Microsoft has exclusive rights to the game for well over a year, so the news it is landing on one of the hottest gaming systems out there is fantastic. It was added to the Xbox One Game Pass last year, but it hasn't really been a hit for the company. In fact, PUBG has struggled on the system, with many fans complaining about the game's performance. It will be interesting to see if it is received better on the PlayStation system or not.
Changhan Kim, CEO of PUBG Corp. recently told The Verge, that the company is thrilled to be partnering with Sony PlayStation. He went on to explain they are happy to expand their reach and introduce new communities into the Battle Royale game. Kim also praised the community of passionate gamers that are part of the PlayStation 4 family.
Those who want the regular version can get it for only $30. However, as with any newly released video game, a few other editions are being released at the same time. There is the survivor's edition that will run $50, as well as the champion's edition for $60. Both of the special edition games will come with G-Coin and extra in-game rewards as two special bonuses. Preorders for all versions of the game are being taken right now.
