The Xbox One version of PUBG is the exact same as the version that's now on the PC, and the game is also going to be getting some new content in the near future, such as a new map that takes place in a desert with a city, rather than on the rural island that the game's first map was on. When I learned that it would be coming to the Xbox, I was extremely excited as it means that my favorite game would be on my favorite console...a flawless pair.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, better known as PUBG, has finally arrived on Xbox One. Pressing the button triggers one action while holding it triggers another.

Hold the aim button (the left trigger) and you'll enter an over-the-shoulder aiming mode, press it to jump into a first-person aiming mode, or you can press the left bumper to enter a longer-term first person mode.

Gamers excited for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' arrival on Xbox now have an idea of what to expect from the adaptation's controls. I managed to pursue a player across a wide open field without them noticing me at all, which would have never happened in the PC version of the game where players are constantly spinning the camera to check behind them.

It's a purer approach, but in our initial matches we found that the balance between difficulty and satisfaction felt skewed towards the former, with gunfights becoming protracted as a result. Pressing B will allow you to crouch but holding B will make your character lie prone to the ground. It's important to note that the Game Preview Program is quite similar to Steam's Early Access, meaning that the game is a work in progress and is not finished. One of the main concerns in the release of the game to the Xbox One is how well the controls will be translated, but it appears that the developers did a good job.

"Fallout 4 VR." The trend of taking huge hits from the past couple of years and re-releasing them as virtual-reality games continues with Bethesda's return to Vault 111.
