PUBG Announces Loot Box Item Drop Rates In New Update Patch Notes

It's the only console with this type of preview service, allowing gamers to help test the quality and performance of games ahead of full launch - albeit usually for a fee, with PUBG on Xbox One costing $29.99/£24.99 at this point, or free when you buy a new Xbox One X. Neither PlayStation nor Nintendo offer such a service on PS4 or Switch, so it's more hard to offer access on those platforms until the game is actually finished. Last month developer PUBG Corp revealed that the game had 30 million players across Xbox and PC, despite the game only launching in March 2017. The most recent patch re-introduced keys that unlock premium crates to the game, but eventhough it's been revealed that the odds of getting any of the rare items in the game are stacked against you, this isn't what most PUBG players on Steam are now complaining about.

Many other similarly structured games are expected over the years ahead, hoping to ape and hopefully improve on the PUBG formula. It is available on Xbox One and PC, with the former being in the Xbox Game Preview program.

For players just getting started, there will be a Tips and Tricks segment on Mixer at 3 p.m. PST on January 16 to share tips on inventory management and showcase UX shortcuts and features on the Xbox One controller. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds continues its reign as a sales behemoth and as a smart move for Microsoft. PUBG has seen around four updates since its launch, which amounts to about one update per week.

It's no secret that PUBG was the biggest PC game release of 2017. As soon as the players land, they can explore the various buildings in search of weapons, vehicles, clothing, armor, tactical equipment, medicines, and other things.


The game's Xbox One launch, however, didn't go without its hiccups.

According to official statistics, the game of Minecraft to date, sold nearly 27.6 million worldwide.

These new paid crates come with cosmetic items and there a limit of six crates per week with the cap being reset every Monday at 12AM UTC. It has made significant strides in improving gameplay and fans are now happy with the new results.
