Real supply drops celebrate PUBG's Australian Xbox One launch

Share

Those lucky enough to find the drop have the chance to win prizes that include Xbox One X consoles and Elite Controllers, Xbox Live codes, PUBG swag and, of course, PUBG game codes that will unlock on 12 December, the game's console launch date. We just got our first look and details on how to get them.

Microsoft has announced that the first of three exclusive DLC packs for the game is about to go on sale.

The PUBG Warrior Pack includes four items: a balaclava hat, camo t-shirt, trousers and tennis shoes to customize your character in style. While $10 may seem like a high price for just four items, it's worth noting that some PUBG players are willing to pay thousands of dollars for cosmetics. The remaining two packs - the PUBG Accessory Pack and PUBG Tracksuit Pack - will release on December 14th and 21st respectively, for $4.99. Each of those packs will cost $5.

Microsoft explains that these are the only in-game purchases that will be available for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds players while the game is part of the Xbox Game Preview program. Xbox Australia are, perhaps irresponsibly, planning to release real world versions of the game's coveted supply drops into your neighbourhood this very weekend.

Both the Xbox team and PUBG Corp. have been working closely together to bring the hottest game on the planet to the Xbox Game Preview program and are super excited to be able to bring these soon to be rare cosmetic items to Xbox fans who have been eagerly awaiting the game as a special thank you for your patience and passion for PUBG. Tomorrow, new gameplay footage of the game's desert map will be revealed during The Game Awards.

It will available when PUBG launches, later this month and will be the replacement for the R1895 revolver from the Erangel map which will not be in the desert map. An Xbox One early access version is scheduled for December 12th.
