How To Play PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds For FREE On Xbox This Week
Here's how to play PUBG free on Xbox - but hurry!
PUBG will be free to play on Xbox this weekend courtesy of Microsoft's Free Play Days.
Up until now, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds - more commonly known as PUBG - has only been available to Xbox players who've bought the Early Access title. But now, the Battle Royale shooter (think Hunger Games, but with more frying pans, sniper rifles, and cowering in bathrooms) will be available to all. So if you've yet to pull the trigger, here's your chance to try it out, preferably with a buddy or two.
Well, we say weekend, but it's actually starting next 3am on Thursday, April 19, and running until 8am Sunday April 22, 2018. To grab it, head to Games with Gold on your Xbox dashboard and download from there.
You'll get access to the full game and all modes, so whether you like to creep around as a duo, spray'n'pray in a team or take it on everyone as a lone wolf, all options are there.
And for once, you won't have to worry about losing progress should you choose to extend your trial - every match of PUBG starts over, anyway! - but you will get to keep any hard-fought battle points you accrue in your trial.
