There isn't a trial for it so it mostly sales.
Strong start for PUBG sales on Xbox - Leaderboard showing 500K players 24hrs after launch #VGN— THE RED DRAGON (@TWTHEREDDRAGON) December 13, 2017
I was rank 430k earlier today in NA and Wooden was 50k in Europe so the 500k number seems legit.
Also an Xbox insider said it's selling well.
