PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds a.k.a PUBG is an online multiplayer battle royale arena that was developed and published by PUBG Corporation (Bluehole). Created by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene and evidently inspired by Japanese film "Battle Royale" in which high school students are forced to fight to death by Japanese government. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was released on Steam via early access in 2017. In 2018 a mobile version was launched that quickly gained recognition.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds The Game
PUBG is a player versus player first person shooter where up to one hundred players are pinned together in a large map to search for weapons, gear and vehicles until there is only one left. Every match starts with players parachuting from a plane and picking a location to land and each round shrinks the wide area circle that forces the players to get closer to each other.
History of Battle Royale:
2012 Battle Royale game mode wasn't very popular back in 2012 when Minecraft Mod called Hunger Games was being played, most of the players confirm this is where the whole idea of battle royale started growing.
2013 Arma 2 Dayz Battle Royale. Good old days of broken physics and wonky rag dolls. Arma 2 was a game that was built on its mod DayZ, you might have heard of it.
2014 Arma 3 Battle Royale was a much improved version of the older one, although it still required many annoying bug fixes.
2015 ARK: Survival of the Fittest. Having begun life as a mod, Ark: Survival of the Fittest became a free-to-play standalone game in early 2016.
2016 H1Z1 King of the Hill is a free-to-play battle royale game developed and published by Daybreak Game Company. The game's development began after the original H1Z1 was spun off into two separate projects in early 2016: H1Z1: Just Survive and H1Z1: King of the Kill.

PUBG Video Performance Options
Many things I've learned from playing DayZ is that rendering distance matters, a lot! When you find yourself in an open field while playing on a bad setup there is no way you will spot the shooter clicks away. Figuratively speaking, commitment matters, even if you don't have the guns to fire. So let's explain how modifying the options in PubG affects the visuals.
In main menu tap Esc > Settings > Graphics
Language Setting - Select your language of preference
Highlights Auto Capture - Once you start your game in the lobby, GeForce Experience will ask if you want to enable NVIDIA Highlights for PUBG.
Display Mode - Fullscreen is recommended, in fact, its proven that it offers the most stable performance, plus less input lag.
Resolution - Always go with your native resolution if your setup can handle it, if not then keep reducing until you think its playable, changing the resolution has the biggest performance impact.
FPP Camera FOV (Field of View) - Very high field of view makes everything appear smaller and harder to spot. Our suggestion is somewhere around 90.
Brightness - Some newer monitors have brightness boost mode (enables the monitors to light up dark areas of the game), so it's not necessary to maximize this option, either way this is personalized and doesn't affect performance, if you think it's too hard on your eyes, then reduce the brightness.
Overall Quality - Ranges from Very Low to Very High or Custom if you want to optimize the video options yourself.
Screen Scale - Sharpens the image and affects frames if you increase it too much, if you think your picture isn't clear enough somewhere around 120 is the sweet spot
Anti-Aliasing - This option smoothens the edge of the 3D objects in the game. In Pubg when set to Ultra, you are able to sport movement much better, but bear in mind that if affects performance greatly.
Post Processing - Usually most of the players keep in on low but if you think your image needs more clarity you can increase it a bit at the cost of a few frames per second.
Shadows - They don't really matter in these type of games, shadows can't be fully disabled anyways, so why not keep them on Low and gain a few fps in return.
Textures - Many would agree textures should be set to Medium, since they look significantly better then Low and not much different then High and it is not too hard on fps.
Effects and Foliage - They control the looks of plants and carious in game effects, if you are not in it for the looks, set it to Low as it is a recommended option anyway.
View Distance - The most important options in PubG. Tons of players have difficulties optimizing this part. Our suggestion is Medium because you still see far enough and at the same time keep a fair amount of fps to your performance.
Vertical Synchronization (V-Sync) - Nobody has this option enabled, on account of not receiving as much as you are sacrificing, to elaborate, you do not notice much difference in action but you lose a significant amount of FPS. V-Sync gets rid of off-setting lines on your screen, basically it synchronizes the monitors refresh rate and in-game frame rate.
Motion Blur - Motion Blur Reduction is a technology on modern gaming displays. Due to something called 'sample-and-hold', frames are displayed until the image refreshes again, which, when displaying fast moving images, can cause the image to blur.
This is our suggestion for your Video options, also what many consider the best:
• Screen Scale: 100-120
• Anti-Aliasing: High
• Post-Processing: Very Low
• Shadows: Very Low
• Textures: Medium or High
• Effects: Very Low
• Foliage: Very Low
• View Distance: Very Low
• V-Sync: Off
• Motion Blur: Off
If you are annoyed with performance lag, you are not alone. Here are few easy steps you can perform in other to get rid of lag:
1 ) Steam launch option
There are a few launch options, you can set to reduce PUBG lag which can substantially improve your gameplay. To add these:
go to Steam, right click on PlayerUnknown’s Battleground and select “Properties”. Once there, click on “Launch Options” and add the following:
“-refresh 144 -maxMem=13000 -malloc=system -force-feature-level-11-0 -USEALLAVAILABLECORES -sm4”
2 ) Update your graphics drivers
It's very important to update the drivers for you gfx model, to do so. Google the model of you graphics card and add drivers next to it, it should lead you to official website where the drivers are free.
