PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a multiplayer online battle royale video game developed and published by PUBG Corp., In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game's 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 gameplay is very loose and free. Everything works in third person, with secondary option of vision in first person, similar to games of shot of the same type. You can scour houses, buildings, dumps, and other points on the map for equipment, be they shields, guns, ammunition, and even vehicles, which serve for a larger, faster map movement.
What impresses in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is its realism. Although I encountered jumps that were almost liars, and did not hurt the character I controlled, I had moments that had to be treated very carefully, like in the direction of a car, for example.
What I played was able to amuse in the right measure. All because of the smallest details. The weapons are customizable and allow you to dock aim, other type of bullet, change the recoil (has recoil, which is already a great advance) or take some part to be used in other equipment. The weapons? There are many. Extremely numerous and even after hours of play, I felt it was not enough to find them all, not even close.
The graphics in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are not bad. On the contrary, they are much more detailed and realistic than most other games of the same genre, like H1Z1 and DayZ. The characters move more naturally and the setting has better textures and more neat.
However, this comes with a price: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is still a little optimized. The game runs well on more powerful computers, but the player will suffer if run on any machine below the recommended (and not minimum) requirements, according to the official description of Steam.Conclusion
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a very well crafted and worked in detail game. It is based on realism, which distances competitors, while maintaining its "Battle Royale" scheme on the big island that serves as arena for players to hunt each other. Although neat, it is a heavy and poorly optimized game, which can detract from the experience. Even so, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds works with some innovation to the genre that was already getting saturated.
