PUBG’s First-Ever Free Weekend Has Begun on Xbox One (For XBL Gold Members)

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)'s stratospheric rise in popularity on PC and console has been curious, in particular because of its $30 cost of entry—a fact that sets it apart from its popular, free-to-play rival Fortnite Battle Royale.

Free? You still have to pay for Xbox Live.

At least Sony doesn’t require PS Plus for f2p games unlike Microsoft.

Do you nitpick everything ?

Xbox live is always optional. You don’t need it in order to play the Xbox. Yes you need it to play online, but for everything else, no you don’t

Then explain Fortnite. Why is Xbox Live required but PS Plus isn’t?

Interesting they picked the weekend the heavily rumored demise of Tilted Towers was suppose to go down (but didn't). Probably just a coincidence.

Still. I already own PUBG. I prefer Fortnite, but PUBG is a nice alternative if Fortnite isn't your style.

In other words the “early access title” is finally acting like a beta with free trials

And us poor suckers that actually paid to beta test their game
