Is this on the xbox store yet for Pre Order? I couldn't find it last night.


I can't find it either. I read on Reddit that it likely won't be available to pre-order digitally seeing as it's a Game Preview game. There will probably be an hour-long trial though.
seems like you can pre-order

From what I understand that's the physical edition (just a card which comes with a code that you can't redeem until launch day).

So from what I can tell PUBG will be available in NZ at midnight tonight. That's going by this post by Major Nelson. 

Is anyone else here planning on playing it at midnight? I'm a bit concerned about the lack of New Zealanders playing it at that time. I wish they had made Australia launch at the same time.

I'm lucky my wife asked me about something else on it, and I saw that instead!

Placed 18th in my first match after getting killed by the forcefield. Mixed feelings on that one.

Circle management, and circle RNG is certainly one of the main things to keep an eye on in this. Try to avoid any firefights if the circle is moving, particularly towards end game as the damage the circle does is higher later in the game. If you can get into the next circle early you can quite often pick off other players who have left their run late and already hurting. Worst feeling dying outside playzone when you have good loot and ready for a fight!

Today's botch included finding a SCAR and flak vest in the same room, then walking outside to wreck some fools but sliding down a slight incline and dying.

 

Good things.

Played and streamed last night, was really fun actually. managed to get #2 in Duo with Wugga, lost to a single person who shot Wugga then I was stuck in cover as the barrier encroached on my position. Following that a few early finishes and then a couple of Top40s. 

Played a couple of games today, being successful with a Top12 finish in a solo game. Really looking forward to playing some more of this, which is funny considering how much Fortnite I played and was hopeful it would be as comparable.

 

It's currently getting a lot of stick for running atrociously, but people still don't seem to understand that it is a BETA. It's not finished. Don't expect AAA polished quality from a (technically indie) BETA title. Yes, they've developed it on PC but it's still a port. Albeit it's currently it's a bad port but it's playable...

It's technically a Beta but when your buying it off the shelf in a store I feel like the line is far too blurred.

When you can walk in and pick up the item off the shelf then no matter what you out on the box it's a game being sold.

Also people criticising it for that is good so people know not to buy it now expecting a polished game. Inforrmed consumers and all that jazz.

In my first solo game after playing some squad games I managed to get 3rd, the circle was so small by then so I hid in a corner like a baby an still got killed.

Had a few duo games were we came 2nd an 3rd. It does take a bit to get used to the controls but it's alot of fun I would like the see the look down iron sights changed from a trigger tap to just press like every other shooter is.

11 in my first ever game - lost track of time when I found a rocket launcher or something, and tried to run instead of getting back on my bike. A bit more glitchy than I expected (never played Pc) but still fun
