At long last, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is finally heading to consoles - and what's more, it'll happen before the end of the year.

A press statement from Microsoft this morning confirmed PUBG's release date as December 12th, 2017 and announced three cosmetic packs to go along with it. Pricing has yet to be confirmed, but the statement did also state that no in-game purchases are to be added during the game's preview phase - other than the cosmetic packs just mentioned.

PUBG's popularity has skyrocketed in the past twelve months and has a daily community of just under one million players per day.
