Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds
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.
