PUBG draws over 3m players on Xbox One

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Could it rival the PC?

PUBG has proven successful on Xbox One, hosting over three million players.

Despite the near immediate complaints regarding performance, PUBG’s console endeavor has proven a resounding success, with the Xbox Game Preview title drawing more than three million combatants.

Considering the game’s phenomenal (and continued) success on the PC, it’s no surprise to see the Xbox One following suite, especially after the game sold more than a million copies in just 48 hours.

The Xbox version has had a few updates since release to improve performance, but there’s still a ways to go in getting the console version to achieving a steady and reliable framerate.

In the effort to catch up with the PC version (now officially launched), a patch for the Xbox One this week pushed the popular First Person mode to include both Duos and Squads, alongside Solo.
On similar lines, we can expect the desert map Miramar to make its way onto console before too long, as the map has been available for some time on PC. To get yourself prepared, why not check out either of our two guides for the level?
