Player Un­known’s Bat­tle­grounds

XBox: The Official Magazine - - OXM INVESTIGATES -

Fol­low any gam­ing YouTu­bers? Then you’ve prob­a­bly seen this one crop up a lot lately thanks to the amaz­ing stunts peo­ple are pulling off in this in­sane bat­tle royale. It’s a sim­ple enough con­cept – you para­chute onto an is­land with noth­ing but the clothes on your back and in order to sur­vive you’ll have to hunt down weapons and ar­mour to use to take peo­ple down un­til you’re the last per­son stand­ing. The fun comes in all of the aban­doned places you can hide and the items you can find – from sim­ple knives to ma­chine guns, you never quite know what you’ll find and what you’ll have to make do with. There’s a joy in be­ing stuck with a ma­chete and find­ing some­one who hasn’t spot­ted you yet and sneak­ing up on them to lib­er­ate them of their sniper ri­fle and ghille suit. You can even find ve­hi­cles to help you get around the map that much faster and run peo­ple down with it. Of course, if you’re not care­ful some­one might just out­smart you and steal it from right un­der­neath you. It’s cur­rently in early ac­cess on Steam, but will also be mak­ing its con­sole de­but on Xbox One later this year –with two new maps in tow – so you can take on the world.
