The Xbox One version of PUBG is the exact same as the version that's now on the PC, and the game is also going to be getting some new content in the near future, such as a new map that takes place in a desert with a city, rather than on the rural island that the game's first map was on. With the game no longer being exclusive to the PC, console players (at least on the Xbox) can now get in on the fun as well. The Vehicle Mode works similarly to how driving mechanics in games like the "Grand Theft Auto" series were handles in the Xbox, with additional controls like pressing A to switch seats or holding the A button to put on the seatbelt.

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.

Microsoft has also provided a preview of what the controls would look like on the Xbox One controller, as laid out in a detailed post on the Xbox Wire blog.

Without the ability to snap your view around quickly using the mouse, you're much less aware of what was going on around you. If you have played on the PC previously you'll know there is a lot to manage as well as trying to stay alive.

Each of my gunfights also played out far differently on console, with players delicately strafing around one another over a matter of minutes rather than the usual seconds.

It's just plain hard to hit your target using a controller, and the game can feel a little slushy as a result.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, better known as PUBG, became a phenomenon on PC and even toppled League of Legends at times as the most-streamed game on Twitch. You can see the difference between the normal servers and the test server, above.

Many Early Access games on Steam that make their way to Microsoft's console now have a dedicated home in the Game Preview program if they are still being developed.

Xbox One owners have been anticipating the launch of PUBG on the Xbox One since the game was announced at E3 2017.
