PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a large-scale last man standing death match online multiplayer video game developed by PUBG Corporation inspired by the 2000 film Battle Royale. Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene eventually expanded it into a standalone game. Players join the game into an island where they scavenge for for weapons and equipments they will need for competitive survival while trying to kill other players. The safe areas become smaller so as to force encounters. The last team or player standing wins the round.
Each match starts with players parachuting from a plane into a 8 kilometer by 8 kilometer sized map. The flight path is different each match and the players determine the best time to eject. Players start without any gear and items are distributed across the map for the players to acquire at their own risk. They can also loot killed players to acquire the gears.
