The Top Best-Selling Multiplayer PC Game Revealed

Everyone enjoys a good multiplayer game, especially if it’s a fight to the death kind of game. In this review, we touch on a very different genre of game called battle royale. This is a genre classified according to a combination of gaming elements. Introducing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, also known as PubG, with elements of survival, action, exploring, and scavenging capabilities.

PubG was developed and published by the PUBG Corporation. Released worldwide in 2018, it was made available for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Android, and IOS platforms.

Last Man Standing

A maximum of a hundred players can play, either solo or in teams, land on a mapped island. With no weapons or equipment from the start of the game, players stealthily scrounge the island for tools and weapons.

The aim of the game is to kill opposing players in order to win each match. Individual matches can last up to 30 minutes. As each player is wiped out, surviving players can loot the bodies of their gear.

The map shrinks every few minutes of gameplay. This makes it harder for players to get to the safe zone timeously, ultimately resulting in player elimination. As the size of the map decreases, the player defeat stats increase. Alas, it becomes trickier to continue the deathmatch and the ending draws close.

Player Rewards and Game Reception

In-game currency is awarded to players based on the duration of survival, enemy kills, and damage dealt with players during matches. This currency enables players to buy cosmetic item bundles which enhance weapons and the like.

Becoming a Best-Seller

The earliest release of the game was in 2017 on certain platforms and in selected countries. Since 2017 until recently, it’s been nominated for multiple awards. Listed below are the awards won so far:

Best Multiplayer Game awarded twice at two different events

The Best Online RPG of the Year

The role-playing game industry began to steadily grow in the late 70s to the early 80s. Many RPG games followed the design and ambiance elements of Dungeons & Dragons after its development and successful release in 1974. However, the current RPG game that created an evolutionary turn for the gaming genre is Dark Souls III.

Third-Person Action RPG

Dark Souls III is the fourth game of the Souls series developed by FromSoftware. It was released by Bandai Namco Entertainment in 2016 with off-the-chart sales worldwide. The game has two modes of gameplay; single-player and multiplayer. It was made available for gameplay on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.

This game of the Souls series is identical in design to the Dark Souls II game. The standard game has two downloadable expansion content packs; Ashes of Ariandel and The Ringed City respectively. Depending on the game performance of players, there are four possible endings to the game. There is also an expensive full version of this fourth installment available called Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades. This version is the standard game plus the two expansion packs altogether.

Special Editions

Fans of the Dark Souls III game can get their hands on three special editions. These are the Apocalypse Edition, The Collector’s Edition, and The Prestige Edition. Each edition offers something extra and deluxe for game players.

The first edition, Apocalypse, comes with a special case and the original soundtrack of the game. The Collector’s Edition, the second, comes with a Red Knight figurine, artbook, a new map, and extraordinary packaging. The Prestige Edition, the third, comes with all the second edition’s goodies plus a Lord of Cinder resin figurine, which pairs with the Red Knight figurine.

The Success

Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced Dark Souls III was the first best-selling game in the history of Bandai. In 2016, the game was nominated for a few awards. That same year, it scooped the Game of the Year and Outstanding Action/Adventure Game awards.

Fortnite

Nominated for various awards since 2017, Fortnite won two awards this year; People’s Voice Award for Best Multiplayer/Competitive Game and Best Ongoing Game. The game was made available for the following gaming platforms: Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, MacOS, and PlayStation 4.

Developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly, it is a single-player and multiplayer game falling into the co-op virtual world survival genre.

Developers of Fortnite have said that the creation of the game was inspired by an idea of combining the gameplay elements of Minecraft and Left 4 Dead. The art and design elements were combined settings from Gears of War and the Unreal series with an undertone of a Looney Tunes cartoon design to lessen the grim ambiance of the game.

Recap

After a treacherous storm strikes, the entire human population is almost wiped out. The survivors of the storm are faced with an onslaught of drudge-like creatures as a result. Survivors are quick to build a storm shield to get through the fight against the raging storm and creatures to save each other from further harm.

Gameplay

Players of this game can embark on different missions coupled with random maps. Each successful completion of the missions lets the players collect supplies, expand their weaponry, earn rewards, as well as upgrade their characters and teams.

At the end of 2017, Epic Games announced that Fortnite had over a million players since the huge success of digital pre-orders in July. Game players have reported that despite Fortnite being mostly free to play, the game is thoroughly enjoyed because it’s fun and exhilarating from start to finish.
