PUBG PS4 – Latest news
Fans have renewed hope that PUBG will come to PS4 thanks to a revelation of a rather unexpected place.
During a trailer that talked about the development of PUBG for Xbox One that Microsoft showed on Gamescom 2018, there was a tour of the development studio that accidentally appeared to show PS4 developers in the background (via Push Square).
It is worth noting that the PS4 Pro may have been used for entertainment purposes, but it is strange to see that such a console was on the desk of an active development studio if it was not practical to use at least.
The trailer notes that PUBG has a & # 39; Xbox console exclusive to the launch & # 39; is, which is a very specific wording – and seems to suggest that it will also apply to other consoles in the future. We will keep you informed while we receive more information.
PUBG PS4 – Overview
Xbox One gamers were given the chance in December last year to win the hugely successful PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, making them the first players to try the game on a console.
It was also an immensely popular launch, which collected more than 2,000,000 players within 24 hours – not bad for a game that was originally released as part of the Xbox Games Preview program.
But now we have seen the game arrive on PC and Xbox One, when can we see that it ends up on the PS4 family of consoles from Sony?
If exclusivity with earlier timed Xbox One is something to do, we can wait about a year.
PUBG PS4 – Rumors
Previously, senior writer of Windows Central Jez Corden seemed to suggest that MS & # 39; deal with Bluehole will be largely the same as that of Microsoft for Rise of the Tomb Raider, which was also a timed Xbox exclusive for a year.
With regard to a release date on PS4, an official statement from Bluehole has been claimed:
"At the moment, the Bluehole dev team is focused on bringing PUBG to Xbox One and its ongoing development on the PC, but there is nothing to announce about future plans on other platforms."
And likewise, Jez Corden had suggested that publishing deal or not, Bluehole might publish itself for PS4 down the line if they wanted to.
"They are free to puberty themselves on PS4, and they will not lock it like Sunset Overdrive was, etc.", Corden told his followers on Twitter.
All this confusion started on E3 2017 with many different messages and followed the big Xbox One that revealed Chang Han Kim, executive producer of Battlegrounds spoke to VG247, where Kim was directly asked if the game was an exclusive console, to which he responded:
"We certainly have plans and thoughts about other platforms."
"But at the same time we are still an early access game. Our mentality and direction has always been to receive as much feedback from our community as possible and to iterate on that basis."
PUBG PS4 – What to expect
According to the graphic and performance analysis arm of Eurogamer, Digital Foundry declares that "this game is not exactly a shining beacon of scalability, stability or optimization on its own PC, and it is also far from the finished article in its console form" thanks to the problems that it has on the Xbox One.
Digital Foundry noted that "during a 22-minute game, we observed an average frame rate of 25.6 fps on the base console, increasing to 27.6 fps on its more powerful 4K-oriented counterpart" – since the game should run on 30FPS, that is not radiant approval.
Microsoft and Bluehole both argue that the game will become more stable over time and that the title's performance will improve as more patches are added to the game.
But that means that if you postpone these versions of the game and pick it up on PS4 next year when it is released, you'll get a better version of the game, closer to the original goal of the developer.
So although you may not be able to play the game at the moment – that does not necessarily have to be bad.
PUBG PS4 – Other & # 39; Console Exclusives & # 39;
Rise of the Tomb Raider was originally exclusively launched as Xbox One, but Sony already saw it a year later the release on the PS4 as a larger product, with more content and different patches already included.
We also saw Dead Rising 4 announced as exclusive of an Xbox One in December 2016, and now it has come this far with a PS4 release – a year later.
This seems to be a general trend with the triple A titles – of which PUBG is now definitely a part – so it is logical that PS4 players have the game on time for their 2018 holiday.
We have not heard official confirmation of this yet – but we expect to hear something quickly.
