It would appear that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has turned something of a corner – it’s back up to more than one million simultaneous players on Steam out of the blue since October.
PUBG has steadily lost players on Valve’s stage since a staggering January 2018 pinnacle of 3.2 million simultaneous players.
After November 2018 saw a low of 895,650 pinnacle simultaneous players, this week has seen a significant increase, with, at the season of production, 1.1 million simultaneous players. It’s the first run through PUBG’s pinnacle simultaneous player check has risen since January 2018. This and we haven’t referenced the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
A ton of this resurgence has to do with the release of the new snow map, Vikendi, which is running down well with players. There’s also another Survivor Pass, which has demonstrated well known. It’s also worth referencing the updated parachute system, which lets you skim or jump amid freefall as well as lets you cut your chute before hitting the ground and, in case you’re sufficiently precise, arrive through a window. This doesn’t sound like a major ordeal, however it’s been described as a gamechanger by PUBG players.
The famous description is that PUBG has, notwithstanding the astonishing prominence of adversary fight royale amusement Fortnite, passed on a demise in 2018. Be that as it may, it has remained Steam’s most mainstream amusement all through, and the portable version is amazingly well known in Asia.
Of course, PUBG has far to go before it catches up to its past glories, and it might never return to that staggering three million simultaneous player check, yet without precedent for some time, PUBG feels like it’s on the up.
