Bluehole and Brendan Greene have released details from their successful launch of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS on Steam Early Access. Currently holding strong as the number one seller on Steam, the game has earned more than eleven million dollars in revenue in just three days with more than 67,000 concurrent users (simultaneous active players).
As the first standalone Battle Royale experience from the creator of the genre, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is number one on Twitch’s charts, boasting more than 150,000 viewers at a given time. The game has been featured on more than 3,600 streams since its launch on March 23rd.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter that drops players on a realistic 8 x 8 km island with visuals that show off Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities. Starting with nothing, they must fight to locate weapons, vehicles and supplies as they strive to be the lone survivor.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is available now on Steam Early Access.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
