Daniel Tack and Kyle Hilliard demonstrated the Hunger Games-like appeal of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in a recent video feature. Little did they realize as they fought for resources and ran around in their underwear that the game would soon reach the million copies sold landmark.
Pitting up to 100 players against each other in a game of survival, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been Steam’s top seller since its launch on March 23, leading to the one million milestone. The game is in Early Access and is available for $29.99 on Steam.
Check out more about PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with a preview from the game’s pre-alpha testing.
Selling one million copies this quickly while in Early Access says a lot about the potential for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. I’m excited to watch its progress from here on out and hope it builds on this initial momentum over the months leading into the full release.
