When it comes to battle royale games, they don't come much bigger than PlayerUnknown's Battleground, AKA PUBG. With rumors going around that the developers might be starting work on PUBG 2, it's likely that the high-octane online multiplayer will be the talk of the town for a good while. Probably more so now that the latest update is available.
Version 11.2 of PUBG was announced recently by publisher PUBG Corporation and is available to download now on PC. According to a recent repot, the update will bring a slew of new features and Season 11's next Content Drop: Survivor Pass: Pajama Party, which comes with more than 30 awards available to unlock throughout 50 levels. There's also some gameplay and balance adjustments, such as fixing aim stability in vehicles. On top of that, there are some updates to the Erangel map based off player feedback. More information about the 11.2 update can be seen in the attached video below.
PUBG is the kind of game that sees a lot of updates over a short period of time. It's only been three weeks since the game was updated to version 11.1, which saw the return of the Paramo map, and the introduction of the Emergency Pickup item. PUBG Season 11 officially started at the end of March this year.
With the game being updated and rumors of a sequel under way, you'd think PUBG Corporation would have enough on their plate. However, another recent report states that the studio may be working on an open-world sci-fi game. But with the newest update available for PUBG on PC, it's unlikely that things will slow down for the record-breaking battle royale game.
Over the past few years, battle royales have become the primary game mode when it comes to online competitive gaming. The popularity of games like Fortnite, Warzone, Apex Legends, and PUBG shows that fans can't seem to get enough of this concept. Even industry titan Call of Duty moved to cash in on the trend with Warzone.
While the success of the game mode can be measured by how many players are consistently active or by how much yearly revenue each title makes, the best way to represent how important the genre really is would be to gauge the impact it has had on the gaming industry as a whole.
At the beginning of the Xbox One and PS4 generation, loot boxes became a popular way from publishers to entice fans to spend extra money on a game. Many gamers, however, saw this as a way for developers and studios to incorporate gambling into videogames. Over the past few years, loot boxes have declined in popularity.
This is because of the season pass model Fortnite created. Instead of buying a chance at winning an item you want, like how a slot machine works, the season pass model gives players the option to unlock cosmetics through experience points. While joining the season costs money, season passes allow players to see what they could earn first, circumventing the "gambling" aspect.
