Despite only being an Early Access title, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has become one of the most popular games to date. The awards keep stacking up as there are now plenty of PUBG records to date.
Plenty of PUBG records
According to Dot Esports, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has broken plenty of records on the platform and in gaming. The game launched back in March as an Early Access title and was a breakthrough because of its unique gameplay and battle royale themes.
So far, the PUBG awards include “First video game to reach 2 million concurrent players on Steam,” “Fastest time to sell 1 million units for a Steam Early Access game,” and “Fastest Steam Early Access game to gross $100 million.” Similarly, the game also surpassed Dota 2 for the concurrent player record while also breaking the two million player barrier.
Now, the game will pass 20 million copies while also earning the “Most actively played game on Steam” award. For the Golden Joysticks, the game scored the “Best Multiplayer Game” and “PC Game of the Year” awards.
That said, the game will finally be leaving Early Access sometime next month. The final version will be coming to the PC and Xbox One X while also getting more improvements in the near future. That said, there will be a new desert map coming soon, so that’s something to look forward to.
Despite all its awards, the game still suffers from cheaters. Bluehole is still working on various fixes to counter these players. Just recently, cheaters have been pairing up with their fellow cheaters during matches. While it’s not a permanent solution, it’s great to see them fighting against each other.
If the game continues to do well, there is no doubt we will see more PUBG records. You can play the battle royale title now on the PC.
