Chances are that you’ve probably heard of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds game by now if you’re reading this, as it has sent PC players into a frenzy over the past two weeks. But if you haven’t, here are the basics: it’s a battle royale style game that pits you against 99 other players set on a massive map, and the last to survive wins the match.
This morning, we’ve now learned that the hot game has sold over $11 million in revenue already in its 16 days on Steam’s Early Access platform, selling over 1 million copies to date [via Gamesindustry.biz].
What’s more, its concurrent users on Steam has peaked at over 89,000. And, the game does impressive Twitch numbers, with concurrent viewers reaching over 150,000, placing it frequently at the top of Twitch’s featured games list.
Korean developer Bluehole noted that it plans to have Battlegrounds in Early Access for no more than six months before releasing a final version of the game. That seems a bit optimistic, given the fact that the game currently has as many performance issues and bugs as it does right now.
We’ve spent over 100 hours in-game so far, and we’re loving every minute of it. The game is a thrilling multiplayer game from start to finish, and it has the ability to create uniquely tense moments as you get closer and closer to the endgame; we highly recommend it. Also, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it on consoles following its PC release.
