The Game has sold more than 10 million copies so far after its early access launch in March 2017. PlayerUnknown’s Battleground is a massively multiplayer online battle royale game where up to 100 players jump from a plane on an island and are divided into different teams.
The players explore the island for supplies and weapons and objective for them is to kill the opponent players. With the passage of time, the free area on the island becomes less, and players come closer in open spaces for quicker encounters.
The developer Bluehole never thought that the game will become an incredible success and will beat the popular gaming titles. However, they created something which is loved by PC gamers and is topping the stat charts on steam.
The game is available for 29.99 or Rs. 999 for Indian gamers to buy from Steam. The price is also not very high, and it makes for an excellent title you may consider to add to your pool of games.
