Out of nowhere, developer Epic released a patch for their open-world crafting game Fortnite. Instead of adding new weapons or abilities, this one offered a battle royale mode – similar to that seen in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

 

Other games have been inspired by PUBG’s popularity too; Grand Theft Auto Online added a smaller-scale version, with teams fighting and scavenging to survive. This week, we’re keeping it simple:

 

Have you played PUBG yet?

 

Gotten any chicken dinners? Or are you waiting for a console release? Or do you just want the game to finally come out of early access?

I've not played it. Closest thing I've experienced was the Survival dlc for The Division which I absolutely loved, but after successfully extracting felt zero compulsion to play again.

Don't have a gaming PC so haven't had a chance to try it out. Watched a few streams of it and it seems like it would be a lot of fun.

 

I heard an analogy recently that it's similar to playing a poker tournament where you try to survive/outlast and you always feel like you have a chance to win. Best way to describe it that I've heard.

PUBG madness is crazy. The game is awesome and great fun to play in a team. Got into the top 600 in Squads at one point before a leader board restart. Shout out to the NZGamer Discord crew for some sick dinners.

 

I also heard the madness causes people to drop n-bombs.

Pretty solid game, sick of new games releasing complete games but slap a "beta" on it for about 4 years when it pretty much is a full game. Its just an excuse for them to cut corners and just patch the crap out of it for years. But eh.. Good game regardless

Problem I had with it is it feels like just an add on of a game. $20 dlc kinda thing. There really isn't much ch to it.
I'd hardly call it pretty much a full game.

Wasn't that why it was $40 instead of $90? In a sense it is an add on to Arma3, or 2 i can't remember.

Will be cool once they release the next two maps. Still places i havent been to on this map and i have played a fair amount. I love the fact that no two games feel the same for me, its heaps of fun with a squad too, intense in solo!
