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.
