One of the hottest games that’s popular among PC gamers today is PUBG or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. This is a battle royale style multiplayer game where players parachute out of an airplane to an island where they scavenge for weapons to use in their aim to become the last man standing. While the map area is approximately 8 kilometers by 8 kilometers the available safe area keeps getting smaller so players will have no choice but to converge in this safe area forcing the elimination of the competition. A lot of people are playing this game and if you search for the recorded game streams at YouTube you will find that matches are very exciting.
