Enter a Battle Royale in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds

BattlegroundsHeaderPlayerunknown (Brendan Greene) is responsible for creating a Battle Royale game mode for ARMA 3 and H1Z1. But today it’s announced that they’re expanding that to a standalone game – Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. To make this a reality, Bluehole (the people who made TERA) are helping with development. Playerunknown relocated to Bluehole’s Korean headquarters in order to be directly involved in the development process.

“I’ve always wanted to create a standalone game based on the mod I created for the ARMA series, and working with Bluehole gives me the resources and creative freedom to build the experience I’ve always envisioned,” said Brendan Greene. “We have a great development team in place, and our goal is to create a realistic open world experience with the deep gameplay and strong combat mechanics.”

Battlegrounds is set to release on PC sometime in the near future. For the latest details about the game, check out their Twitter and Website.
