Deal of the day at CDkeys. £17.49 for this early access battle royale style title taking gaming by storm. Like CDkeys facebook for an extra 5 percent off for 'new' customers which takes it down to £16.62! Lowest price I have yet seen.

The game is a lot of fun, will take a while to get into it but the developers have promised long term support, new maps and content etc.

have some heat

Time to get involved? 🤔

Have they cracked down on the Facebook like now? I have been using it for ages even though it’s for new customers but it doesn’t seem to work anymore

2 uses per new account and email I believe. If only there was a way to get a new disposable email and facebook account

Getting close to bite point so just had a look on steam... which highlighted that there was a lot of negative reviews for this game recently... seems mostly to be about massive amounts of hacking and no interest in tackling this by the devs. Shame... it looked interesting.

Isn't this now infested with hackers?

More hackers now wil com, but playing this for 3 months even every game u Wil meet hackers but it's still fun to play

A lot of the negative reviews are from Chinese players who need to buy access to a VPN to get the game to work properly. There are hackers as well though.

Just a review bomb I would ignore it. The game has problems but in 200 hours I haven't noticed a hacker. Not that it's the sort of game that you would know who killed you anyway half the time.

I would suggest maybe watch some streams to get an idea of what state the game is in. And I wouldn't go near it unless you have a decent PC or you don't mind it running like crap.

Of all the games I've played on PC over the last 15-20 years this is actually one with the least amount of hackers. It's also one of the best and most addictive games I've played. I have almost 400 hours on it and I'm just as into it as I was the day I got it. It's a great game. The devs are constantly improving it and the full release is coming out next month so the price will probably go up a bit, I'd say this is the perfect time to buy it.

Being released for the Xbox one on the 12/12 I believe. Won't be this price I'm sure, but I'll wait for the Xbox release. Let's hope I can catch a bargain for the machine before then. Missed the tesco deal. :-

The game actually runs pretty well on a shitty system now. Compared to earlier in the year they've definitely optimised it a lot.

I build and sell PC's and the most recent one I built was a 3rd gen i5 with 8gb ram and a GT 1030 2gb graphics card, and the game gets a consistent 30fps at least and is perfectly playable.

Finally went for this, h1z1 and fortnite both good fun but like look vehicles in this. Time see what all fuss is about

What a dam deal bro

Good fun, but I enjoy fortnite battle royale more

Not really - seen only 2 definite hackers in 450 hours.

Pickup some squad mates and have a blast on this. Incidentally if people want to play some squad action duos or 4 person then post here you may as well.

It's even more fun if you have mics and it makes it a lot easier to get into, since the learning curve is steep in solo mode having someone else or a group to help you out does wonders for the enjoyment of the game

Ignore the negative comments. I’ve put 85 hours in and only came across one hacker.

the devs are cracking down on hacking.


the one thing I would say is that pubg needs a decent pc if you care about hitting 60fps on high res.

1080 less of an issue

It's a good game not optimised ( 80 FPS on a GTX 1080Ti OC @ 3440 x 1440 on Ultra ) but a good game for the money, i just get bored sometimes cause i play on my own a chunk of the time lol its better with a squad. I'll have a good giggle when it comes to the xbox next month and its about £50 lol.

Ignore that just seen its £24.99 and classed as a preview version ! .

Really want to play this but my pc won't be able to run it.

I always think that's a photo of Colin Furze

Chinanumbawan!

Waiting for this game to come to ps4, then I went and got fortnite .... Not sure if I even care if this comes to ps4 anymore.

Always envy your PC Game prices tho.... Well jell

Get it on Xbone, one way of ensuring a level playing field

My advice for anyone who wants to try the game but is unsure... buy it through steam - you can get a refund if you play less than 2 hours and decide you don’t like it like I did.

Cant get a refund if buying through third party

I’m in the UK and unfortunately hacking is rife. The devs are going to take it more seriously but only when it’s emerging from early access.

How will this game even be able to run on Xbox One (apart from Xbox One X) even on the lowest settings? Game is not optimized at all.

For a start like many titles it's better on Nvidia cards. If you have AMD you have a performance penalty.

It's was notorious but it has had performance improvements. It is also technically still 'early access' but a decent i5 and a now 3 year old GTX970 should net you 60FPS on high settings @ 1080p these days. A GTX1070 can easily do 1440p with mostly ultra settings. It's not really outrageous.

You actually don't really want the ultra settings in truth anyway, because you're probably at a gameplay disadvantage if anything thanks to slower frame rates and more foliage being rendered to hide enemies. Aim for 60FPS, you don't need 'ultra' it's barely distinguishable to 'high'.

If anyone is on the fence about getting this I'd get it now, they're gearing up for the 1.0 full release pretty soon (test servers with the update will be rolling out next week) and it'll likely go back up for a full price game or at least be £30+. The big thing with that update is they're moving all the servers to Microsoft rather than Amazon which alone should make a big difference for lag etc. Remains to be seen how the optimization will do but it should be a big step up.

Sorry i have to disagree the game is fully of them now every couple of games i get killed with shot gun from 200 metres away or some one running like flash gordon around the map

So addictive, still no chicken dinner for me nearly 100 hours, got another second spot tonight but I will get one. watch some of the Twitch streamers like Shroud if you want to see gameplay first.

china number one!

Can also confirm that you do encounter the odd hacker, played less than 100 hours but lost count of how many blatant ones I've seen. Sometimes it's obvious, headshots from impossible distances with almost zero aim time (I've watched pro streams on youtube and don't see these kinds of feats). Other times it's very hard to spot, as sometimes they just happen to know exactly where you are for no good reason.

Given the number of players banned for hacking so far, it's been almost a certainty to encounter at least one hacker in each game of 100. So people who say "I've played X hundred hours and not seen one!" most likely encountered many but didn't realise. Remember, you can't prove a negative .

On the plus side it does sound like the devs are doing something, given the number of bans, but whether they can win the arms race with the hack creators remains to be seen. I've heard bans don't work on their own as they simply buy another copy with a stolen credit card (for a few dollars) off the dark web, play for a few days before it gets revoked.

Anyone know when this is on sale until please?

Bought it on last deal and didn't like it that much.the time to me is way to short for exploring.it feels rush rush rush

Still feels incomplete, holding out for under a tenner. Although there's an argument it should be free given all the loot-boxing.
