PUBG Corp. shows off smaller map, which hits public testing in April

PUBG Corp. shows off smaller map, which hits public testing in April

We recently had a call with Frank Villarreal, CEO of esports organisation Rogue, and during our conversation we asked about how much goes into investing in a new team, at which point Villarreal explained about Battle Royale games specifically, including an interesting trend he's noticed with regards to Fortnite.

The games which are made by PUBG are generally made to get an angle on the opponents.

While Epic touted then, "We believe this is the future of games", it seems they may have underestimated the biggest part of this announcement as it was not revealed until later.

The new Fortnite Starter Pack was accidentally leaked a few weeks back in now available to download on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The pub also offers attendees to play Rocket League and Federation Internationale de Football Association, though Fortnite is the only game attached with a prize. I placed fourth with a whopping eight kills in my first match, and I chalked it up to the game being full of inexperienced players.

Fed announces USA rate increase
ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude shed 7 cents to $65.10 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The Fed raises interest rates, more US tariff announcements loom, and profits at Chinese banks are set to surge.

The objective is the same, you are thrown onto an island from an airplane with up to 99 players and the play area keeps reducing. "It grows the genre".

The release strategy of having two different studios do PUBG games seemed silly at first, but it's clear that unlike NetEase's titles, one clear victor emerged: the Lightspeed-developed version over the Timi-developed version. It's getting battle royale to a lot more people.

My own life sees me focusing on Fortnite, more than any other game.

Which is to be expected given the map's relatively diminutive proportions. The user is encouraged by small map size, enclosing electric storm and highly visible building system with other players. PUBG also has an entry price of $30. Those can be spent on cosmetic Battle Royale items, put toward the Battle Pass (which provides access to weekly challenges), or spent on Save the World items, schematics, and characters. That whole tension of battle royale can now be experienced by anyone, regardless of the platform they're on. Therefore, whatever improvements they are going to do to Fortnite, they are going to do the same on their game engine as well and vice versa. It's all just a different form factor. For Sony and Microsoft to support their customers well they have to be open to all their customer's friends - their real world friends - otherwise they're breaking up real-world social groups.
