Now Playing: GS News Update: You Can Buy Some PUBG Xbox One Items Before The Game Is Even Available

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Bluehole's massively successful battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, arrives on Xbox One next week. Before then, however, players will have a chance to purchase some exclusive items for the game.

Beginning December 7, Xbox One owners will be able to purchase the PUBG Warrior Pack, the first of three cosmetic item packs that will only be available for the Xbox One version of the game. The Warrior Pack includes four items that can be used to customize your character: a balaclava hat, as well as a camo t-shirt, pants, and tennis shoes.

The PUBG Warrior Pack costs $10 and will only be available for a limited time, until December 10. It will be followed by the PUBG Accessory Pack from December 14-17 and the Tracksuit Pack from December 21-22. Each of those packs will cost $5. You can see some of the items from them above.

As previously mentioned, these three packs will only be available for Xbox One players. They'll also be the only items you can purchase in that version of the game during its preview period. However, publisher Bluehole has said that more loot boxes are on the way to PUBG, though the publisher assures that the boxes will "never" contain any items that could affect gameplay.

PUBG launches for Xbox One via the Game Preview program on December 12. Like the early access PC version, it will cost $30. The game launches in full on PC later this month; before then, players will have a chance to try out PUBG's new desert map, Miramar, which will be available during the "final test round" before its version 1.0 release. The map will also feature an exclusive new vehicle.

Because this worked out so well for Evolve..... This game is going to bomb big time on console. **** these shitty game practices, I'm so sick of them. I've been gaming for 30 years and am about to end it.

Tho no one want micros of any sorts, this is at least tolerable. As opposed to say Fortnite, where a new pic axe will cost you $10-12 USD. A new outfit alone is 20! Wtf. Now 5 dollars for say 3 tracc suits, I can live with. Im payin 30 for the game, I can show a lil support with $5 more dollars. Fair enough.

Edit: With no other in game purchases, how can you really complain.

If greedy publishers have their way this is what the future of gaming will look like, new action game coming in 2018 loot boxes will be sold for $20 but if you buy them now you will get a big discount, only $15 for the loot box, act now before its too late.

Imagine if they spent the time on making the game optimized and great instead of trying to monetize it further and further every fucking moment.

Even though it's purely cosmetic, it's disgusting and is a clear enemy of the actual game's development.
