Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds story rewritten in disgraceful retcon

The world's finest stag & hen weekend banter simulator, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, has revealed its supposed 'true' story with an outrageous retcon in a new trailer. No, we're supposed to believe, the game isn't about lads and lasses going too hard and getting carried away with pranks. Now it's some wank about a kid surviving a massacre then hosting megamurders so other people can discover who…

Games like Fortnite – 8 best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale is, so far, the pinnacle of the decade-old battle royale game genre. It's no understatement to say that we haven't seen a game enter the mainstream in this way since Minecraft - but it's not the only battle royale out there, and the genre has never before seen such quantity nor such quality. We'll go over a handful of our favourite battle…

The world's deadliest stag and hen weekend holiday company are introducing the final three features for a truly unforgettable night of deadly banter: a foolish ride in a novelty vehicle, daft pyrotechnics, and climbing onto the roof of a restaurant. The next Playerunknown's Battlegrounds update will add an amphibious boatcar, make the vehicle-refuelling petrol cans explode when shot, and let us grab onto ledges in…

It’s now a crime to play Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds in Nepal

According to reports from multiple Nepalese news sites, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has been banned in Nepal. Permission was granted by Kathmandu District Court on Wednesday, the very same day that the Metropolitan Crime Division filed a Public Interest Litigation asking for a ban, on the grounds that the game was "having a negative effect on the behaviour and study of children and youths". Justice, as they…

Has Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds been improved by its updates?

Who says games aren’t educational? When I woke up this morning, I didn’t know the Korean word for “Red Zone.” That’s “Red Zone” as in, the randomly selected section of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds’ map that becomes an artillery test site for a time every few minutes, and “Red Zone” as in “the roving death circle that you really don’t want to be stuck inside.” Now, thanks…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds designer Brendan Greene moves to new R&D team

Brendan "Plunk" Greene, the lead designer of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, is leaving the development team to head a new 'PUBG Special Projects' division at PUBG Corp. He'll still have a consulting role on the battle royale FPS, presumably suggesting people add more buckles to jackets, but his focus will very much be on the new team and their research and development into new multiplayer experiences. How…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds to refurbish older maps

Despite growing competition, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is still going strong, but its original, Arma-inspired Russian map, Erangel, is starting to feel a little long in the tooth. Developers PUBG Corp have announced that they're going through the game's older bits and polishing them up a bit. Their remastering of Erangel is well underway, with cartographically inclined data-miners on Reddit comparing the old and present test-server maps, and…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds fires up flare guns

After sporadic experiments in event modes and tests, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has added flare guns that players can use to call in an airdrop of a double-sized care package or an armoured car. That's powerful, sure, but also sends up a literal flare to indicate where you are and where some big loot will soon be. I found they added an interesting tactical element during the…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adds Vikendi night variant

The moonlit version of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds map Vikendi has launched in the main version of the game, after a week on the test server. Green rays of aurora borealis dance across the sky, the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, and the mid-sized snowy map doesn't play too differently but it does look jolly nice. This update also reworks item spawn rates…

PUBG Report lets you see all the streamers you’ve murdered

Kill-cams in shooters are fun, but PUBG Report - a web-app that tracks when and where streamers get shot in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds - is just for farming schadenfreude. Using Plunkbat's extensive database of who killed what and where, all you need to do is plug an in-game name into the page here. If they've killed or been killed by anyone that was streaming within the past…

PUBG devs investigating invisible player bug

So many games of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds end with me getting shot out of nowhere by someone I never saw. It's the authentic Plunkbat experience - though a bug that turns players invisible might be taking things a step too far. That bug definitely exists, and is definitely being investigated by developers PUBG Corp. The only question is whether it's a recent phenomenon.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds tests free, low-spec version

If you’ve always wanted to drop into Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, but lacked the PC power, you might soon be in luck. The developers are currently running a beta test for PUBG Lite; a version of the game designed to run with much lower hardware requirements. They’ve also lowered the monetary requirement about as far as it'll go, making this version of the game free-to-play.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding night to Vikendi

A nighttime version of the snowy map Vikendi is coming Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, and today is live on the test server so we can have a peek. The moonlight variant, which is picked at random, is darker but far from pitch black, illuminated by a full moon and the rippling green aurora borealis. What a beautiful night to murder 99 people. The update will also bring…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds guide: tips and tricks to win in PUBG

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds still dominates Steam to this day. With the latest map Vikendi, it still draws in the crowds, much to John's chagrin. It now has four maps, and an expanded weapon set that's got a lot of nuance to it. While its overall popularity may be waning a little in light of some very stiff competition, it isn't a surprise that the game itself…

Feature: Where to not get murdered

PUBG Erangel: where to loot, how to win

For some, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds's Erangel is still the best map in the game. Maybe it's because it's the one they're most used to, or perhaps Miramar is too big, Sanhok is too small, and Vikendi is too snowy. If you're diving into PUBG for the first time, then this is probably the best map to start out in. Erangel's Russian inspired island is full of…
