PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback. Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor. This realistic, high tension game is set on a massive 8x8 km island with a level of detail that showcases Unreal Engine 4's capabilities.
PLAYERUNKNOWN aka Brendan Greene, is a pioneer of the Battle Royale genre. As the creator of the Battle Royale game-mode found in the ARMA series and H1Z1 : King of the Kill, Greene is co-developing the game with veteran team at Bluehole to create the most diverse and robust Battle Royale experience to date
Not Just a Game. This is BATTLE ROYALE

PU's Battlegrounds is quite a surprise hit. It's a battle royal type game that puts dozens of players on a map and tells you to be the last survivor. You scavenge little villages, military bases, prisons etc. for armour and weapons, and then try to take out the competition. Simple and it works. You can even win the game without firing a single shot if you play well enough, and smart play is rewarded here. This is undoubtedly fun to play, both solo and with friends, but it is still Early Access game. You will find dozens of hours of gameplay here if you like the core gameplay loop, but there are also games like WarZ, DayZ, H1Z1 and a lot of other similar and not so similar early access games they've gotten incredibly positive first impressions, but then failed or made changes that pissed everyone off or devs ran out etc. there's a story for every game. This is one of the few EA games that I've thoroughly enjoyed though, but who knows what the future of PUBG truly is.
Pros: -Balanced weapons - Every gun feels strong for what its worth, even the pistols -Gameplay - Gameplay feels rewarding, whether its getting kills, finding loot or just surviving, it feels pretty cool -Squad/Duos - Because of the nature of the game, squad and duo queues are a lot more fun than in games such as H1Z1 (In my personal opinion). There's a lot more teamwork involved in encounters and if you get caught out on your own, you're screwed -Variety - There are loads of different weapons and mods at your disposal. Whether you choose to be a stealthy sniper or Rambo is up to you. Cons: -Servers - Spawning in is horrific. I've noticed it more in solos, but during landing (another con) and the first few minutes, people will teleport around, and you will occasionally rubber band. After a few minutes its alright. -Landing - Jumping out of the plane - fine. Flying down - fine. Actually landing with the parachute - Painful, infuriating and slow. If you're not over flat ground be prepared to descend at around 1 nanometre a second, and if you land on a wall or in between a narrow space, be prepared to hang there for around a minute, spamming F to cut your parachute but it wont let you. -Performance - Not really a con, more of a warning, but I run the game at around 40fps with a 960 with everything on low. You'll need a beefy card to run the game well. Buy the game, its great. Once the server issues are fixed, I wont see much wrong with the game. For an early access game, this is one that I would say is worth buying.
I will first disclose that I normally don't care for battle royale-style games like this, but I got quite intrigued after hearing how fun the game is and also that its far more stable then H1Z1 and DayZ, so I decided to buy it. Its fairly challenging at first, especially since most players will instantly go for areas with buildings to try and snatch a weapon for themselves, but the game encourages you to be tactical in your approach. There's even some ghillie suits lying about and they can basically make you the king of the game because of their superior camouflage, even more so if you've managed to find a sniper rifle or crossbow. The devs are working pretty much around the clock to fix any potential issues that might pop up AND they're not gonna add any loot crates or such until after the game has left Early Access, which is a huge relief since its happened a little too often that Early Access devs have put in microtransactions while the game is still being developed.
