PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Beat’s CS:GO’s Highest Concurrent Players


Bluehole Studios’ PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds seems to be jumping from strength to strength, by hitting an impressive number of 877,844 the title has officially surpassed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s record of  850,485. This impressive feat makes PUBG the second most played game on Steam, just beaten by Dota 2.

That doesn’t mean to say that PUBG isn’t performing as well as Dota 2, yesterday the third person shooter amassed more players than Dota 2, 877,844 players were enjoying the online battle royale experience at one time, beating Dota 2’s count of 842,919.

While PUBG is doing absolutely amazingly, Dota 2’s all time peak is 1,291,328 players so PUBG still has a little while to go.

In other news, PUBG will be receiving a new desert themed map, check out the details here.

There’s a new battlefield coming to the third-person shooter, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S Battlegrounds, and it seems likes it’s going to be super unforgiving.

Creative director Brendan Greene revealed the map during PUBG keynote a Gamescom, the new map will be a dense city centre in a desert area. There will be minimal foliage but loads of high rise buildings perfect for sneaky sniping. The map will feature a primary and secondary downtown, a stadium in the city, and villages around the city area.
