I'm a little bit confused by this. If you download it for free will you be locked out when it stops being free or have you got it free for life?

It directs you to store after its free period. Same if your Gamepass lapses. It’s installed but won’t launch.

This does actually seem to be different to the usual free weekend, the 'buy this game' option is currently listed as free.

I assume we'll hear what it all means at XO18, maybe it's free for a month or something, it's got its own page which is different to the usual F2P weekend offers. The PU twitter account hasn't mentioned anything.

EDIT - Hang on, I might be wrong there. Just clicked through too and it does indeed seem to be a full purchase. :-)


It's a confusing one! N4G, where I learnt about it, have retracted the free forever comment and say it is just for the weekend. https://n4g.com/news/2216745/playerunkn ... it-forever

However I ordered via my web browser and it says 'You own this game' and 'Full Product Release free for a limited time' which can be read both ways! I think I'm completely within my rights to type ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is PES2018 lister the same way? Maybe it’s on Gamepass already...

Venom its your go to conspiracy guff that’s facepalmy. MS would make the game free to say it has biggest console numbers even though it’s over 10m I mean... :fp:

The Harley Quinn skin is €21

WTF, it’s nearly the same price as the game! :lol:

This survival free Gamepass thing is good tho.

This screenshot is from GameNuke but it's the same thing I saw.

I once downloaded the 'full game' of Injustice 2 and I think that had a timer on it. People in N4G forum & ResetEra speculating that PUBG might be free on PS Plus in December.

If it’s 1 year exclusive it’ll be late dec, like 20th or something.

Hope it does well on PS4, it’s my GOTY by a mile.

You'll eventually get better, last game I had of the night I got 8 kills before the last person alive got me with a grenade. Round before that 3 kills at the very start before some sneaky strawberry floater lying in wait for someone (like me) to jump in a vehicle and kill them.

Can tell theres new players, first time ever in it I got a message off someone as soon as I killed them complaining of camping when it was him doing the camping at the bottom of the prison building :slol:

I've been playing squads as obviously that's going to be the easiest way to win a match. But half the time I have no idea what they're shooting at. I suppose it's easier if you actually talk to people, but strawberry float that. :lol:

Yeah I had to switch to TPP as I wasn't getting any matches. It's not too bad.

On a plus side the quick go i had i thought it was pretty smooth and sharp enough on xb1s, don't like double tap trigger to zoom though, give it more of a go over the weekend.

Change control setup to B. Performance wise its smooth as strawberry float now on the X, still looks ugly but it's not one I play for its looks.

As KJ says change to set up B, it makes a huge difference.

Latest update has gotten rid of Playdough buildings on X1X. They are and odd occurrence, several patches ago they where gone and then in subsequent patches they'd return.

It's not 60fps but yeah it's pretty smooth these days, even with the rain and fog in full effect. Just don't throw a smoke grenade, my X1S mates lol at the frame rates when that happens.

Had a brief go last night and got a kill because of the new headphones I got for my birthday. They have an 'advanced hearing' setting and although using it gets rid of all bass, I heard a dude crouch walking about and ran up to him and killed him from behind he didn't even hear me at all. I was well impressed.

I'll be up for some games tonight (if my mates aren't on). Learning the ropes with KJ or myself would be a huge help I reckon. I'm not playing Sanhook though, strawberry float that map.
