PUBG is perhaps the greatest title ever created on the multiplayer battle-royale genre. I remember playing the game for the first time on PC and realizing its potential. Since its initial release, it has gone through a considerable evolution. The amount of popularity that it got was also because of the number of professional gamers playing the game.
Later, the game also made it to the consoles. PS4 and Xbox one got the game and it was well-received by the fans of the game. But we have seen that the number of players of the game has dropped significantly. But, PubG does not want it to happen, so they have added Bots via the new update. So, let us see how this affects the gamer perception.
The number of PUBG players is still at large. it is still one of the popular game among streamers. But the fact is that the number of players who have been at it since the release is large. Now, it is a fact that the skill of these players is a lot higher than any newcomers. But this also poses a huge problem for the developer. Since these players are so good that any newcomers to the game are not able to survive.
This fact was analyzed by the developer. This vastly discourages the players from playing the game. If they are not able to survive the game, they think that there is no point in staying in the game. Plus, there is no fault on part of these players. This is because the existing players are so good that newbies do not stand a chance.
Hence, the update
To combat this problem, the developer has added update 7.1 to add bots to PUBG. They have been made in such a way that experienced players do not face these bots. Only inexperienced players or newbies will be facing them and it will allow them to proceed to further stage of the match and will allow them to defend only a smaller portion of the map.
This is bound to increase the player reception of the game. What do you think, let us know in the comments.
