A YouTube user name McDrahir has uploaded a replay that depicts a disastrous attempt at storming an apartment building in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. But it’s also pretty good abstract art.
Before PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds released, it had become a viral sensation on Twitch, sold 13 million copies and even got its own esports tournament complete with a $US350,000 ($497,796) prize pool. It was in early access, a public, but incomplete version of the game sold to help publishers bankroll the game's development and invite user feedback. It was PUBG's crawl towards a full release that tipped me off that "early access" is in fact a meaningless term.
It’s called PUBG Project Thai and went into closed beta testing last month.
Tencent Games already publishes PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds around much of the world. But why have one battle royale when you can have two?

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds keeps on expanding, adding new guns and maps that change the game’s pace into something faster than before. The game now has new rules for armour loot drops and tweaks to the dreaded blue zone.
PUBG’s latest event mode, Early Access Memories, brings back many of the game’s rough edges. Playing it reminded me why I fell in love with the game in the first place.
During a livestream yesterday Twitch streamer Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek stated that he received a one month ban from PUBG following an incident where he played alongside a hacker.
The ban comes on the heels of lengthy community speculation as to whether or not the game’s developers would actually discipline one of their game’s most popular streamers.
Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, a popular PUBG Twitch streamer known for his skilled play and quick reflexes, recently played alongside a hacker. When fans noticed the hacker on Shroud’s stream and shared clips on social media, it sparked debate over what to do about top players fraternising with cheaters.
The newest map in the PC version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is awesome in a lot of ways. However, there is a location in the southwest portion of the islands where you can hide under the map and ambush unsuspecting players.
