Playerunknown's Battlegrounds Videos

Earlier this week, a live action trailer for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was released and it quickly went viral. There were two main reason for this; firstly it was excellently produced and exciting to watch, but the real surprise was that it was advertising PUBG on mobile phones. Yes, you heard right, PUBG, the game Team Eurogamer play way too much of, is now playable on Android and iOS devices. Bonkers!

As regular viewers of our YouTube channel will know, myself and the rest of the video team are huge fans of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. It's not just the game we've fallen in love with though, I've also been spending an unhealthy amount of my time with the Replay Mode.

Earlier this year, Brendan Greene tweeted out a few teaser images of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' upcoming desert map. Ever since then, he's been drip-feeding new information to eager fans, but a lot of details are still up in the air. What new weapons will be available? Will there be an underground bunker? Can we really ride that bicycle?!

PUBG's most iconic weapon isn't a shotgun, an assault rifle or an SMG. In fact, in most other contexts, you wouldn't even consider it much of a weapon at all, you'd probably just use it to make eggs. But here, in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, it carries a greater meaning, a higher purpose. Oh and also, if you stick it on your bum, it could very well save your life. I am, of course, talking about the frying pan.

Watch: H1Z1's Combat Update is a step in the right direction but it's still not a patch on PUBG

Earlier this week, H1Z1's Battle Royale style spin-off, King of the Kill, released its first big update in what seems like an age.

The 'Combat Update' has retuned and rebalanced the core mechanics in a bid to perfect the game's signature, action-packed, arena shooter gameplay.

Along with a complete overhaul of how the weapons handle, there's also been changes to the UI, improvements to player movement and also five new points of interest have been added to the map.

VideoWatch: The video team fights to the death

...in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

I think it's safe to say that the Eurogamer video team has the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds bug at the minute. It's also a truth universally accepted that, at any given moment, the people on said team are only a hair's breadth away from attempting to murder one another. So, in order to combine these two interests, this week we set ourselves a challenge. Splitting into two teams, we jumped into the same game of Battlegrounds in order to see who could survive the longest.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is quickly becoming a favourite among the Eurogamer video team. While we're hardly what you'd call pro players, there's still something undeniably fun about running around the game map, frantically gathering weapons in a bid to stay alive. Even if you die in the opening minutes, there's something about Battlegrounds that lends itself well to stories. Like the time I got confused and punched Chris to death, for instance - or the time we actually managed to win, against all odds.
