PUBG Corporation has issued an apology for problems with the distribution of the in-game currency BP following the full release of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds in December, and promised that players who were shortchanged will be taken care of. That's impressive numbers for any game, let alone one that is still in the preview program. "Can you sort the hackers out please instead of this BP bullshit, no one gives a shit about BP", they wrote.

The PC version hit version 1.0 on December 22 and the release included the new desert map. Players will enter a last-man-standing battle where they try to locate weapons, vehicles and supplies in a graphically and tactically rich battleground that eventually forces players into a shrinking safe area as they engage in a tense and spectacular fight to the death. With so many players, the team at PUBG Corp. has been hard at work bringing quality of life improving updates to the game, as well as new features.

There are more updates planned including this week's addition of first-person support for solo, duo, and squads gameplay. We know that PUBG sold over 20 million copies on PC but we didn't have any idea what the recent player count was on Xbox One.

And yet it is also hugely popular, and many game reviewers have hailed it as the best game of 2017.

The early morning strike occurred approximately 50 kilometers west of Mogadishu, the Somalian capital. Al-Shabaab was pushed out of Mogadishu in 2011 and has lost control of most of Somalia's major towns.

The game has been breaking records ever since it came out and even managed to pass a million players in the first 48 hours on Xbox One.

Still, that did not stop players from becoming suspicious of the new system, as the crates and its contents can actually be sold by players for real-world money, making it an in-game economic system which allegedly benefits both the developers and Steam, the market platform for the game. At the time, the developer said that it's aware of all affected players. Prior to that, she has only released on early access.
