PUBG Surpasses 600K Concurrent Steam Users, Moves 7 Million Units

We have yet to reach the games official launch and it keeps hitting milestone after milestone.


Bluehole Studio has gotta be burned out celebrating, as every few days it seems PUBG crosses another milestone. Reported by Gamespot, Bluehole can pop yet another bottle of champagne as the game has surpassed 600,000 concurrent users and moved seven million copies of the battle royale shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Regular improvements to the game are likely responsible for keeping current players happy while new additions like first-person servers are pulling in even more players. We have a few tips as well to help you get the best frame rate performance as possible so sudden frame stuttering doesn’t ruin your chance at a chicken dinner.

The consistent growth of the game is causing the developers to change a few things in regards to patching the game. Taking a quality over quantity approach, Bluehole won’t be releasing updates as frequently as they have but will be running test servers longer than normal. This will give them an opportunity to provide more dense updates that improve the game in large chunks as opposed to fixing bits and pieces.

PUBG is a tough challenge and there are lots of efforts on Bluehole’s part to make the experience as fair as possible. Whether you’re one of the 7 million or aim to be a part of the seemingly inevitable 8 million, make sure you don’t stream and explicitly explain that you’re about to exploit a known bug in the game. That kind of thing can get you banned. Who knew?
