With Black Friday getting closer, more deals have sprung up for the big sales day on November 23. Some of the deals are already live, so take a look below to see what kinds of discounts to expect. That will help you make a game plan for when all the game deals go live. One of the discounts we’ve highlighted here is for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, otherwise known as PUBG.
As of now, PUBG on Xbox One will have some upcoming sales at Best Buy, Target, and Walmart for less than $20. In addition to this game, we also had an upcoming look at sales for other games including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, God of War, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4–which recently launched the series’ first crack at the battle royale genre.
Though other games like Fortnite have overtaken PUBG’s former dominance in the growing field of free-for-all games, it’s still a popular title and has a solid player base on both PC and Xbox One. With three different maps to fight it out on, and featuring many different types of skins, weapon decals, and other customization options–PUBG focuses a lot more on tactical gameplay compared to the Fortnite’s more arcadey style action. The most recent event happening in the world of PUBG is a promotional tie-in featuring the Joker and Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad.
In our review of PUBG last year, editor Michael Higham gave it an 8 and stated: “PUBG’s technical shortcomings can undermine its broader achievements on rare occasions, but they don’t override your desire to continue playing. Each phase of a match presents a different type of tension that is equal parts thrilling and terrifying, driven by the insatiable desire to be the last person (or squad) standing. Whether you play solo or in a group, successfully executing adaptive tactics to win intense, high-stakes firefights makes for an incredibly rewarding experience. Every player has unique stories of their most memorable matches, and even after hundreds of hours, PUBG continues to inspire rousing tales of victory and defeat.”
