Its pretty rare for a game to knock perennial favorite League of Legends off the top spot on Twitch. When it happens its usually due to a major event, but i dont think I have ever seen a games release weekend do it before.  This weekend  Battle Royale Smashed into Top Slot on Steam with More Than 67,000 CCUs and 150,000 Peak Viewers on Twitch.

Bluehole and Brendan Greene (aka PLAYERUNKNOWN) have released  details from their successful launch of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS on Steam Early Access. Currently holding strong as the number one seller on Steam, the game has earned more than eleven million dollars in revenue in just three days with more than 67,000 concurrent users (simultaneous active players).

As the first standalone Battle Royale experience from the creator of the genre, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is number one on Twitch’s charts, boasting more than 150,000 viewers at a given time. The game has been featured on more than 3,600 streams since its launch on March 23, 2017.

A last-man-standing shooter, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS drops players on a realistic 8 x 8 km island with visuals that show off Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities. Starting with nothing, they must fight to locate weapons, vehicles and supplies as they strive to be the lone survivor.

I have spent an insane amount of time on this game over the weekend. It is a truly proper ground up Battle Royale game. Even though this game is in early access, and so has a few bugs, its just so fun to play. In my 30 or so games, I have yet to win, but this is for sure going to be a game for content creation, and streaming for our team at Kitsuga.
