    Playerunknown's BATTLEGROUNDS

    PC only at the moment but I got this based on the immense amount of hype being generated by the Youtube community - much in the same way as DayZ initially.

    For those who don't know, this is a Battle Royale game which is in early access. Must admit this has a lot of promise *if* they sort out some issues and continue to develop it. The mechanics are there. It is, like many BR games, frustrating as hell and patience and tactics are so important.

    The game starts with about 100 players flown over a smallish (at the moment) single island. You can chose to jump when it suits but there are risks and rewards with a military base chock full of weapons being a popular choice. I am much more of a lurker so normally jump to a quiet spot and scavenge weapons from quieter areas. The shooting range at the top of the map or the docks are great. Then I normally make my way to as centre of the play zone and hide, waiting for the playzone to constrict - never engaging unless I know I am going to win. Best finish so far is 4th but this game is extremely unforgiving as you expect and it really build the tension. Once you die that's it but the good thing is, joining a new game is easy and quick.

    You can play in modes with teams of 2 or 4 as well but my mates haven't got this yet.

    Some obvious stuff needs to be done still:

    • Better performance optimisation (I run a i7 7700k with a GTX1080 and it gives about 75fps);
    • Clipping issues and jumping needs improving;
    • More maps;
    • I would like to see animation improved. Just feels a bit like Dayz; and
    • I would like a first person only mode as the third person allows you to see over walls or behind trees which is not realistic.

    Aside from these - this is shaping up to be an excellent game.

    I've watched some streams on this recently. To be brutally honest I cant see any real reason to play this over H1Z1. Yeah it has some more interesting gameplay options (I.e. Guns and vehicles, oh and weather effect) otherwise its practically a carbon copy.

    If it gets pushed further and quicker than H1Z1 then I might switch to it at some point buy as it currently stands I cant see any reason for this to be THE battle royale game to play in its current form.
