The title is extremely popular on Steam, and today it managed to cross over 2 million concurrent players. The game is breaking records left and right, and right now it seems like the sky's the limit. However, it's not just PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds though, even titles like Fortnite are gaining a following after they added a Battle Royale mode a few weeks ago. It's hard to deny the popularity of the genre.
According to a statement put out by Epic Games, Fortnite Battle Royale has surpassed 10 million players since launching on September 26 as a free-to-play companion to Fortnite. Just like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Fortnite Battle Royale drops 100 players onto a giant map where their combat and building skills are put to the test, and the last commander standing wins.
Hopefully, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will experience similar success when it launches on Xbox One through the Xbox Game Preview program later this year. What makes the game stand out among a myriad of shooters is the title's open nature. It's accessible because you can succeed even though your approach may be drastically different than your competitor's. Be sure to check out the game if you love multiplayer titles and want to challenge yourself in a new setting.
