Xbox Is Dropping Real PUBG Crates In Australia
Xbox Australia's absurd and cool promotional events continue with a unique campaign to support the launch of PUBG next week on Xbox One. Microsoft is dropping three "supply drops" in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane--one in each.
The crates are stuffed with 25 items, including some pretty desirable things such as Xbox One X consoles and Elite controllers, as well as Xbox Live codes and codes for PUBG. Also in the crates is unspecified PUBG loot.
Microsoft will disclose the location of the loot crates (and the password to unlock them) on the Xbox ANZ Facebook page, so bookmark this page and check it often. The crates will be available on Saturday, December 9, which is also when the passwords will be disclosed. You have to say the password to the Xbox staffer at the crate to unlock it.
PUBG launches for Xbox One via the Game Preview program on December 12. Like the early access PC version, it will cost $30. The game launches in full on PC later this month; before then, players will have a chance to try out PUBG's new desert map, Miramar, which will be available during the "final test round" before its version 1.0 release. The map will also feature an exclusive new vehicle.
This is just the latest over-the-top promotion from Xbox Australia. In October, the company launched pop-up hotel where people could sleep over and play the Xbox One X before it was released.
