PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is celebrating yet another milestone on Xbox One. PUBG has reached 5 million players in less than three months.

In the blog post, Xbox says that they “greatly appreciate all the feedback received from the community which is helping us create the best and most realistic Battle Royale experience.” The ninth patch for the game was just released on March 2. It improved vehicle feedback, sound effects, matchmaking and more. Last week, Xbox shared the spring development roadmap on what we should expect in the coming weeks, including a new map.

To celebrate reaching the milestone, there are few new things to enjoy today. Xbox is debuting a new video asset for PUBG featuring the community of players around the world. They also put together an infographic featuring gameplay achievements since launch.

The last thing they are doing is giving an exclusive free cosmetic item, the PUBG5 jacket. The jacket will be given to all players who have already activated a character on Xbox One as of March 22, 2018 at 12:01 PST.
