For those of you who don't know, a battle royale is a fight to the finish. It's a last man standing, in other words. Surely, you've played it as a game mode at some point in your life. Battlegrounds is a game dedicated to the format. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S Battlegrounds wants to put you in with 99 other players on an island, armed to the teeth with weapons. Last man standing wins.
You may be asking yourself, who is PLAYERUNKOWN? Here's what the website says:
PLAYERUNKNOWN (Brendan Greene - Creative Director at Bluehole) is the pioneer of the Battle Royale genre. From humble beginnings creating the Battle Royale game-mode on the ARMA series, he went on to license his game-mode to Sony Online Entertainment (now Daybreak Games) for inclusion in their title H1Z1.Now working as creative director on BATTLEGROUNDS, he has finally the chance to create his own version of the game-mode which spawned a new genre in gaming.“From when I first started making the Battle Royale game-mode in ARMA 2, I have always wanted to make a good game. With Bluehole, and their philosophy of creating “well made” games, I am confident that together we can create a great game.”
