Even though Epic Games’ Fortnite has been the top dog in the Battle Royal genre for quite a while, it was PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds that triggered the hype about the Battle Royal shooters.
Worldwide, PUBG, which is available for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, has sold more than 70 million units. A commercial success that apparently leads to ambitious plans internally.
According to official information, the players should have a lot of fun with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. According to studio director Dave Curd, it is conceivable that PUBG will in the best case to still exist on the market for 20 years and will support it with new content.
“This is a game I want players to join 20 years from now, we want to keep telling stories. We want to keep providing fresh experiences. I would say anything’s possible,” Curd told to Eurogamer.
In order to keep the players happy in the long term, PUBG should continue to be regularly filled with fresh content. The eighth season is now in the starting blocks, which will include another card. In detail, we are dealing with the island of Sanhok, which is one of the oldest maps of the Battle Royal shooter and has been spiced up optically and playfully for the eighth season.
Compared to the other maps of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Sanhok is a smaller area, which according to the developer will ensure faster and more intensive battles. The changing weather conditions also provide a little variety.
