor to Fortnite (even though it was available months before it via Steam Early Access).
As with most battle royale games, you land into a pretty large game area that, in PUBG’s case, has a total of 100 players.
In this area, you have find weapons and armour in order to aid your survival and to win, you have to be the last player standing!
If you’re not into the latest trends, PUBG and Fortnite are similar to ‘Hunger Game’ mods on Minecraft servers and other PvP games with lots of players. If you are joining this craze late and are unsure between Fornite/PUBG, you should check out comparisons such as this one because PUBG and Fornite offer significantly different weapons and maps along with growing differences in gameplay.
How can I get it? Will it be available physically?
Unlike Fortnite (Battle Royale), PUBG isn’t free to play to play on home consoles and PCs (even though it’s free on Android/iOS). As a result, you must buy the base game to play it and this can be done by choosing to buy one of the following 4 options:
- Disc Edition, which only includes the base game for $29.99
- This will hopefully include the full game and not just a small part of it forcing you to download the rest
- Looter’s Digital Edition, which is apparently just a fancy name for the digital version for $29.99
- Survivor’s Digital Edition, which includes the base game, Survival Pass: Vikendi, 2300 G-Coin Pack and 20,000BP for $59.99
- Champion’s Digital Edition, which is the same as the above but with a 6000 G-Coin Pack instead of a 2300 one. This costs $89.99
- Prices are in USD
The above will be available for pre-order today and every edition will come with the following pre-order extras:
- Nathan Drake Desert Outfit (Uncharted Series)
- Ellie’s Backpack (The Last Of Us)
- A PUBG Avatar and a theme for your PSN User ID which will be available for download immediately after pre-ordering
As of writing this article, it doesn’t seem that the pre-order links are up yet but they will be added to the article as soon as possible! 🙂
UPDATE: They’ve been made available and are in-line.
