Your subscription to Microsoft’s Netflix-style game service will get one of the most popular titles on the planet tomorrow. Microsoft has confirmed that it’s adding PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG to Xbox Game Pass. The service allows users to play any and all games in the library and keep them for as long as they want provided that they keep paying for Xbox Game Pass.
A subscription to Xbox Game Pass costs $9.99 per month and provides access to more than 100 titles one of which will be PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds starting tomorrow, November 12th.
Microsoft’s decision to add this title to Xbox Game Pass follows another recent decision to make the title free for Xbox One for a limited time. It appears to be doing this as PUBG may finally be released for the PlayStation 4 next month. Microsoft had a timed console exclusive on PUBG for the Xbox One which now seems to be over.
Its arrival on PS4 will enable millions of additional gamers to play the game and will thus enable the title to continue competing for popularity with Fortnite, another popular battle royale game.
Microsoft certainly wants the Xbox One to be the console of choice for PUBG players which is why it has been taking these steps, other than the fact that it would continue to make money from any in-game purchases that any PUBG players make.
