Preording PUBG won’t just get you the game, however. You’ll get some PlayStation-exclusive content for both in and out of the game. The in-game goods feature imagery from two iconic Sony franchises. With the Nathan Drake Desert Outfit skin, you’ll look like you stepped right out of Uncharted. You’ll also get access to Ellie’s backpack from The Last of Us, making you feel like you can take on anything, from Clickers to fellow players.

You’ll also be gifted with some aesthetic items to use outside of the game, too. A PUBG preorder will gift you with both a PUBG PSN avatar and theme! You’ll never have to leave the battleground with these equipped!

The PUBG announcement comes after an increasing number of leaks emerged. A PUBG icon originally appeared on PS4 servers, sparking rumors of a December release. Then came an Amazon leak that featured a December 8th release date, which ultimately turned out to be off (by only a day, though). The most recent leak came from an alleged PlayStation ad that recently popped up, fueling the rumors even more. Well, it’s finally real now.
