PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online game where multiple players fight against each other in a survival of the fittest. Developed by Brendan Greene, also known by his online named Player Unknown, Unknown BattleGround follows the genre of The Hunger Games and other notable stories of one versus everybody else for the last person to stand. It is a highly favourite game that was released in April and could become the next eSport. But for those who have just begun to play it or isn’t aware of what the rage is about, here is a rundown.
Greene, an Irish-born programmer, developed the militaristic DayZ module and started to incorporate military situations with open-end gameplay for users. He inserted a random degree of where it would be difficult for players to know where exactly they are because most multi-player shooting games had small maps players would remember. The setting is influenced by the derelict buildings from the Soviet Union and weeds through the streets of rusted American cities from the Depression. Greene took to PUBG to Bluehole Ginno Games in South Korea to complete the making of the game.
This is a player-vs.-player The game in which one hundred players get together in a death match, also called a Battle Royale, fight each other till the last player stands. They can be a solo player or in groups. The matches start with players parachuting from a plane (not literally, only in virtual reality)into an area on an island eight by 8 kilometres significant with the use of weapons available to be strategic in killing the opponent before you are killed. As the remaining players shrink, so does the size, so there is no place to hide; there are noted safe zones and blue zones where you must stay in bounds or your player dies.
When players are parachuted off, they must quickly decide when is the best time to jump off and parachute to the ground. When landing, players can search all over to find any pistols, rifles, shotguns, grenades, vehicles, armour, helmets, and other stuff that is helpful to the battle. They are spread out throughout the island at the beginning of a round, with dangerous zones having better things to find when going up against others. These goods can also be taken from a dead player. This multiplayer game has no offline or single-player mode that can be played in either third-person or first-person view.
PUBG was released to high acclaim by both players and in the industry. The many things a player can do in this shooting game has brought the excitement in such a short period. In two weeks, the game sold over one million copies, USD 34 million in just one month from its release. By the end of the year, it sold over twenty-four million copies, equaling USD 712 million in gross revenue. The hype has proven to be legitimate, and it is never too late for a gamer to get involved in this shooting gallery.
