Mark your calendars. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has officially announced its PlayStation 4 launch date and it’s December 7, 2018.

That’s right, Xbox’s year of console exclusivity has come to an end, and PUBG will hit the ground on PlayStation 4 with three maps — Erangel, MIramar, and Sanhok. There will be another snow-themed map — AKA Vikendi — set for release later this winter season, but no specific date have been announced as of yet and it can only be accessed by those holding the Survival Pass.

Both standard disc and digital editions of the game will be priced at US$30. The Survivor’s edition — which will include Survival Pass: Vikendi, a 2,300 G-Coin Pack, and 20,000 Battle Points — comes at US$60, while the Champion’s Digital Edition — which has 3,700 G-Coins on top of the Survivor’s Edition — will set you back US$90.

Pre-orders are currently open, and you’ll be able to snag Nathan Drake’s “Desert Outfit” from Uncharted, Ellie’s backpack from The Last of Us, and a PUBG avatar and theme as pre-order bonuses.

So if you’ve a friend or family member who’s into the whole battle royale gaming scene and is in possession of a PlayStation 4, there’s a fair chance this is going to make their holiday wishlist. You’ll know what to put under the tree.
