PUBG Launches December 7 With a PlayStation-Exclusive Gift

Learn how PUBG has evolved and get details on the exclusive Pixel Art Parachute launch login gift.

Hey everyone, we are back with another PUBG dev blog! PUBG has had a relatively quick, but intense, journey up until this point. The game has released on other platforms in the last two years with changes throughout the many phases of alpha and beta testing, from performance improvements and optimization, new weapons, new maps, new vehicles, and more.

Now that we’re getting ready to launch the game on PlayStation 4 on December 7, we’d like to reflect on our development and feedback from our community, which has brought PUBG to where it is today.

The Road to Launch

When we first started developing PUBG for console, the game was released as a beta, meaning stability was something we worked very hard to address. After a long beta phase and feedback from the community, optimization and stabilization became key for us. It was quite the challenge for the dev team to juggle our focus on stability while trying not to delay content that our community had been asking for, like newer maps. But this was a challenge that we were willing to take on.

While we’ve grown considerably since our initial introduction on consoles, user experience and stability will always remain a pivotal aspect of our development. We are also focused on adding new content to the game and bringing Custom Matches, Ranked System, and Event Mode to the PS4 version after launch. We’ve very excited to take the lessons we’ve learned and share them with the PlayStation community when we launch.

PlayStation Launch Day – December 7

What can you expect on launch day? You’ll get to experience the heart-pounding, last-man standing action of PUBG gameplay on three iconic maps:

  • Erangel, the first map of PUBG. An 8×8 km map resembling a Russian military testing facility
  • Miramar, the second map created for PUBG. An 8×8 km map set in the deserts of Central and South America
  • Sanhok, the smallest map (4×4 km) based in the jungles of the Southeast Asia region

In addition, we’re excited to announce an exclusive gift for our PlayStation community to celebrate the launch. Starting on December 7, simply log into the game to receive the Pixel Art Parachute, inspired by the PlayStation iconic blue.

    you can’t even call that a “flex” that’s some pretty low frames on a “home built pc”.

    Lol you’re only getting 120 frames, you must’ve bought a walmart PC. Don’t try to flex on people when your PC is trash. Come back when you’re not poor and can afford 200 frames+

As you should, no need to crap on consoles. You have a beast of pc, why are even concerned about consoles?.

Depois do lançamento de PUBG no PS4 o preço de oferta que já está é já uma promoção, ou terá desconto com a assinatura PLUS?

– Pra mim esse preço dos mais completos está muito alto igual todos também acham!

So the PUBG preorder download has started but there’s two? One is PUBG and the other is PUBG PTS? What’s that about?

    adadion said:

    I believe its PUBG Test Server. Just like on Steam version. When there will be patch update incoming, we can test ourselves for upcoming patch in PUBG PTS first.

Anxiously counting down the hours till 9:00pm Thursday night, so I dont have to play PUBG Mobile anymore

Touchscreen is ok and all but it doesn’t even begin to compare to a dualshock 4 in my hands. See you guys on the battlegrounds!
