Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds—or PUBG, as fans know it—has fundamentally overhauled the gaming landscape since its release less than a year and a half ago. By popularizing battle-royale gameplay, it gave rise to Fortnite and an entire generation of similar titles, selling more than 50 million copies in the process. Yet, PUBG is also still very much a work in progress.
That’s not a critical statement; publisher PUBG Corp. pushes updates for the PC and mobile versions and Xbox preview title regularly. The game’s ceasless evolution and improvement has created a stable, fervent user base—a base that’s not shy about asking for new features. Thankfully, lead designer Brendan Greene (PlayerUnknown himself) is all too willing to answer those questions in our ask-the-devs series, Tech Support.
