PUBG game data appears on PlayStation servers

Another battle royale game possibly for PlayStation users?

After nearly a year since its release for the PC and the Xbox One, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) continues to be one of the most popular battle royale games in today’s generation. Now, newly found evidence suggests that PUBG could find another home under another popular console, expanding its reach into the market even further.

ResetERA member Taker34 shares information from Sony fan site PSNProfiles.com about digital game IDs for PUBG on the PlayStation 4. Such data include game images and Content IDs for the North American and European versions of the game. These game codes appeared on Sony’s public PlayStation servers, but searching for the game using the code shows no other information regarding price or release dates.

PUBG was initially released in Early Access for the PC in March 2017 before hitting the Xbox One as a “console exclusive” game later in December. The popular battle royale game shared mixed reviews for its Xbox One release, citing multiple performance issues. Despite such issues, the game’s player base continues to grow, especially with the recent success of the free-to-play PUBG Mobile. With this latest development, talks of cross-play across both the Xbox One and the PS4 could potentially resurface — much like the case with Fortnite earlier this year.

Speculations of the game’s availability stemmed from a filling for a PS4 game rating in South Korea over a month ago. Fans and users on several forums for the game suggest that the game will potentially launch in December 2018, a year since its Xbox One release. As of writing, executives from Sony Interactive Entertainment America have yet to accept requests for comments on the topic.

A delay in release did not stop Square Enix from teasing Final Fantasy fans even more. This time, however, the company is  just giving us two things to prepare our minds and hearts for the remake.

The first one, as you’ve seen from the header image, an HD recreation of Cloud Strife and his trusty motorcycle. An entire cast literally joins him in the picture, including Aerith, Tifa, Barret, and even Red XIII. Looks like this is just feeding more details on character art, more than anything else.

The second one is actually a behind-the-scenes look into the end theme of the whole remake. Nobuo Uematsu guides us through the creative process behind the end theme, including the recording sessions for it. To see more of it, here’s the entire behind-the-scenes footage:

Luring in gamers

NVIDIA GeForce NOW is now available for general audience after it entered beta last year. Starting today, gamers can opt for either of the two tiers: Free and Founders.

Gamers on Free tier have to contend with a one-hour gameplay limit. Plus, they maybe put on a wait list for a certain game if there is too much demand. Meanwhile, gamers on Founders tier have priority access to games, a six-hour gameplay limit, and support for RTX.

Unlike its competitors, NVIDIA’s game streaming service supports more devices. It is available now in Windows, macOS, Android and SHIELD TV platform, with Chromebook support coming in the future.

This game streaming service also works differently than Google’s Stadia and Microsoft’s XCloud. It streams supported games from the Steam library, Epic Games Store, Battle.net, and Uplay.

There is no need to purchase a game as gamers can simply stream it if the service supports it. Smooth gameplay is guaranteed with support of up to 1080 at 60FPS.

Pricing and availability

GeForce NOW is available on all 30 countries across North America and Europe. Beta users are migrated automatically. For those planning to pay for the Founders tier, they will only have to shell out US$ 4.99 per month.
