The popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) appears to be finally coming to PlayStation 4.

New reports imply that PUBG will make its debut on the Sony gaming console in December.

A recent post on the ResetEra forum claims that several game files of PUBG have been found on the North American and European PSN stores. The forum’s administrator ZhugeEX, whose real identity is video game analyst Daniel Ahmad, seemingly confirms this, telling readers that the PS4 version of PUBG will be coming next month.

PUBG is coming to PS4

This further supports the theory that PUBG’s developer Bluehole had signed an exclusivity deal of 12 months with Microsoft, since the Xbox One version of PUBG debuted on December 12, 2017.

We can expect that the PS4 version will launch at roughly the same time this year. It might even include the new winter map as well.

In addition to the PS4 release news, Bluehole also reveals that it plans to expand PUBG’s eSports scene into a global competition next year.

The national PUBG League in North America and the PUBG Europe League have already been announced. Besides these two, there are seven other leagues in various regions of the world: China, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Chinese Taipei/Macau/Hong Kong, Oceania, and Latin America.

The top teams from each of these regions will advance to international competitions, where they will have to meet each other.

The game is getting a new competitive schedule

The competition season will consist of three phases. After phases one and two, the qualified teams will participate in smaller events hosted by third parties. An All-Star event will also take place at a certain point in the season.

After the third phase is completed, there will come the Global Championship, in which teams battle for the chance to win a prize pool of $2 million and the right to claim that they are the best PUBG players across the entire world.

All of the nine regional leagues will occur at the same time, and follow the same rules, point systems, and settings. Each region has 16 competing teams, with each team having 4 players. The maps used are Erangel and Miramar, and games will be played in first-person mode.

This new competitive schedule will begin in January 2019.
