PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is one of the most famous battle royale games out there currently. PUBG was developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole. Here’s a PUBG Wallpaper HD.
The game is based on previous mods that were created by Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene for other games, inspired by the 2000 Japanese film Battle Royale. In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.
