This game is inspired by the 2000 Japanese film, Battle Royal. In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill each other while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round. The game can be played with a four men squad or with two men (duo), or it can be played singly. you can also choose between Third Person Perspective (TPP) mode or First Person Perspective (FPP) mode. The game also has various other modes such as Classic mode, Team Death Match (TDM) mode, Snipper training mode, Hardcore mode, Payload mode, Zombie mode, Arcade mode, etc. There are currently four maps in the classic mode:
- Erangle – Area of the map is 8 x 8 Km^2 but the landmass is only 6 Km^2 (almost 51.47 percent)
- Miramar- Area of the map is 8 x 8 Km^2 with 80.59 percent landmass
- Sanhok – Area of the map is 4 x 4 km^2 with 49.26 percent landmass
- Vikendi – Area of the map is 6 x 6 km^2 with 40.29 percent landmass.
It received positive reviews from critics, who found that while the game had some technical flaws, it presented new types of gameplay that can be approached by players of any skill level and was highly replayable. The game also received several Game Of The Year nominations, among other accolades. The game has also been banned in some countries for allegedly being harmful and affective to young players.
It is a player versus player shooter game in which up to 100 players fight in a battle royal, a type of large scale last man standing deathmatch where players fight to remain the last alive. Players can choose to enter the match solo, duo or with a small team of up to 4 people. The last person or team alive wins the match.
Each match starts with players parachuting onto one of the four maps. The plane’s flight path across the map varies with each round, requiring players to quickly determine the best time to eject and parachute to the ground. Players start with no gear and once they land, players can search buildings, ghost towns, and other sites to find weapons, vehicles, armor, and other equipment. Killed player’s gears can also be looted. The safe area of the map decreases with time and players start to gather in a relatively compact area and hence the battle for survival becomes intense. The last man or team to survive wins the match.
