PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to stream on Facebook

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to stream on Facebook”

It briefly passed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and vaulted into second place at one point, only trailing DOTA 2 in the number of concurrent players.

In fact, PUBG has consistently ranked among the most-viewed games on Twitch since it entered into early access, occasionally even unseating Twitch king League of Legends to become the highest ranking game on the platform.

Expect the full product release of Battlegrounds later this year. In the meantime, Greene has laid out plans of a weekly Facebook livestream series to keep fans in the loop on what the development team are doing. This begins tonight at 7pm-10pm PST/3am-6am BST and will presumably run on Monday nights or Tuesday mornings depending on where you live.

Bluehole VP and executive producer Chang Han Kim revealed more in a statement.

Since its debut on Early Access back in March, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has risen through the Steam's best seller charts and become a phenomenon with over four million in sales already, with developer Bluehole Studio set to bring fans closer to the game's development starting tonight. "We believe that featuring PUBG livestreamers on Facebook further strengthens our commitment to the community while extending the reach of our game to a global audience". From thereon livestreams will alternate hosts "between content creators from the PUBG community" and some of Bluehole's community managers. Thanks to a recently signed exclusive deal between the social media giant and Bluehole Inc., we can expect news about content updates to come out of what will now be a weekly community broadcast from PUBG's Facebook page.

Creator, Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene has announced that the full release of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be delayed slightly until the end of 2017.

It was revealed last week that the game will spend a bit longer in Early Access than had been previously expected.
