Creator Brendan Greene's tweet dropped in the fact that the game hit the milestone at the weekend, just to be sure we all know that it wasn't beaten to the punch by Epic's Fortnite, which also hit 20m this weekend. Which is doubly astounding when you realise it has done so in just over seven months on sale as an Early Access game. Now, the developer has chose to celebrate the 20 million milestone with a new patch that brings small and yet important changes to the game.

It's baffling how much of the game is blatantly copied directly from PUBG, from how the plane works to how the island looks, there's even red zones you need to avoid.

Halladay, who was known for his successful career with the Philadelphia Phillies, left behind his wife and two young sons. Karkow was killed along with passenger Cagri Sever, the company's newly hired director of engineering.


For those who may have been living in a cave for the past year, PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds is a large-scale multiplayer deathmatch inspired by movies like The Hunger Games and Battle Royale. The title was launched at the end of September, so the impressive number of players has been reached in only a few weeks. In addition to selling over 20 million copies, the game has set records for most concurrent players on Steam, surpassing 2 million in October. PUBG 1.0 will hit PC sometime in December, while the full version of Fortnite is slated to arrive in mid-2018. This player figure includes both paid base game and the free-to-play Battle Royale game.
