Player unknown Battlegrounds is an online, multiplayer Battle Royale game on the PC where you and up to 98 other players— and probably at least one Twitch streamer — skydives onto an island where you look for weapons and equipment that is then used to kill everyone else. That’s a short explanation of what the game is, but if you’ve been curious about why it’s so popular or confused by some aspects of this phenomena, this is a great place to start. Player unknown Battlegrounds is a strange and idiosyncratic game, but it’s not an overnight success and there’s a reason it blew up in the way it has. The game was launched in March 2017 and till now it has sold over 20 Million copies and has been camped out in the top 10 best sellers of the steam since the start. It’s a big hit around youtube and Twitch.TV streamers because of its popularity and ability to reliably serve up the interesting moments in stream. The game is only on the PC for the moment, and only available through Steam or on the game’s official page. The non-Steam link on the page will give you a download code that has to be activated on Steam, however, so it’s essentially a Steam exclusive. There has not been any kind of physical release, and likely won’t be until the game is out of early access. There will be a release on the Xbox One in 2017, using the console’s Game Preview (early access) program. PlayStation fans are out of luck for the time being, but the game’s developer said that they continue to look at other platforms without providing any solid details. What this likely means is that Microsoft has paid for timed exclusivity on consoles, but a PlayStation 4 version will eventually be released. There’s just nothing official yet.
