PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is online shooting game which is already breaking some of the stereotypes set by the other online shooting games. The engaging gameplay combined with newer and newer adventures in each and every stage is keeping the fans invoked into the game. The main advantage of the game is the Battle Royale style match which still incorporates the original gameplay of the single-player mode. This pushes the game above the threshold set by its competitors. We would today go into the different aspects of the game to help you better understand why it is not just another online shooter game and is actually much better as compared to the peers.
These days, most of the players 1st look at the graphics of the game and the kind of detailing which is used, before even buying the game. In this regard, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds stands much better as compared to the other compatible games. The graphics are very detailed and articulated as long as you’re not using the low graphics setting. As long as you are having a decent graphics card in your machine like GeForce GTX graphics card, you would be able to get immaculate graphics on the screen. The game supports Nvidia’s HBAO+ Ambient Occlusion tech which ensures that the objects, as well as the characters, are much more realistic as compared to digital 2-D objects. One of the most detailing signs that highlights that the graphics are actually perfect is the way in which they have handled the objects floating in the air as well as the foliage, details the immaculate graphical representation on the screen.
One thing which you would notice however in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is that the buildings as well as the surroundings do not have much versatility but rather look all the same. This actually comes as no surprise considering the small development team of the game.
Most of the games always try to look into the configuration which they would need in order to run the game. In this regard, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds needs pretty high configuration as you would have to opt for any one of the 2 graphics card options mentioned below
NVidia GeForce GTX 1060
AMD Radeon RX 480
Both of these graphics cards would help you run the game in 1080p. However, if you’re having a configuration which is lesser than this, you would have to tone down the graphics.
The gameplay is pretty simple. Whenever you connect to the server, you would be 1st taken to the Spawn Island. You have to wait here, till the server is able to fill up to 100 players. After that, within 60 seconds, the match would start. The screen will display a time of 60 seconds which would indicate the time left to start the match. The game provides you with the option to communicate with the other players in the same game.
items or weapons, you would have to detect the airdrops and loot them. The airdrops happen at random places throughout the map multiple times during the day.
There are 3 game modes which are:
• Solo: in this mode, you would be competing against 99 other players and trying to gain victory over them which is also code named as the chicken dinner in the game. You have to kill each and every single opponent in order to win the game.
• Duo: in this game mode, you would be pairing up with another one of your friend who owns the game and thereafter would be playing against other players. At the most, there would be 50 other payers. Whenever you are killed or your health reduces below a certain threshold in this game mode, your partner would be able to revive you for a limited period of time. In order to completely eliminate you from the game, the enemy would have to consistently shoot you in order to deplete the entire health.
• Squad: in this game mode, you would be able to create a squad of 4 people. You would be playing against 26 to 32 others competitors. The rules of the game are similar to the duo mode. You can decide the one which suits you the best.
The basic idea of the game developers is to keep the players moving. Due to this very reason, once you land on the island, there would be a primary circle which is the white circle on the map. This is the same zone to which you have to head over to. After the appearance of this primary circle, another circle would appear which is the blue circle. If you’re in the blue circle, you would notice consistent damage to your health over a period of time. The blue circle starts getting bigger until it touches the white circle. Then the white circle begins to reduce in size. Therefore, if you want to stay in the game for a longer period of time it is important to head over to the safe zone as soon as possible.
only lasts for around 20 seconds in order to make the players move.
The strategy used in order to battle with other players depends entirely on you. You can engage with as many players as possible or you can save the firepower until you get in the primary circle. The strategy is entirely up to you.
In case, you are looking to land in the busy area on the island, it is a better idea to jump off the plane quite quickly so that you are able to get ahead of your opponents. Also, as soon as you get your weapon it is a better idea to start shooting right away so that you are able to gain dominance over the other players landing in the same area.
The basic premise of the game is to eliminate the other players in order to win the chicken dinner. Chicken dinner is the codename for the victory. Once the player gets eliminated, he or she again moves to the server filing area where they have to wait for 100 players to be present before being dropped off to the island again
Even though there are not a lot of cheat codes or patches which you can use but surely, the self-aiming patches pretty popular. Many of the players in the game hit directly aiming for the headshot and taking out other players quite easily. This indicates a cheat is indeed available.
Even though, the developers are working to fix these glitches and cheats which are being used by the various players but still, they have not been hugely successful in doing so. That is why you have to stay away from the players using the cheat codes to keep the game fair.
So, if you like the massively multiplayer online games, this unique twist in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds would surely attract you to play the game. Moreover, as more and more players play the game, you can be sure that the waiting time for the server to fill up with 100 players would be on the lesser side as well. This would help you in playing the game quite quickly without any kind of problems at all. Moreover, whenever you are playing the game you can be sure that each and every time, there would be unpredictability in the game which just adds to the thrill of the game.
All in all, due to the unique concept, the game is much better as compared to some of the massive multiplayer online games. All you need to do is to just buy it and you would be able to easily play it through your computer. Currently, the cost is around $30. The game is well worth it especially if you have played on the scoreboard along with your family and friends. This would help you in being more secure as you would be playing in the squad. This is one of the main reasons why this game is even more successful. In the last few weeks, there has been a significant amount of rise in the popularity of the game and now more and more players are looking to play the game.
The only downside is that due to a large number of players on the server, it can lag a bit. Also, it is not sharp when it comes to reflecting your movements on the server. However, the game developers are already working on fixing these glitches.
Currently, it is one of the best massive multiplayer online games which you can get your hands on
