What Is Playerunknown's Battlegrounds?!

Author: Olly

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is a Battle Royale game running on the Unreal Engine 4, developed and published by Bluehole. PLAYERUNKNOWN is previous modder Brendan Greene, who was responsible for the battle royale mods for DayZ and was a consultant on H1Z1, and has now developed his own version of the game with the South Korean developer.

The Premise

100 players are dropped from a plane over a 8km x 8km island, players can choose when to jump out, but the plane's route varies from match to match. Players then must land somewhere on the island with no items, and be the last person or team standing. They must find weapons, medicine, attachments, clothing, armour and bags throughout the island to help them, and rare vehicles are dotted around such as jeeps and bikes.

However, every few minutes the area of play is made smaller, gradually bringing all remaining players to a deadly last fight in a specific part of the map. To survive in PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, players must strike the balance between stealth, intelligence, cunning and fighting skill, complete with a good dose of luck. The last standing player will be rewarded with the ever-coveted chicken dinner.
