PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole. The game is based on previous mods that were created by Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene for other games, inspired by the 2000 Japanese film Battle Royale, and expanded into a standalone game under Greene’s creative direction.
In the game, up to one hundred players drop into a map and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.
The game was released for Microsoft Windows via Steam’s early access beta program in March 2017, with a full release in December 2017. That same year, the game was released by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox One via its Xbox Game Preview program, and officially released in September 2018. A free-to-play mobile version for Android and iOS was released in 2018, in addition to a port for the PlayStation 4. PUBG Corporation has run several small tournaments and introduced in-game tools to help with broadcasting the game to spectators.
