PlayerUnknown's Battleground (PUGB) is now the first Steam game in history to reach a peak concurrent playerbase of 1 million people. That's right, 1,000,000. The game hasn't even been around for that long, but it's already garnered massive popularity and is quickly breaking every record out there. So far, the game has sold more than 8 million units, which has contributed spectacularly to its popularity.

Breaking the Record

Visual proof of the brand new record was provided on Twitter. You can take a look at the following Tweet to see where exactly it passed "Dota."

That's more than 300,000 players that were on the popular game, a big sign of success for the fairly new game.

The game has also added some new updates that should help bring players back to the game. First, PUBG added first person leaderboards, which will help gamers see who is winning. Second, new buildings that can be looted were introduced on the map. Third, foggy weather conditions will make it more difficult for players to see. And finally, a new gun called the "Mini 14" will be introduced. The gun is customizable and will add to the features of PUBG.

Cheaters Banned

But those weren't the only updates from PUBG. So far, over 150,000 players have been banned for cheating in the popular game. The update was made official on Twitter, and over 8,000 players were banned in less than 24 hours.

The crackdown on cheaters is an encouraging sign for PUBG, as competitor "Overwatch" has struggled to figure out a way to successfully punish those players who either lose purposefully or exit and enter contests immediately.

The game itself employs a report button that allows Steam to weed out the cheaters, and even thos who create another Steam account are usually caught.

PUBG Overall Update

So far, pretty much nothing has gone wrong for a game tabbed as only "early access" at this point. "PUBG" has broken multiple records and has become the most popular game on Twitch in a very short period of time.

New updates added to the game have helped its quality and its creators continue to innovate in a way that should keep players fully engaged. Meanwhile, the game's software is stopping cheaters from ruining what is clearly an enjoyable game for players all over the world.

What's next for PUBG? Will the game break its own record on Steam in the next month? Can it reach 2 million concurrent users playing at once? Only time will tell us if the game will experience even more growth.
