No free trial for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Xbox One launch, 'prioritizing server stability'

After much fanfare, one of the best selling games of the year has finally arrived on the Xbox One.

To reload your weapon, you have to long-press X, this should be a tap. In addition, its PC version has faced similar problems and players have had to resort to some tricks to get some additional frames per second.

And then there is aiming, unlike every other FPS where you have to hold the left trigger to ADS (aim down sights), in PUBG, you tap the trigger and it stays in the ADS position until you tap it again.

In the meantime, it's worth pointing out that the Xbox One file size for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds could be extended if players chose to purchase some of the cosmetic DLC that was available from December 7 to December 10.

You can already play PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds early on Xbox One's Game Preview program, but PC owners have to wait just over a week until they can try out the 1.0 PUBG launch.

A first-person mode would have served as a better introduction to the gameplay, since you won't have to worry about the awful setup for dual-aiming that much. Even though it shares an 8 km x 8 km size just like Erangel, because of the areas of interest being spread apart and there being a lot more land mass compared to bodies of water, there's a lot more data players need to collect. Pressing B will allow you to crouch but holding B will make your character lie prone to the ground.

What I'd like to draw special attention to, is when DF mentions the "significantly improved" draw distances on Xbox One X (at 5:50 in the video).

It needs the smallest amount of auto-aim, and it desperately needs its control scheme to be simplified if PUBG wants to feel like a console game, rather than a PC game controlled with a gamepad. One of the main concerns in the release of the game to the Xbox One is how well the controls will be translated, but it appears that the developers did a good job.
