Playerunknown's Battlegrounds analysis comes with the latest (yet) version of the game. PUBG lands on PS4 after passing through the PC, the Xbox One and several months after the mobile versions. Is the knot still left to the pioneer of the "fighting kingdom"?
There are still platforms to be accepted Players are not known Battlegrounds (or PUBG). A well-known online multiplayer who broke the PC records and became one of the most powerful exclusive Xbox One – upgraded to Xbox One X – last year, is now coming to PS4, allowing more and more players to discover the pioneer of the "fighting kingdom."
If we can compare what's going on PUBG It's a similar phenomenon Minecraft, which has been tailored to all devices and platforms after its impulse start on the PC. But in this case, the "fighting kingdom" has a drawback, and that is, the genre is harassing competitors who are returning to the same game system. On the one hand, "omnipotent" Fortnite, with its "free play" formula, the more colorful visual style and the structure of the hiding system.
On the other hand, the mode Blackout by Call of Duty Black Ops 4, which includes "gunplay" in the first person characteristic of the saga, and which offers the technical section a very superior one. And we're still waiting for Firestorm Battlefield V, with a similar prerequisite.
PUBG analysis on Xbox One
So at this point, a year and a half after the original release, it's worth wondering if there's still some powder in Bluehole Studio to get a place among fans of this genre. The answer is yes, but it is not easy.
Survival at the border
Perhaps there are still clueless people in the world who do not know the assumption of "all against all" of this type. It's about 100 players jumping from an airplane to an island where they will have to fight until there is only one survivor – in this case, we can also play teams of four men. The combat area is a circle that is gradually decreasing, and that brings us to meet our opponents.
All players start from the start, that is, they must collect the weapons and supplies that are scattered on the map. And these devices may have different types: protective devices, such as helmets or bulletproof vests, bandages and analgesics that recover and, of course, arsenal.
In Players are not known Battlegrounds we can load up to four weapons at a time: a body, a gun, and two rifles (also shotguns or machine guns) that usually make decisions about the game. In addition, you can attach accessories such as muzzle, noise suppression, various optics and extended chargers, which gives us a full range of options.
The strategic point of the game is that our limited inventory (and what we find on our journey) forces us to decide on a long-range rifle but a low fire rate or more versatile weapons, depending on the moment of the game we are in. And when fallen enemies leave their arsenal, in the final section, all players will be fully selected.
PUBG Guide and Tricks
All the weapons that appear in the game are real models (from the most advanced ones, such as the Kriss Vector to the old "guns"), and some include the shotgun selector to decide whether we want automatic, semi-shot or shot.
Main advantage PUBG Compared to other game genres, it has several maps. Each of them has a unique environment and widespread diversity: we can play in a desert environment, in a tropical jungle or on an island with urban and rural areas, each of which is easy to customize the style of the game.
Only maps are available for now Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok, but new scenarios are coming soon. The map was already notified Vikendi, on snowy soil. With PUBG, we also have access to test servers to locate these maps before they are implemented.
Of course, access is always the same, but open areas call us to move more, because we can be an easy target for swordsmen, while other environments (especially cities) are successful in finding coverage and measuring our steps a lot. ,
Each of the maps also has its own vehicles (ground and water) that allow us to move forward with speed but its sound traps our position.
Weekly and daily challenges with their reward
The system of progress is one of the keys to the game (and one of the forms of funding). We can not get "useful" items because it would change the rules of the game, but on the contrary, there are many releasable elements in the cosmetics section: new skins for parachute or guns.
They can be accomplished by completing the mission, paying the currency of the game, or through boxes. In the case of PS4, one of the reservations is motivation that we can use clothing Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series and backpack Ellie in The Last of Us,
It's a way to "show" the times we had a chicken (when we won the Battlegrounds victory by Playerunknown, the game rewards the winner, winner, chicken dinner) between the rest of the community and that's exactly what they are competitive online, right?
A year ago, with Xbox One, we did not dare to rate the game because it was in a timely versionHowever, when it is "complete", we still encounter some important shortcomings. The network code works pretty well and we did not have any problems finding the game, we did not even notice falling or exclusion.
The game runs to 30 FPS stable, p improving PS4 PRO (although it does not achieve a 4K resolution) and does not yet support cross platform play.
Are PUBG and Fortnite similar?
The control system is a bit complicated. Particularly access to accessory or rechargeable menus – which requires us to keep the button pressed for a while – has been sold to us several times. Here, PC users are easier to use (not compatible with the mouse and keyboard on PS4).
First person mode (You can change the perspective at any time) does not allow targeting – because you have to press twice to make the viewing angle – and the technical part is generally not too polished: texture that takes a long time to load, very polygonal elements and forced animations, apart from irregular physics in vehicles. Interior lighting and cracking of buildings and buildings also does not help to improve this aspect.
Overall, this is an approach PUBG is very fun, There are times when the game is slow, but when there are less than 20 players left, things are very animated and in the final stages our pulse accelerates. And it comes with a very small price of 29.99 euros in the basic version.
No wonder this game was so successful in these years – even on YouTube and Twitch – but today it would not be our first choice in terms of "battle royale".
