The PUBG rise can’t be stopped, as the game hit another major milestone today. With 1.3 million players and counting, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has beaten Dota 2’s highest concurrent player record, and has thereby become the highest on Steam ever.
The highest concurrent player record indicates the amount of people playing the game at the same time. This is even more impressive considering PUBG is still in Early Access, and Dota 2 is a free-to-play game by Valve itself. SteamSpy was monitoring the levels, and spotted the moment when it beat Dota 2’s record yesterday, with Steamcharts showing a peak of 1,305,536.
For the few of you who don’t know, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is an online game, with a style similar to games such as Arma 3 and H1Z1. That is, a battle royale type game. Inspired on the 2000 film Battle Royale, the game starts off by up to a hundred players parachute into a large island and have to scavenge for weapons, equipment and other supplies to kill all other players, while working hard to survive themselves. As the safe area on the island starts decreasing in size, the death toll increases rapidly. The last one standing, is the winner.
The number of players is expected to continue to increase, as new exciting updates are continuing to be announced. For instance, the September update, which adds a new town, and most importantly, foggy weather, resulting into a very low viewing distance, making the game even harder and more nerve-wrecking when this weather occurs.
