Everybody except me is playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, apparently
Tarryn van der Byl·
It’s not that I don’t want to play it, but I’m waiting on the Xbox One launch because I’m a lame-o console gamer like that. Whatever, shut up, your mom’s a lame-o console gamer. In the meantime, though, more people are playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds every day on Steam than any other non-Valve game, and the FOMO is real, you guys.
According to new data from SteamSpy, the frying pan murder sim has totally bossed the service’s daily stats since it launched in March, with zero depreciation in the subsequent months. Where most other games would normally show a drop as players find new things to play, this one is only increasing until it presumably collapses space-time and becomes a black hole apocalypse.
This week, the game surpassed 10 million copies sold, and probably another 10 million since then, and by next week, I expect that ownership will be mandatory in developer Bluehole’s post-black hole apocalyptic new world order. Oh, you laugh now but wait.
