Fortnite may be hogging the spotlight, but that doesn't mean PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) doesn't have an audience. Microsoft has announced that PUBG on the Xbox One has over 8 million players and is the "most popular games on the platform since its release as a console launch exclusive in the Xbox Game Preview program". Furthermore, the company also revealed a new bundle for the game featuring the Xbox One X. Also included is an Xbox Live Gold subscription, Xbox Game Pass, and of course an Xbox One controller. Microsoft says the Xbox One X PUBG bundle will be "available later this week" for $499 (around Rs. 34,200) "at most major retailers worldwide". Here's what you get with the Xbox One X PUBG bundle.
Also, Microsoft lifted the lid on a new Minecraft bundle. This comes with an Xbox One S and has the following additions for $299 (around Rs. 20,500).
It is unknown if these bundles would come to India at this juncture and Gadgets 360 has requested Microsoft India for comment. If so, this wouldn't be the first time PUBG has been bundled with the Xbox One X in India. Microsoft did something similar during the Xbox One X's India launch, just before it got a price hike to Rs. 48,490. For what it's worth, PUBG on the Xbox One X is the best way to experience the battle royale shooter, at least compared to the PC version that isn't as optimised as it could be.
