The final launch of the defining Battle Royale title will happen later tonight.
If you’ve been wondering why version 1.0 of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t currently available for PC despite it being December 20th, then it’s because the update is going live later today. The official Twitter for the game has announced that PUBG will be out of Early Access at 11 PM PST.
Maintenance on live servers will begin at 6 PM PST and last for five hours. The developer has promised that patch notes for version 1.0 will be shared soon along with plans for what’s coming next.
Version 1.0 for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the long-awaited final release of the game and will add a number of new features like a vaulting system, killcams, balance changes and much more. The update has been available on test servers at intermittent periods over the past month and is now finally making its way out.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still in a pre-release state over on Xbox One though via the Game Preview program. Despite problems, that release garnered 1 million players in just 48 hours.
Players, we will be leaving Early Access and launching PC 1.0 on Dec 20 11PM PST. The maintenance on live servers for 1.0 will start Dec 20 6PM PST / Dec 21 3AM CET and last for 5 hours. 1.0 release patch notes and our plans beyond the release will be shared with you soon.
