If you’re a PC gamer or have a favorite Twitch streamer, chances are you’ve already played plenty battle royale survival games. There are a ton out there, ranging from massive open worlds like H1Z1 and DayZ to more contained affairs like The Culling. For the past few months, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has slowly risen to the top, evolving with community help into the master of the genre. And in late 2017, Xbox One gamers will be able to experience the 100 player survival deathmatch as well.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One – 4K Trailer:
Xbox One console launch exclusive. PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is a tactical, last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback where players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a massive 8×8 km island to be the lone survivor. Not Just a Game. This is BATTLE ROYALE.
But the news that Battlegrounds would be coming to Xbox One wasn’t the only battle royale news Microsoft had up their sleeve. Soon after, we got the world reveal for The Darwin Project from Scavengers Studio. Don’t let the cartoonish looks fool you, this looks to be just as brutal as the most cutthroat survival deathmatches. The official word at this point is that it will launch in Spring 2018 on Xbox One and PC, with no word yet on other consoles.
