At E3 2017, Microsoft partnered with Bluehole Studios to launch PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on the Xbox One family of devices. Not only did Microsoft hit an excellent homerun after picking up on Bluehole’s huge success of PUBG on the PC, but Microsoft also announced that the title would come with a host of features catered towards the Xbox One player base as well.
Some of the latest reports include the absence of aim-assist for Xbox One players along with the suspicion if Microsoft would allow PC and Xbox One players to chime into the game together. Even if they do, it seems like Microsoft would try to play it fair between the two platforms by balancing out the advantages mice and keyboards would bring to the table.

In Microsoft’s recent live stream regarding the launch of the One X, Microsoft’s Major Nelson has been a phenomenal influencer in promoting Microsoft’s Xbox One family of devices.
