PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now properly out, with a 1.0 version number to complement its improbably massive success. There’s plenty of reasons why the battle royale became such a hit even in Early Access, since it offers equal opportunities for thrilling moments to both complete newbies and expert killers.
The biggest addition to the game has been the brand-new map, Miramar, and with a host of new locations, weapons, and vehicles the desert map has brought even more thrilling and hilarious moments to players and spectators alike.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been the most absurdly successful game in recent memory, and what’s even more ridiculous is that it redefined the gaming landscape all within the confines of Early Access. But today, the impossibly popular battle royale has finally hit version 1.0, and that update marks more than just a marketable version number. By now, you know what PUBG is all about — 100 players jump out of a plane and scrounge a battlefield for supplies in a winner-takes-all quest for a chicken dinner. Here’s what’s new on the official release day.
The official release date of the already insanely successful PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is just around the corner, but we don’t even have to wait until December 20th to see what new features are going to be available in version 1.0. The test servers have allowed us to take a look at the new desert map, Miramar, and all the goodies that go alongside it — plenty of which you’ve never seen on Erangel. Here are four things that make PUBG’s second map feel like a completely new experience.
Up to this point, the changes made to PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds have been relatively small, with tweaks that help high-level balance without fundamentally altering the core of the game and how it's played. But vaulting, which was available on the PUBG test servers last week and will be heading to the live version of the game soon, is far more than that. Vaulting rewrites the rules of engagement and changes everything you think you know about the existing map, while at the same time making the game more immediately accessible and intuitive than ever before.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds continues to be one of the most popular games to watch on Twitch, and there are no signs of this changing any time soon. Recently, some of the best players in the world squared off in the PUBG Gamescom Invitational, and the results were very, very entertaining.
Part of what makes PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds so popular is the fact that it offers up an endless amount of possibilities. The game gives players extraordinary freedom when it comes to choosing how to play, or their approach to any given situation. That freedom creates some truly epic moments that viewers on Twitch can’t get enough of, making it one of the most popular games to watch live — and that same freedom also allows for some hilariously embarrassing moments that are just too funny not to laugh out loud at.
The battle royale mega-hit known asPlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, currently in Early Access on Steam, is all about gathering supplies, playing strategically and knowing when (and when not) to start a potentially deadly firefight. Except when it’s not. In the handful of months since PUBG first arrived, players have shown time and time again that, sometimes, the best way to survive on an island filled with dozens of enemy players is to try an absurd strategy nobody could ever see coming. Like riding inside an opponent's car. Or bringing fists to a gunfight. Or simply refusing to fight all together.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has been burning up the Steam charts for months now, and there are no signs of the game's popularity slowing down, especially with a recently-announced Xbox One version on the way. It’s the perfect combination of intense action and strategic decisions, where every decision you make can have the deadliest of consequences for you and your 99 opponents. But the chances are you already know that—after all, everyone is playing this game. The real question is, what kind of advantage can you gain on the battlefield?
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDSsees you and dozens of other players dropped into an open world and tasked with locating weapons and resources, all while you attempt to be the last man standing in a winner-takes-all deathbrawl. Combining the best bits of survival games and military sims, BATTLEGROUNDS is a massive multiplayer deathmatch that’s all about outsmarting the competition. Starting today, the game is now available in Early Access on Steam.
Do you think you could hold your own against 63 rivals after being dropped on a remote island with nothing and plunged into a battle for survival? There's no need to respond to that question right now — just spend some time with PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS and you'll quickly get an answer. Gamepedia and the game's developer, Bluehole, are pleased to announce the Official PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Wiki.
