When it was first released there was hardly any hype about it and did not receive much attention at its initial release. Due to that simple fact, the company that created it decided to offer a portion of the game for free and because the game has become probably the most popular in the world now. There are many aspects that make the game unique.
First off, it’s a third person shooter but very animated in its positioning so not so serious in a fashion of terms. Along with being a shooter game you are able to harvest materials such as wood, brick and metal and craft different building structures such as ramps, walls, flooring, and really anything possible. The game starts out with one hundred players all dropping in from a school bus held in the air by a hot air balloon into a giant island with different small towns and places indicated on the map. Each person drops off of the bus and as soon as they land they loot for weapons and protect before somebody else finds the loot first. There are many different types of weapons like shotguns, rifles, rocket launchers and many other different weaponry to find. Players open up golden chests that provide you multiple items usable in game such as potions and weapons as mentioned above. Once a participant has the loot they want they need to move into the storm circle as the exterior storm closes in gradually and forces players together. The storm will gradually decrease your health if you are caught in it till eventually your health runs out. Once your health runs out there is no respawning into the exact same game as you have to start over from the beginning.
The ultimate aim is to be the last one standing and achieve a”Victory Royale”. The key that has been found by most of those highly skilled players is to have the ability to build more efficiently and quickly in the heat of a gun battle. These contractors are usually the most skilled of players and tend to acquire more of the games they play. Inexperienced players which are still learning the overall flow of the game don’t usually find their first win till many games played. As time has gone on the developers of the game have added special limited time game modes to the mix as well to keep the game interesting and their die-hard gamers amused and not getting bored after so long. The mode that has become a favorite of many is the high explosive mode which takes away all normal weapons and leaves players wandering around the map discovering grenade launchers and rocket launchers and a few other specialty weapons to win the game with. These additional modes provide a skill change and enable newer players to become more accustomed to items which are not as prevalent in the standard mode and allows them to experiment more freely so they aren’t unprepared in the regular mode.
Overall, the game is fun for all ages and offers a very good challenge for the aggressive individual in all of us.
