The name PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is engraved in every gamer’s mind at this time. Record news almost every day and the audience reached by the game is followed by everyone with amaze. However, even though the name PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds have risen quickly and gained popularity, it’s possible to say that there is a long story behind it. Why do you think this production that evolved from DayZ which was first released as an Arma mode? Brendan Greene (aka PlayerUnknown), unlike developers who spent years in the video game industry, might be considered a new game developer, have presented Battle Royale game type to the gaming world and perhaps even he couldn’t foresee the present success of the project.
We Reviewed the Details of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds
It was told that PlayerUnknown’s BattleGround which entered the early access process in March 2017 would never make it to the end of early access and get lost in the cemetery of Steam. Content creators (YouTube and Twitch) also had an influence on the growth of the game to a level where the game reached its greatest competitive H1Z1 at that time in just a month. However, the biggest effect on the game’s popularity might be the constant care of BlueHole studios with the game, unlike other game developer teams. Developers who updated the game almost every week until December should be given credit. While at the beginning PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was sick with optimization issues, it evolved into the full version with developments done by time.
Developer team added a new map, new vehicles and new animations to the game with 1.0 update and made the game completely ready. With more than 30 million players and 3 million active players, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the leading Battle Royale game at the moment, leaving its competitive with no choice other than jealousy. While having a competition with Fortnite, it looks like PUBG won’t leave its leadership position for a long while. Also available on Xbox One, the game is dominant in the market. We can surely accept that the game offers indispensable excitement.
The main target in this game where the players dive to a map from a regular cargo aircraft is to eventually leave 99 players behind and become the only survivor. You start the game in dual or quartet teams and what you need to do in the beginning is to gather useful equipment asap. Weapon, weapon attachments, armor, energy drink, painkillers, ammunition, backpack and other things you find will help you eliminate your enemies in the game. In PUBG, you can either move silently and try to survive or spray bullets on your enemies like Rambo. You need to stay in the safe zone which narrows down in time. Otherwise, you have the chance to die without firing a bullet. Therefore it’s for your own benefit if you don’t play too greedy.
In addition, you need to know that random equipment drops from an airplane on random locations during the game which may contain special ammunition. It’s impossible to find things that are found in air drops anywhere else in the game. So, needless to say, that air drops take every players’ attention as they carry great value. If you try to get the loot from the air drop, you’ll easily become an open target and expect every other player to kill you. Also, you need to pay attention to random shelling. An area of the game depending on player density is marked red and if you stay in that area you get bombs raining over your head. You can, of course, take advantage of surrounding buildings.
The game contains vehicles that can be used for commuting. As the vehicle range involves motorbikes and 4-wheels, there are also hard-terrain special vehicles in PlayerUnknown’s Battleground. Personally, I don’t like driving mechanism in the game. While the vehicles have a monotonous driving structure, collision physics is also disturbing. In fact, you may even die because of the riding mechanism of motorbikes.
If we talk about the use of weapons and details on this, we can consider PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds successful at this. Furthermore, I’d like to state that weapon sounds in the game are amazing! Indeed, developers transferred real weapon sounds to the game. But I can’t say the same thing about shooting sensation. For instance, you can easily feel that every automatic rifle in the game gives the same shooting sensation. On the other hand, as the game is deficient in physics and you will have a hard time targeting enemies. The targeted player might rapidly move around and therefore game mechanics on this may be accepted as an arcade. Perhaps, developers intended for it to be like that. That, we can’t know for sure but let’s say that it’s a negative point for the game.
The game contains two maps, Erangel and newly added desert map Miramar. You get a different type of gameplay experience in those maps that are completely different from each other in design. To set an example, while Miramar has a terrain that is more like steppes, you need to battle in plain lands whereas Erangel is partly covered with forests and it’s possible to find hiding spots. Developers also stated that snow-covered, smaller map will be added to the game. On top of all that, if the rumors of wilderness, day and night cycle and zombies become true, we are sure that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will turn into a much better game.
To set the closure, we have to accept that PlayerUnknown’s Battleground offers a high-quality Battle Royale experience. However, if you are to play the game by yourself, replayability is not the best feature of the game. Even though you will enjoy the game when you play as a quartet, so can you enjoy a Poker game. That’s why I don’t think it provides a positive point to the game.
