Overview

PUBG: Battlegrounds, previously known as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is a battle royale game developed by PUBG Studios and published by Krafton. The game was inspired by the Japanese film Battle Royale (2000), and is based on previous mods created by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene for other games. It is available on multiple platforms including Windows, Android, iOS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Stadia, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5.

Gameplay 7

PUBG's gameplay is relatively straightforward. Up to 100 players parachute onto an island where they scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill other players while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game's map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into an ever tightening space to force encounters. However, some players on Reddit have expressed concerns about the game's balance, particularly with regards to weapons and attachments. They suggest that while ARs are fairly balanced, SMGs need some adjustments. Despite these concerns, many players still find the gameplay intriguing and nerve-wracking, offering a unique experience compared to other multiplayer shooters.

Graphics 8

The graphics of PUBG have been a topic of discussion among players. Some players on Reddit have shared their settings guide to help others optimize their graphics and FPS. They suggest that high and ultra settings for anti-aliasing do a good job in PUBG. However, some players have reported issues with brightness.

Storyline 6

While PUBG is not known for its storyline, it does have a background story. According to official PUBG trailers and cinematics, the island Erangle was subject to a bombing run and only one kid survived. This kid grew up the lone survivor on Erangle only to grow up and create what is known as the "Battlegrounds" in the game that is PlayerUnknown's Battleground.

Multiplayer - N/A

PUBG's multiplayer aspect is one of its strongest points. The game offers a unique battle royale experience that many players find unmatched by other games. However, some players have reported issues with finding games without too many bots.
