Right now PlayerUnknowen’s Battleground's is in Vanguard under “Game Testing Channel”, so if you want to have some fun with others you can play PlayerUnknowen’s Battlegrounds there. And if you want to see this game become a permanent part of TAW, then fill out Vanguard’s INTEREST FORM, or talk to any of the Vanguard staff members that you are interested in helping out and being apart of this team.
Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is currently smashing it on Steam. Right now, it's the best selling game on the platform and one of the most viewed games on Twitch - not bad for a game that's only been in Early Access for less than a week.
Battlegrounds is one of the latest games in the popular Battle Royale genre - inspired by the classic film from director Kinji Fukasaku - but this one comes with a bit of a pedigree; its creator Brendan Greene, a.k.a Player Unknown, was the brains behind the original Battle Royale mods for Arma 2 and Arma 3.
Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is a competitive survival last man standing shooter. Up to 100 Players are dropped into a fully open 8x8km island, where they must fight each other until only one player/team remains alive. Players begin the match without any items, but can search to find weapons, vehicles, and gear. In order to speed up the match, the battlefield will begin to shrink, forcing players to encounter other hostile players while trying to stay within the shrinking safe area. Apart from solo matches, the game also allows for cooperative play for players to team up into groups of 2 or 4, which is it's own separate mode.
If you have any questions, concerns, or inquiries please contact any member of VG staff. If you have interest in this game or any others not in TAW please fill our future games form.
Awesome game. Been playing since Alpha, it's got tons of potential.
I've been playing this game since ea release on steam last week and have had nothing but a great time. If anyone ever wants to play a round or two, feel free to add me at [TAW] GhostWright.
Ive just picked this up after getting a beta key on the TAWTV and ended up buying it. If anyone wants to help me learn the game add me on steam: whitedragon551
Great game with lots of cool features, would like to see this spin up!
I have now recieved the game, and in squad with friends of me, I manage to get squad rating 6 000. I just love this game. Weapon I use? SKS or Scar-L. Hopefully x8 scope but can do with x4 scope. If not that; Shotgun all the way. Seek out the enemy and go into their faces just to blast them off. Either Sniper or Flanker.
Very interested in seeing some TAW action in this!
