PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will launch as an exclusive to the Xbox One later this year, as announced at Microsoft’s big E3 showcase. Developer Brendan Greene took the stage to announce the news, noting the the port would also include enhancements for the Xbox One X when it comes out.

If you’re not familar with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), it’s sort of like The Hunger Games or Battle Royale put into video game form. In the game, 100 players are dropped onto an island, left to forage for weapons, vehicles, and supplies, and duke it out until only one player is left standing. Released on PC earlier this year, the game has since become a massive hit, especially inside the streaming community.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds releases for Xbox One in “late 2017.”
