Bluehole Studio's highly successful battle royale third-person shooter #game — "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds" — has been breaking records in terms of the number of its players. That being said, it is expected that other developers will be hopping on the hype train and make games similar to that of "PUBG."

"PUBG" has been reported early on to have reached one million concurrent players which surpassed Valve's MOBA title "Defense of the Ancients 2" ("DotA 2"). The online shooter has smashed that previous record as the recent Steam report shows that it now has over 1.5 million concurrent players as compared to "DotA 2's" 1.2 million players.

Part of "PUBG's" success of may have been due to its highly streamable attributes. It is also very appealing to players due to its varying genres. However, most gaming buffs agree Bluehole should veer away from lashing out at Epic ("#Fortnite's developer) as it will put them in a bad light later on.

'Fortnite's' battle royale goes live

Meanwhile, "Fortnite" will be getting update 1.6.3 today as it will bring forth its own version of battle royale gameplay. The new game mode has been the subject of talk among players as of late as "PUBG's" developer blasted on Epic stating that "Fortnite" "may be replicating the experience for which PUBG [VIDEO] is known" adding that they are thinking of taking "further actions" about it.

Additional tweaks were also made with its September 20 update that made further enhancements with storm safe zones, and falling damages.

Supply drops will also come into play and are expected to contain weapons and loot. Players can also shoot down its balloon to make fall faster. In line with this, three new weapons were added into the game – the Zapotron that is able to fire short bursts of electric blasts, the Tactical Submachine Gun, and the Scoped Assault Rifle.
