Based on a mod first developed by PlayerUnknown for Arma 2, PUBG has succeeded in creating the most exciting and best realized game of the young «Battle Royale» genre to date. The basic principle is that a player, either alone or in a team of up to 4 players, is dropped on an island to search for equipment and weapons and eventually be the last man standing. You only have one life – so try to make the best out of it and emerge as winner!
System requirements Which hardware is needed for PUBG?
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is a very demanding game to run and requires a corresponding hardware setup to be able to play with high graphics quality settings. Christian from the own3d.tv Twitch channel has provided us with his setup as an example, which we have then listed here a little softened. For example, he had named a GTX 1080 graphics card instead of the GTX 1060 listed here, as well as twice the amount of RAM memory. With the following setup PUBG should shine in all its glory without any problems:
This is a rather expensive high-end setup whith which you shouldn’t have any problems with upcoming updates or games. For price-conscious gamers there is of course always the possibility to use the cheaper AMD processors and an equivalent motherboard. PUBG’s minimum system requirements state that an AMD FX 6300 with six cores is the absolute minimum. But just to be able to play other current games, an 8-core processor like the AMD FX-8350 would be a good choice. An alternative, slightly cheaper setup could therefore include the following products:

Clearly understandable tactical arrangements and a good spatial locating of sounds are therefore the most important criteria when it comes to selecting a headset. The following devices are preferred by PUBG professionals worldwide.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is a very complex game with many functions that have to be controlled by single keys. To keep an overview, a gaming keyboard with programmable macro keys is recommended. The following devices are particularly popular with players of Battle Royale shooters like PUBG.
