Microsoft has announced the next Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days game: it’s PUBG.
The popular battle royale shooter will be available to download and play free of charge from April 19th-22nd.
Players will have access to the Xbox Game Preview version of PUBG.
This from a release on Xbox Wire:
“During Free Play Days players will be able to download and play the full Xbox Game Preview version of PUBG including all multiplayer modes (solo, duos, squads). Any Battle Points (BP) you earn during the Free Play Days period will carry over to the game should you purchase it when the Free Play Days period has ended.”
The event begins just after midnight, with players able to download PUBG straight from the dash:
“April 19 at 12:01 a.m. PDT to Sunday, April 22 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Once the event begins, download the game by clicking on the Gold Member feature area on the Xbox Live home dashboard, or search for the game on the Microsoft Store via the Xbox Dashboard.”
