PUBG is fun, entertaining, addictive, requires skills, and it features amazing gameplay, which lets you enjoy hours of fun with friends. In this article, we will do a deep dive on PUBG, a little history about the game, explain the gameplay, and analyze what is the PUBG season.
What is PUBG?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, better known as PUBG, is one of the most popular battle royale survival games. The idea for PUBG came from the creation of several mods developed by PlayerUnknown, an Irish game developer that became famous due to his amazing mods.
Brendan Greene a.k.a. PlayerUnknown, was hired as the main creative director of PUBG Corporation and was given creative freedom to make one of the best games available, which is how PUBG came to be. The game was first released in 2017 on Steam for Windows players, but it was later on released for consoles like Xbox, Xbox One, PS4, and even iOS and Android devices.
Understanding PUBG’s gameplay is quite simple. In this game, 100 players are dropped on a deserted island or a wide variety of maps, and they have to fight to survive. The last player or team alive in the game wins the match.
In PUBG, you can enter each match as a solo player, with a companion, or a team of up to 4 people. When the match starts, a plane drops each player on parachutes into the map, and they have to look for resources and make do with what they have to survive.
The only items players start with, are customized clothing, which do not give a bonus, therefore giving every player a fair chance to win. When the players land on the map, they have to run for their lives and scavenge for vehicles, weapons, armors, and any other type of tools that will help them become the last one alive.
Some high-risk zones within the map have better equipment, but the gear is also harder to acquire, especially since every other player is going to be going to these zones to their weapons. You can acquire gear by picking it up from loot crates all around or looting dead players. You can loot any dead player, even if you didn’t kill him or her.
In PUBG, other players are not the only threat. The map on the game is constantly shrinking, if you are outside the map zone, you will take damage and eventually die, unless you get within the safe zone.
What are PUBG seasons?
Every few months, a new season of PUBG starts. With each new season, comes new updates, weapons, gear, and different tools, while some old ones are retired. The season makes the game more fun and entertaining since it keeps features changing and includes new features.
Some of the seasons adapt to Christmas Season, Halloween Season, and more. For Halloween 2021, PUBG featured its Trick or Chicken season, including many new clothing items, weapons, and a wide variety of tools that made the game much more addictive.
