"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" ("PUBG") is the most popular game
of 2017. It's sold over 24 million copies with three million
concurrent online players at a time on the Steam gaming platform
– and the full game is not even technically out yet. "PUBG" has
been in "early access" ever since it was made available to play
in March this year.
"Early access" games are usually unfinished, and it's a
stage in a game's development when players can get a taste for
the game with the understanding that they can run into bugs and
unfinished features. Except the early access version of "PUBG"
was clearly good enough.
The goal of the game is to survive and become the last person
standing among 100 live online players – including yourself –
after you've parachuted onto an island. You can scavenge weapons,
armor, health kits, and boosters along the way to help you obtain
your "chicken dinner," the ultimate prize for surviving when 99
others could not.
Announced during the annual Game Awards on Thursday evening,
a new trailer from PUBG Corp. said "PUBG" will come out of early
release and become a fully released game on PC on December 20.
PUBG Corp. said in a press release
" We believe that we've completed the core Battle Royale
structure for PUBG. "
Xbox One players will also get to play a preview of the game on
The game will come with a new desert map called Miramar to
accompany the original map called Erangel.
Check out the trailer:
Three new weapons that will be exclusive to Miramar will also be
introduced, including a beefy revolver called the R45, a
western-style rifle called the Win94, and a sawed-off
Three new vehicles will also be available on both maps, including
to six-seater van, to four-seater pickup truck, and the "Aquarail,"
a two-seater jetski seemingly made of wood.
A variety of optimizations and gameplay improvements will also be
featured, like the ability to band up or take boosts while in
a vehicle, improved sound effects and animations, as well as
general performance improvements to reduce lag.
