Every few months there is a new craze, one minute it’s Fidget Spinner and the next is PUBG. And if you’re not up on the latest one, you’re playing catch-up. The new fad is PlayerUnknown Battleground. The online world has exploded into a battle royale insanity. PUBG uses the classic “deathmatch” concept as its base pitting 100 players against each other and it all comes to the last man standing. Bluehole has an exemplary track record when it comes to keeping its player base happy with regular updates. With 20 million daily active users on mobile, it has broken the world record of reaching 1,342,857 of total concurrent players. If you ever wanted to know what it would feel like to be in a Hunger Games situation, well this game is going to bring you as close as it could be. Scavenging for weapons and protective armor you can use throughout the game for your survival, watching your back, looking for a place to hide; this game is an addictive madness.
Surrounding the players is an encroaching blue energy field, which decreases as time progress forcing player closer together but the climax has a certain twist to it – condensing last few players into a small space. When the final player gets the last kill, they’re greeted with a congratulatory message, “Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner.” The origin of the line came from alley craps back in the Depression. They used to play craps in alleys and didn’t always use of money, but if they did then the winning meant affording chicken for dinner that night.
PUBG caught up so fast because of constant curiosity of ‘What will happen next?’ making it exciting and replayable. Everything is not laid out for you in PUBG. Some secret areas are off the beaten path that players can explore in the midst of this crazy battle. One of the coolest things about this game is that every once in a while players might encounter developers. They have to get their game on too, right? There are videos of developers running through Spawn Island to participate in the game. At the end of it, always remember that even though the thrill of it keeps you hooked, PUBG is a survival game.
