Default PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Just been watching this game on a Twitch stream, looks pretty interesting. Wondering if anyone has played it, or has any thoughts on it?

From what I have seen its a round based, open world, small team based, FPS with DayZ style loot mechanics, for lack of a better description.

Quote:
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback. Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor. This realistic, high tension game is set on a massive 8x8 km island with a level of detail that showcases Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities.

PLAYERUNKNOWN aka Brendan Greene, is a pioneer of the Battle Royale genre. As the creator of the Battle Royale game-mode found in the ARMA series and H1Z1 : King of the Kill, Greene is co-developing the game with veteran team at Bluehole to create the most diverse and robust Battle Royale experience to date

Not Just a Game. This is BATTLE ROYALE

Edit - video below - Thanks Sledge.



It is currently getting ready to launch via Steams Early Access, as of 24th of March 2017.

I have never played this genre, if there are a few, any recommendations?

Not sure if you're trolling or being serious?

Errr, nah. BR type games aren't CoD'ish. The combat is more similar to ARMA than CoD.

Then you've got the whole shrinking play area thing, long range engagements etc.

If you want to try a game like this now there is a mod for ARMA3.

always wanted to try the mod, so this looks very interesting. And yes nothing like CoD/BF and AFAIK the only game like it (or perhaps at least the first?)

This is essentially ARMA 3 , massive maps & you all jump out of a plane unarmed & have to search for weapons/gear to kill each other, last man standing.. and so it doesnt end up being tedious the map shrinks in on last few players so they can actually find each other.

What's your point?

KoTK was just a remake (and a shit one at that) of the Arma 2/3 Battle Royale mod that was originally developed by PlayerUnknown

ARMA, H1Z1 and ARK all have a take on this game mode.

This game looks more like ARMA with 'friendlier' gun play and a longer time to kill.

Looking forward to this highly viewed on Twitch Dedicated BR Game,

Getting sick of the bugs in H1, like this one for example

Did there end up being Australian/NZ servers? Or do we have to play in Asia/US?
