PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds continues to sell in hugely impressive figures on Steam Early Access. The game has now topped over 5 million copies since releasing back in March.
It was only a month ago that PlayerUnknown Battleground has racked up 4 million, and the game’s million-per-month trend could see it top 10 million before years end if it continues.
For those not familiar with what is slowly becoming a phenomenon in multiplayer PC gaming, Battlegrounds is an island survival game is similar in premise to the iconic Japanese movie Battle Royale, and more recently, The Hunger Games. After parachuting onto a small island, players forage for weapons, resources, and vehicles in a last-man-standing fight to the death. The game forces players to stay mobile by shrinking the map throughout each round. The final moments of each game typically end in manic showdowns.
Battlegrounds was designed by “PLAYERUNKNOWN” aka Brendan Green, an ARMA and H1Z1 a player and member of the modding community who built similar modes for those games. His fledgeling project is now on course to become one of the most popular multiplayer games in recent years, especially when it releases on console next year.
