Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has become somewhat of a phenomenon that has taken the gaming world by storm. This time the game has broken a new record on Steam.
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has set the record for the most concurrent users on Steam, even beating the giant DOTA2. The game reached 1,348,374 users on September 16, beating DOTA’s previous record set in March 2016 of 1,291,328.
It’s important to note that these figures are taken from Steam Charts and may therefore not be entirely accurate. This does not, however, change the fact that the game continues to surprise as it continues to expand. The game has sold more than 10 million copies, with the developer Bluehole planning to release an Xbox One version later this year.
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds sees players duking it out in a Battle Royale type set-up where the last player to survive is crowned the victor. It’s basically a large scale last man standing deathmatch where the victor isn’t necessarily the person with the most accuracy.
