There's a PUBG ARG and I'm too L-A-Z-Y to figure it out

Oh, you thought PUBG was just a game about shooting dudes until either you're dead or 99 of them are dead? Wrong, idiot. It's a game where you have to investigate and expose nefarious corporations before you shoot 99 other dudes or die...

The new PUBG map is on an active volcano

Everything, at all times, is dangerous in a battle royale. Everyone has the explicit goal of killing you, and that doesn't make for a lot of downtime and easy breathing. Rarely, though, is the environment trying to kill you too. PUBG's Sea...

PUBG developer wants to keep telling stories for 20 years

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has just released its eighth season of content, helping the battle royale title surpass a staggering 70 million downloads. While it can't be argued that similar titles took PUBG's ball and ran with it, t...

This is the galaxy brain way to use C4 in PUBG

PUBG got C4 added as a throwable explosive last week, and I called it "a frag grenade with a very long fuse." That's accurate, and that's the way most players are using it. C4 has a 25-meter blast radius and causes damage through wall...

PUBG turns C4 into a frag grenade with a very long fuse

It'd be disingenuous to say PUBG is getting C4 today. Since its launch in January, the ultra-small Karakin map has had "sticky bombs" littered all around it. They're meant for breaching walls, but enterprising players will chuck them a...

PUBG is free for the weekend

Everybody's working for the weekend. And when the weekend comes, everyone's playing PUBG. At least they could at no extra cost. Once the world's most popular battle royale game (but now fourth or lower), PUBG will be free on Steam this...

PUBG is testing Ranked mode on PC and bots aren't invited

There comes a time in every young battle royale game's life when bots need to enter the equation whether week-in, week-out players want them muddying up the place or not. PUBG is hoping to help inexperienced players learn the ropes by pitti...

PUBG's Season 7 revamps Vikendi and adds public transit

When PUBG kicked off Season 6 in January, the snow-covered Vikendi map was left out in the cold. Developer PUBG Corp removed Vikendi from public matchmaking in favor of adding the new Karakin map to the random map queue. PUBG Corp wan...

PUBG adds wizards and paladins for a week

PUBG is the original realistic military battle royale. While each of the major battle royale games take a slightly different approach, PUBG is the one that can most claim it's rooted in realism and survival. No abilities, no craf...

You can now create cross-platform parties in PUBG

Last year, Sony started to relax its cross-play initiative, seemingly fueled by a meaningless marketing term: "PlayStation is the best place to play." As it turns out PlayStation is a fine place to play, but it would be even greater if you ...

Karakin is PUBG's quickest and deadliest map yet

For its fifth map, PUBG is going the smallest it has ever gone. In its origin, PUBG was about spreading out, looting up, and finding strategic ways to kill everyone else. As of late, it has trended toward dumping everyone on top o...

PUBG Corp's next game isn't a shooter

It'd be an easy mistake to assume that the next game from PUBG Corp, simply titled Prologue, was a prologue to PUBG. That's the obvious connection to draw. This developer's identity is so entrenched in its one product that it renamed itsel...

PUBG's latest console update adds crossplay support

PUBG Corporation has just unleashed the version 4.3 update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on consoles and it includes a much-requested feature: crossplay. Finally, Xbox One and PS4 players can duke it out against each other from the comf...

PUBG is getting cross-platform play between PS4 and Xbox One

There's about to be more people competing for chicken dinners on consoles. Except, you know, it's still 100 people per match. As a part of today's Inside Xbox presentation from gamescom, it was revealed that PUBG is merging console pla...

PUBG doesn't need a backstory, but here it is anyway

Of all the qualms people may have with the battle royale genre, insufficient bare-bones lore is low on the list. The premise is pretty self-explanatory: Kill or be killed; survive until the end because it is better to survive than to not s...
