PUBG is the most popular video game of 2017, and just yesterday it released its version 1.0. In other words, it was successful even before releasing a final version. In Bluehole Studio’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, we’re going to have to survive on an island after parachuting. It is a giant stage, in which we fight another 100 participants, in an online shooter format.

The interesting thing about the Battle Royale game mode is that not only is it all against all, but we are also going to start on the same terms as the rest: and you have to travel the terrain to get weapons, protection, and vehicles while the map it gets smaller in a random way, forcing clashes between players.

It has problems with framerates, game mechanics and even the online platform has bugs that generate more than one frustration. But it should be noted that it is a preliminary release of an unfinished game, which is just eight days received the first update of many to come.

First or third person mode, a good level of realism in the shooting mechanics (it is not easy to shoot nor does it have system aids), a relatively short game time, a well thought out open world map with dozens of different scenarios, and the suspense that gives not knowing where the enemies are, or what area the map will be reduced to.
