What is PUBG?

What is PUBG? PUBG is short for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is developed by PUBG Corporation and is a battle royale online multiplayer game.

The game can feature up to one hundred players who all begin by parachuting onto an Island, from there they then have to find weapons and equipment to defeat the other players. As the game time goes on, the area of the island which is playable decreases, which means players have a smaller area to move around which in turn means more likely to come across other players.

What is a Battle Royale game? These are online multiplayer games which contain three main elements, survival is the number one factor, avoid your opponents taking you out whilst taking them out of the game, exploration, whether the game is based on an island or in a city, you need to explore the game map which will bring in the survival factor and also the third element, scavenging, as you more often than not start with nothing so you need to find your weapons etc so the three elements all intertwine to make this a Battle Royale.
