Someone has to tell them that it’s not too hard to write the title without the Caps Lock.
The 24-hour peak for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS almost reached 60,000 players, with an all-time peak being 67,846 gamers. And the game is reaching 500,000 owners. To compare it to a more known title, DayZ reached all-time peak of 45,398 users. You understand the success.
If you are into Early Access games, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS seems like a good bet. The early version is already receiving some updates. As you can read on the official blog, the game is receiving daily batches “to improve server performance.” Weekly updates are meant “to push bug fixes & client performance and stability fixes,” while content updates will be delivered according to a monthly schedule.
But what is PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS? It’s a survival shooter, where the last-man-standing is the winner. The title is created with Unreal Engine 4 and you have eight square kilometers of island to explore. You start with nothing and your survival depends on the loot you’ll collect – that includes the stuff found on bodies of other players’ characters.
The game will be developed with the help of the users’ feedback and the upcoming updates will include some changes in the matter of positional sound (after a Q&A session), leaderboards etc.
