It’s official! PUBG is coming to PS4 on December 7

Last week, we told you that it looked like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was headed to the PlayStation 4 next month. Thanks to content ID for the game showing up buried on Sony’s public-facing site, it was pretty much a certainty that we’d be seeing the more realistic Battle Royale game make the jump to PlayStation.

Now it’s official.

“Hey everyone, today we are thrilled to unveil the exciting announcement that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is officially coming to PlayStation 4,” says PUBG Corp’s Joon H. Cho. “Bringing PUBG to the PS4 has been an ambitious project for us, and we are beyond thrilled to finally be sharing this news with the world.”

The 100-player last-man-standing game will finally be hitting the PS4 on December 7. It’ll be available as a $20 retail disc or digital download, with more expensive editions adding the survival pass and in-game currencies on top of the base game. Here’s a look at the editions:

Disc Edition

  • $29.99 USD (MSRP) / $39.99 CAD (MSRP)
  • Includes: Base Game

Looter’s Digital Edition

  • $29.99 USD (MSRP) / $39.99 CAD (MSRP)
  • Includes: Base Game

Survivor’s Digital Edition

  • $59.99 USD (MSRP) / $79.99 CAD (MSRP)
  • Includes: Base Game, Survival Pass: Vikendi, 2,300 G-Coin Pack, 20,000 BP

Champion’s Digital Edition

  • $89.99 USD (MSRP) / $119.99 CAD (MSRP)
  • Includes: Base Game, Survival Pass: Vikendi, 6,000 G-Coin Pack, 20,000 BP

There will also be PlayStation-centric pre-order bonus to give it a bit of Sony flair – including a Nathan Drake skin and Ellie’s backpack from The Last of Us.

“One of most memorable moments while developing PS4 PUBG was the first time we had 100 people join a test match,” says Koo Sung Jeong, PS4 Lead Project Manager. “Before the test, the dev team’s mission was to deliver the finished product this year – it was a big challenge and it felt almost impossible. But as soon as we had 100 people drop in for the test, our confidence started to build and and we pushed ourselves harder to make everything happen. We are proud of the game we have created and can’t wait to get it into your hands!

Hopefully it won’t run like hot garbage for the first year of its life on PlayStation 4. While the Xbox One version has come a long, long way since its initial release, it’s still not quite as polished as competitors like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Blackout. PUBG on PS4 is going to have to perform pretty well to make a dent in those games.

    In the interest of er…research, I downloaded it last on in me wee X box. It ran well. I only played it for about an hour or so and thought it looked rubbish, but it felt ok. It was slow as hell in terms of picking up loot. I didn’t notice any latency issues which actually surprised me considering I was playing in the EU region. I did manage one solitary frag against what I assumed to be another curious soul who was pretty much in the same boat.

    Having said all that, I believe there is a appeal to the game. But going from COD to PUBG is like comparing swimming in jelly to swimming in water.

    Oh yeah, it’s free on X box…kinda.

      Dude when I read the article I thought the same thing. Was keen when it first came out as I wanted to give it a bash, but the whole battle royale thing has become kind of stale now.

    PoE and PUBG coming to PS4 on the same day. 1 is free, better, and has more content. Also the other isn’t Fortnite.
