A few words from the PUBG HQ Team in Korea

From Koo Sung Jeong, PS4 Lead Project Manager:
“One of most memorable moments while developing PS4 PUBG was the first time we had 100 people join a test match. Before the test, the dev team’s mission was to deliver the finished product this year – it was a big challenge and it felt almost impossible. But as soon as we had 100 people drop in for the test, our confidence started to build and and we pushed ourselves harder to make everything happen. We are proud of the game we have created and can’t wait to get it into your hands!”

From Changmin Lee, PS4 Engineering Lead
“It’s always exciting and tense presenting our work to the players as a developer. Getting our game into the hands of the PS4 community that haven’t experienced PUBG is a thrill equal to creating a new game. Everyone on the PS4 dev team have worked passionately on every single moment of the game to create a perfect experience for our players – we hope you all enjoy your journey on getting a chicken dinner!”

As we prepare for the official launch on December 7, be sure to stay up to date on the latest news at our website and social channels. The team here at PUBG have worked tirelessly to bring our unique Battle Royale experience to this platform, and we can’t wait to start this new journey with you.

  • Is cross-play enabled or planned?

    • Yea u r right it will be cool

    • I don’t think so

    • Cross-play wanted. I want my progress from PC on PS4. Is it there?

    • wakingthedead7

      I think i will stay with BLACKOUT unless its free than maube heard nothing but horror stories

    • It’s been on Xbox for a year without cross-play and people don’t say a word. It hasn’t even released on PS4 yet and you people are crying about crossplay. lol to be brainwashed by Twitter campaigns.

    • killaBeez007G

      This will be great for all of the people who want to step down from BO4 Blackout. Not hating on the game, I played on PC for a while but the textures are terrible and even on xbox the guns took a while to load.

      We already have h1z1 for free, and like everyone says “this game runs like a beta”. They are asking us to pay for it. Bad move. They should release it as a free psn game to get people into it and then all of their friends will follow and have to buy the game.

      Good luck, specially when you decide to sue BO4 for copying your game the way you tried with Fortnite.

      ps. I am not trying to hate, this is just my personal opinion on how I see it panning out.

    • I played PUBG on Xbox One X and it took sometime for them to get the performance of the game to be solid, But in all fairness , PUBG was just in BETA form for Xbox. So I expect it to be rock solid for Ps4.The game is definitely worth $29.99. It is much better Battle Royale than Fortnite because it is a more consistent shooter. Plus it has so many cool guns and vehicles, attachments for your weapons. It was fun especially in squads.

  • Finally!

  • I can’t wait!

  • Holy……….Whaaaa!!!! My mind just exploded!!! Oh man!! Ever since h1z1 made it to the PS4 I have been wondering if / when PUBG would make it’s way! I’m so glad!!

  • kidcullity14

    Lol no thanks

    • txshurricane

      Found the guy who thinks anyone cares that he won’t be buying the game.

  • King_Anarki

    Will PUBG be 30fps or 60fps on PS4/PS4 Pro?

    • GaMeR_bOi_83

      it runs bad on the XBOX. Imagine how bad it’s going to do on the Pro lmao I’m PlayStation through and through but even I know it’s going to run horrible on the Pro.

    • I’m guessing a solid 15 fps with tons of stuttering..

    • PUBG Mobile was optimized to run over 60 frames per second on my iPad Pro, and that has about the computing and graphics power of an XBox One S, so they certainly are capable of optimizing the game for fast frame rates.

    • Pubg läuft jetzt schon auf der PS4 Pro mit Stabile 30 Fps. 60 Fps werden von den Entwicklern auf der PS4 angepeilt. Bei der Xbox Version sieht es leider anders aus. Es sol ein Performance Patch nach dem Rel auf der PS4 kommen aber wahrscheinlich leider nicht mit Stabilen FPS.

  • When is the preorder link dropping? I’d like to preorder this now.

    Or just be kind and send me a free download link, since I’m the first to ask in this thread. :p

  • sweet i cant wait. will i be able to bring all the gear i bought on XBOX? or do i have to re buy everything again? i have some cool costumes!

  • I am very excited, but this must run with 60fps on the pro, because the textures are very bad also aa and the resolution. When this only runs in 30fps, i have to ask my self what kind of amateurs are working on the ps4 ( especially pro ) version

    • OBEY_inGenuity

      Y’know, if the Xbox One X (the world’s most powerful console) can’t run PUBG at 60 FPS even without being displayed at 4K resolution, what makes you think that it will be playable at 60 FPS on the PS4 Pro?? You’re special kind of dumb, aren’t ya?

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo

      xbox is far from the worlds “strongest” home console. it runs terrible on pc, still runs like it’s an’ alpha still.

    • It can run at over 60 FPS on my iPad Pro. Depending on optimization and settings, a very good frame rate is certainly within reach. I do wish this was the one game I could play with my holdout Xbox buddy, but I don’t want to compete against people using a mouse.

  • 20fps incoming

    this game stinks folks, day late and a dollar short.

  • Looks like the time deal with ms has ended lol,I couldn’t care less about this game but at least people will shut up about this in YT comments on the PS channel.

  • Champion is 90..

  • Loool 30 or 50 freaking bucks for an unoptimized broken game ……..ill pass

  • That Microsoft exclusivity deal is gonna bite you guys in the butt. Everyone is either playing Fortnite of Blackout now. You guys may have started the trend but you’ve since been eclipsed.

    • burtonsnowbds

      Agreed. Day late, dollar short.

    • SinceByDarren

      The exclusivity deal will have zero impact on Sony. The developer and publisher may reconsider, but their game was a success and is still generating money for them. It’s just another game added to Sonys console and anyone interested gets a chance to play. Anyone not interested… doesn’t have to play. See how easy it is?

      What’s with the trend starting and eclipsed comment? What game or deal has outdone Sony’s success this generation?

    • @SinceByDarren he was talking about Bluehole, not Sony with that comment. Also, he was talking about the trend of battle royal games. PUBG was the first to get some major popularity within the gaming community. Then Fortnite got some mainstream popularity, but I think most of the gaming community prefers Blackout on Black Ops 4 right now. Their popularity eclipses that of PUBG

  • abood_theking003

    Do you need ps plus ??

    • VanilaGorila

      According to the pre-order pages on the SEN store, YES.

    • Real shame, a title that you cannot play offline and it requires you to pay for plus, when its direct competition Fortnite is free and does not require plus… I’ll pass

  • Make if free pls. It was free a while back on xbox.

    • XxDark_RapturexX

      @RaiLui-_- It was never free on Xbox.

    • deejdave1983

      @ XxDark_RapturexX You took the time to make a post trying to make someone look wrong. Why wouldn’t you simply google this before posting?

  • i have been waiting for so long for pubg to come out on playstation and now im hyped cant wait for it

  • Way to late and you gotta buy the game too. LOL not interested. Maybe if you didn’t have BS reasons for a MS deal and didn’t release after BO4, I’d maybe be interested.

  • burtonsnowbds

    Snooze…

    You know that saying, “Strike while the irons hot?” Well it ain’t hot anymore.

    We’re good, thanks.

    • txshurricane

      Yeah, no.

      This is going to make them even more rich. Nice try, though.

  • SinceByDarren

    My wife’s coworkers got her to play on iOS. I’d be interested in buying it if I could play with her. Any word on cross-play?

  • 20 fps is such a blast to play! lawl!

  • NOCTISpandaXIII

    I believe it should be running the same as the Xbox platforms.
    My highly guess is that the base PS4 would be running at 900p slighty better than the base Xbox and the PS4 pro be running at 1440p/1200p with the same performance as the Xbox-x. Any other thoughts in mind :D

  • So basically pay for the game and then pay extra for the season pass or whatever they are calling it. No thanks I’ll stick with H1Z1.

    • So basically, it’s the same thing as any other non-free game.
      If you don’t like paying for games then stick with mobile

  • CRF450X1968

    Mehh I’m all set with battle royal games, pretty boring tbh

  • Bleu_Hunter11

    We will need PS+ to be able to play???? Or $30 includes the lifetime permission to play it? In other way, why do you expect people pay for PUBG when FORTNITE is free and playable whitout PS+???

  • Should be a free download like Fortnite. I don’t think most people would pay $30 bucks for a gmae that has be out for awhile on a different platform. Fortnite is killing it.

  • Is there cross play? I have friends that play this all the time on Xbox, it would be great to play with them

  • Naughty Dog getting pimped out to promote PUBG

  • Darkness_Risin

    Finally the PS gets a BR worth playing, Fartnut is such garbage, Descisions, Decisions… Digital or Survivors Digital version……

  • LingeringSmoke

    Fack the haters! I’ll be picking this up. Bring on all the battle royale games!

  • It would be helpful to know exactly what “Survival Pass: Vikendi” even is . There is no details on this i can find. What makes that worth 20$ more?

  • OH MY GOD !!!!!!!

  • TOMMYMIRANDA77

    I expected more from PUBG not only me but thousands of people expected the game free to play unfortunately you have to pay playstation plus to play online many people will continue to play fortnite and h1z1

  • i guess if you squint then that kind of looks like nathan drake a little bit

  • Too little, too late. No one’s going to bother playing your crappy game anymore, because we’re all too busy playing Fortnite and Blackout, the superior BR games.

  • nobodyoheartless

    First of all Pubg was never free on Xbox you have to have Xbox Live to play it so whoever said it was free on Xbox was a damn liar. Also fortnite is not a superior game it’s a Cheesy wimpy ass Battle Royale crappy game it was for tonight’s last-ditch to make their game some profit they decide to jump on Battle Royale cuz guess what the original fortnite game still doesn’t make enough sales which was the original game jackasses

    • LoVe4DaGaMe

      Yes, actually just as recently as last weekend PUBG was free all weekend for Xbox users.. with the caveat that they gotta have Xbox Live, because you gotta have xbox live to do anything on Xbox.. and Several times during the lifespan of PUBG being in Early Access they had it on their “Free to play Weekends”.. So you are wrong.. It has been free numerous times.. and they just even put it on the Xbox Game Pass too.. so it should see a solid influx of players over on Xbox as well..

  • What sort of enhancements can we expect for the Pro?

  • Ugh. I told myself that I wasn’t going to buy this game a third time. Then I hear it’s going to be released on my birthday. What’s a guy to do?

  • Day late and a dollar short

  • Wheres the pre order on store ?

  • This was pretty exciting news today! Until I see YOU NEED PLAYSTATION PLUS too. I played mobile with a PS4 controller. I got slaughtered by the emulator players. Dual shock sticks can’t aim quick enough. This would be fun on my big screen at $30. But not $80 fun when PC and mouse are the control you really need to compete.

  • Well we’ll. The game Epic ripped off is coming to go head to head with Fortnite. I hope Epic goes bankrupt. Copying stealing losers.

    • B-rAd_RoCkS02

      You’re an idiot kid…. first of all, PUBG didn’t create the Battle Royale genre so they don’t own it to begin with, they even took on Epic Games in a lawsuit and still lost, and nothing in Fortnite BESIDES the shooting enemies part is like PUBG in anyway, keep dreaming that your little Chinese devs who could care less about their game that’s dying already could take down a company with WAY much more money than they’ll ever have ;)

  • infamousgodV2_0

    I wouldn’t pay $30 for this trash though i’ve been playing it for free over on the xbox 1 x and it is what it is. Save your $30 PlayStation fan wait till it goes to plus next year.

  • Really feel $30 is a bit steep.

  • Pubg has prob has the smallest team of Developers between call of do do and fartnight I been playing on the xbox and mobile and now I’ll get it for the 4!

  • Give it a few months peeps, it’ll be free on ps plus before you know it

  • PedroHorace

    Will you be able to connect a keyboard and mouse have a customizable key bindings? And will it function correctly?

  • dead game

  • Honestly, i thought it was going to be free to play at this point. I wish it runs at least at 30 fps (because it’s horrible on Xbox)
