PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still working the kinks out of its new map, Sanhok, adding more and details with each new test period. The most recent test opened the map to all players, who have discovered strange golden chests lurking around the island.
Twitch now lets you filter PUBG matches by the number of players alive. If you’re impatient and want to jump right down to the final 25, you can skip right to the action. And thus we are one step closer to a establishing a real-life Hunger Games TV channel.
This afternoon’s entertainment is brought to you by UFC champion (who somehow finds time to have an entire professional video game streaming career on the side) Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Prepare to witness a full spectrum of emotions in a mere 30 seconds.
PUBG has temporarily disabled Steam item trading to prevent sales on third-party sites. “This is essentially an abuse of the system,” a rep wrote on Steam. “Once we figure out a way to prevent abuse, the restriction will be lifted.” You can still sell items on the Steam market, but person-to-person trades are no-goes.
This week’s PUBG event, Metal Rain, has been an excuse to summon armored vehicles from the sky. But it was also my first real foray into eight-player teams in the game, and I wish I could play the game this way all the time.
In a dev blog posted on their official Steam page, the PUBG developers have announced some sweeping changes to weapon damage, the attachment system, and the loot table arriving in an upcoming patch.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a level select, presumably so everyone can avoid playing on Miramar. The option will come to the test server soon, allowing players to choose exactly where they get to blow each other up.
Red zones, randomly occurring mortar hells, have been in PUBG since the beginning, but they’ve never been particularly popular with players. To many, they represent death by randomness, rather than skill. Recently, Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene came to the feature’s defense, and now players are pushing back harder…
I’ve been playing a lot of incomplete and glitchy games lately, from Radical Heights to Far Cry 2. Their messy imperfections often annoy players looking for sleek and polished experiences where everything runs smoothly but I find unfinished textures and falling out of bounds is strangely beautiful.
PlayerUnknown Battleground’s upcoming map, Savage, returned to experimental test servers yesterday with a new coat of paint. In addition to adding more buildings and new textures, the update brings incredibly loud and annoying doors to the starting area.
Today on Highlight Reel we have impressive outpost captures, nautical glitches, sad graves, and much more!
PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds’ new event, War, turns the battle royale game into a regular multiplayer shooter full of large teams and quick respawns. It’s loud, messy, and a damn good time.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ latest patch gives the meditative survival shooter a big, welcome change of pace. Battlegrounds’ blue circle, which progressively makes the playable area smaller, got tweaks to its speed and damage. Now, players who survive longer in Battlegrounds’ death blender will face more…
Lawbreakers developer Boss Key Productions released Radical Heights today as a free-to-play early access game on Steam. The “x-treme early access” battle royale game comes too late to cash in on the genre’s popularity. While it might have a few good ideas, it is one messy game.
A new malware locks infected computers’ files unless they fire up PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Unlike other ransomware, PUBG Ransomware doesn’t want infected users’ money; it just wants them to enjoy a game of Battlegrounds.
Six months after gritty survival shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ debut, the cartoony, lighthearted survival shooter Fortnite Battle Royale came along. If Battlegrounds is the pitbull of this genre, Fortnite is the golden retriever. One of its weapons is the “boogie bomb.” There’s a gingerbread man skin and a…
App stores are currently overrun with battle royale games that I will generously say are heavily inspired by PUBG and Fortnite. It’s a wild west out there, but amidst all the copy-catting, two games plucked from the masses are being taken to court by PUBG Corp., the company running PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds stations dominate the Xbox booth at PAX East. Behind that, the PlayStation booth opted to front-load Detroit: Become Human, with a couple of setups for upcoming titles like Soulcalibur VI and Yakuza 6 buried in the middle rows. Nintendo’s big draw is the Wolfenstein II Switch port demo.
After playing PUBG’s genuinely awesome new map earlier this week, I decided to embrace my battle royale fever and play some Fortnite as well. Relearning that game’s particular rhythm and playstyle has been fun but there’s one problem: I hate the in-game map.
