PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has amassed over 765,781 concurrent players according to SteamCharts, making it without doubt one of the most successful Early Access games of all time. Creator Brendan 'PlayerUnknown' Greene has spoken regarding the success of the game in an interview, saying he was shocked at the success of the game.

PUBG features a do or die multiplayer where players start off with nothing and must scavenge supplies and weapons to be the last person standing on the battlefield. It's also one of the most discussed games here on GD, holding the top spot on the home page for quite a while now.

Brendan spoke to GamesReactor regarding the success of the game. He said the developer team isn't taking the success of the game to their heads (sure) and they're focused on the future of the game as well as inducting new folks into their group. He's confident that the game will be out of Early Access by the end of this year and his team is planning to release a desert map with abandoned skyscrapers.

This game is terribly optimised. Even on low. It crashes and has not loading textures.. my pc shoukd play it. But it doesnt...


Also. Lots of stories of peoplr getting banned for no reason. Because a streamer wanted to.. because he was killed for instance.. lol.

It's not the best optimized game out there, but its not that bad. U might have something wrong with your rig. Should do well with medium atleast.

I agree, if they keep updating the game with new features, adding extra maps, new weapons etc, they might get a stable playerbase, otherwise they are going to be long gone, soon.

Line 9 : "He's confident that the game will be out of Early Access by the end of this year and his team is planning to release a desert map with abandoned skyscrapers."


This might answer your question.

I don't know if I should buy the game. I just need to know if it's gonna run over 60 FPS on my rig on 900p.


I've heard that it's poorly optimized.

No it won't run over 60fps unless you are ready to drop settings quite a lot.

Huh? Why the downvotes? He isn't wrong, I at least had to drop setting quite a bit with my rig to get it run stable. It is a demanding and badly optimized game.

i don't know whats going on but i can run the game high-ultra and get 60fps easily but in certain areas my fps will drop to high 40's and it's totally playable.

I had to drop most of my settings down to medium to run it smoothly whole the time, but I'm on 1440p so it's quite a bit more demanding than 1080p for example.

The game sure is great. But the optimization needs to improve a lot.

I run it at a pretty much constant 60+ with my settings on ultra, and it's heavily CPU based, with a CPU like that you should have 0 problems at ultra even at your res, if not ultra at 80+ at 1080p, you really needn't worry, if not, buy it, try it, and refund it if it's so poor, it's worth a go:)
I think PUBG isn't a game where aesthetics really matter in the same vein as CSGO anyway.
