PLAYER UNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS or PUBG is an online battle royale video game that was officially released in December of 2017. PUBG is the brainchild of Brendan Greene. He is better known by his online name “PlayerUnknown”. Greene has created PUBG based on his previous creation DAYZ and inspired by a Japanese film “Battle Royale” which was released in the year 2000.  

PUBG is a multiplayer shooting game that allows players to team up in duos or a four-player squad. It also allows its player to play in a single-player mode but its intention is to make players form a squad with their friends. PUBG was first released for PC gaming on Microsoft systems and later it was released for Xbox One by Microsoft studios. PUBG Corporation has also released a mobile version in 2018 which took the gaming world by storm.

PUBG lets the players create their own avatars before they start playing the game. PUBG has an arcade mode and a survival mode. After you create your avatar it asks you to choose the type of gameplay you want. Apart from that it also has different playing arenas to pick from. These arenas are huge landscapes in which players engage in combat. Usually, players team up in squads and enter their chosen server.  Once the players enter the server of the desired arena they are taken in a flight to their destination. The flight flies across the map in a fixed path from one end to the other end. The path of the flight changes with every game.

In the arcade mode of PUBG, a total of one hundred players are pitted against each other. As the plane travels across the map the players are supposed to choose an area for landing. The players jump out of the planes with a parachute strapped on to their backs. The players land in the chosen spot without any accessories. Players have to search every building in the nearby areas to gather weapons, ammunition and other pieces of equipment that they need to take down, other players. The players need to collect these items without getting attacked by others. After gathering their weapons players are ready to face their opponents on the battlefield. 

Players travel around the map using different vehicles to encounter their enemies and collect other gadgets from a dropbox that is dropped from a plane. They have to save themselves from getting hit while killing other players. Players need to be inside a  perimeter in order to save their life. The perimeter gets smaller and smaller as the game progresses. The decreasing perimeter compels players to travel into the defined regions and forces them to engage in shootouts with other players. The player or squad that survives till the end is declared as the winner. After completion of each game, players receive some money and rewards which they can use to make in-game purchases.

Apart from gameplay what makes PUBG more interesting is its attention to small details. The game allows players to customize their avatars and armory. The players can also look up the details of each weapon and other accessories which make them more powerful. Players can learn about these attachments and practice in the training area to improve their shooting skills.

PUBG also assigns players in tiers based upon their level of skill and their achievements in arcade mode. These tiers are not permanent rankings as the players will be ripped off their ranks at the end of each season. Each season lasts for a certain period of time. Every season includes a new set of tasks that a player needs to complete to reach higher tiers and earn rewards.
