PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds 

PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds aka PUBG is a Battle Royale (BR), meaning the game is set on a massive battlefield where 100 players fight either alone, or in teams, to be the last one remaining. The BR genre exploded in popularity right around the release of PUBG in 2016 and PUBG dominated the scene together with Fortnite.

 

What is PUBG?

PUBG is a Battle Royal game, or a survival game, where 100 players are thrown into combat and the winner is the last one standing. The game is played either solo or in teams, with the team based side of the game being more popular. The games themselves are fast and actionpacked, with loads of exciting and nail biting moments. All players start each game with only the basics, just to start scavenging for weapons and different types of utility to help them overcome their enemies. What makes PUBG unique compared to other similar games is the first person view it offers and as such becomes more realistic than some other BR games. The ability to use several different types of vehicles also stands out. Different strategies can be used to overcome the other 99 players, which range from aggressive ones where enemies are taken out, to pure defensive ones where you wait your opposition out. There is however a limiting factor here - the storm, which hurts players in it, but there is a barrier that protects players from it during the game. The protective barrier does shrink in size the longer the game progresses.. Eventually the space will be really, really small and if you step outside you will quickly be eliminated. That’s the basic idea of PUBG and if you wish to learn more about the game as a whole we recommend you head over to our guides section.

What is a Battle Royale? 

A Battle Royale game is any game where the last person or team standing wins the game. Seemingly based off of the Japanese novel by Koushun Takami, Battle Royale, as well as the more popular Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins where the main focus of the plot revolves around a group of children who are thrown into a battleground and forced to kill each other with weapons and tools that are scattered around the area, where the remaining (usually one) child is allowed to return to their home. Yes this may seem a little grotesque and unfortunately, it is. When you consider it is a video game however, then it requires a lot of skill and perfect reaction time to consistently be the one on top. Battle Royale brings a whole new style of gameplay for player and viewers, since every game is different and there is a lot happening around the huge map all the time. 

Can you play PUBG cross-platform?

PUBG is available on PC, Mobile, Xbox One and PS4. However, only Xbox One and PS4 can be played cross-platform, while the others are restricted.
