When PUBG hit the virtual shelves of Steam on March 17th,
2017, it took the internet by storm, starting an unprecedented rise to the peak
of video game hype, creating a revenue of $11 million in just three days.
industry scrambled to capitalise on this new genre, with an onslaught of Battle
Royale games hitting the market. PUBG is currently in the best state it has
ever been following the remastered Erangel update.
However, it is not the new maps
or updates that make PUBG so exciting it has the exact same appeal now as it
did upon release albeit in a more tasteful package. The crux of what makes PUBG
great, makes your heart pound as you enter the final 10, annoys your friends when
they claim you’re a bad teammate or that daring dash to that airdrop is its unpredictability.
When you combine all the above together PUBG becomes less about the gameplay
and more about the stories and the memories that were created, each win is
memorable, each location holds a different unique story and that it was makes
PUBG not just great but iconic.
