Microsoft is giving PUBG for free to those that purchase an Xbox One X

Today, Microsoft announced a new promotion for the world's most powerful gaming console, the Xbox One X. If you buy it between December 17 and the end of the year, you'll get a free copy of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Interestingly, this is one of the first promotions that the company has offered for its new console at all. Unlike with the Xbox One S, there are no bundles yet available for the One X. In fact, we've inquired with a number of people from Microsoft, and the company hasn't even been willing to confirm that bundles are coming (of course, this doesn't mean that they're not coming).

So, for the first time, you can get a free game with your Xbox One X purchase. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was only released for the Xbox One family of devices this week, and normally it costs $29.99 in the United States. While the game has been enhanced for the new console, it's only listed as having HDR, and it's also locked to 30fps. While it's not listed as being a 4K game, players have discovered a graphics menu shows it as running at 2160p, or 4K, on the new console.

Still, PUBG is one of the most popular games around. If you like shooters, it's probably going to be something that you'll want to pick up, so you may as well cash in on the freebie.
