PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds releasing for PlayStation 4 on December 7, with Naughty Dog bonuses

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) will finally be released on PlayStation next month, it has been confirmed.

The hit battle royale game was first available for PC gamers in March 2017, before being released on Xbox One in September that year.

PUBG is set for release on the PlayStation 4 (PS4) this coming December 7 and customers who pre-order will receive a Nathan Drake outfit from the Uncharted series and Ellie's backpack from The Last of Us to use in-game.

Koo Sung Jeong, developer PUBG Corp's PS4 lead project manager, says getting the game completed by the year's end felt almost unachievable.

"One of most memorable moments while developing was the first time we had 100 people join a test match. Before the test, the dev team's mission was to deliver the finished product this year - it was a big challenge and it felt almost impossible," said Jeong.

"But as soon as we had 100 people drop in for the test, our confidence started to build and we pushed ourselves harder to make everything happen. We are proud of the game we have created and can't wait to get it into your hands."

PUBG is already one of the best-selling games of all time, with over 50 million copies sold worldwide. Its main competitor has been Fortnite, but other, more established shooter franchises like Call of Duty and Battlefield are also now releasing with battle royale modes.
