Available at Steam, PUBG Battlegrounds is an online multiplayer battle royale game genre in which you compete in one-on-one, duo-on-duo, or squad-on-squad matches. You arrive on the map alongside 100 other players in strategic locations to scavenge for loot and weapons, and you must survive the game to become the last man or team standing. Over time, the game’s map’s safe area gets smaller, allowing remaining players to go to smaller places to force them into a battle. You win the game by being the last remaining person or team standing in the game.
