PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUND Esports Game Review

PUBG is an amazing action game in which up to one hundred players fight in a brutal battle royale

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, is a massively multiplayer online survival game, usually played on Microsoft’s Windows. Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene is the developer from whose imagination the game largely sprung. The game expanded from being based on mods developed by Greene for other games, into a standalone game under Greene’s direction, and has proved immensely popular with players. Developed and published by a company called Bluehole, the game was initially released in March 2017.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Overview

Check out our brief PUBG review

The game is pretty simple when it comes to its overall concept. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gameplay involves up to 100 players being parachuted onto an island.

Here, they have to scavenge weapons and other equipment in order to provide them with the means to ensure their own survival, and to kill the other opponents. The winner of the game is the last player left alive on the island.

There is a finite amount of safe space on the island, which is reduced as the game progresses. This means that surviving players are compelled into increasingly small areas, where they face the increasing risk of conflict with other players. PUBG also includes an option for team play.

Gameplay

PUBG Offers Excitement and Entertainment

Up to 100 players can feature in a game of PUBG. Players can opt for individual play, which usually takes place on free-for-all servers, or to play as part of a team. Strategy and tactics obviously change depending on which option is taken.

Each game of PLAYERUKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS begins with the players parachuting onto an island, which is eight kilometres by eight kilometres square. The players must then search for weapons, armour and other equipment which will help in the inevitable battle between them and the other players.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gameplay involves players being able to find better items in more dangerous areas of the island, although Players who have been killed can be looted for their weapons and equipment if you’re the kind of gamer who prefers mowing through enemies to carefully exploring.

Extras & Items

Shrinking Safe Space Increases Pressure on Players

The range of items and equipment available to players in PUBG is boosted at intervals by plane drops of items, which happen randomly.

Every few minutes, the safe area shrinks, with players outside of it sustaining damage until they are killed or reach the safe area. Players see the boundary as a shimmering blue wall. Some areas of the map are highlighted red and bombed during PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gameplay, posing an additional danger to players. You’re able to opt for a first person or third person perspective in the game, both of which have advantages and disadvantages.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gameplay and structure makes it more light-hearted than many other survival games, with players more inclined to experiment with weapons, rather than hoard them, which can create humorous situations. Overall, it is a unique, Hunger Games-esque, multiplayer survival game which has attracted a massive following already during its short life, and looks set to become a truly iconic game.
