In addition to Minecraft and Fortnite, perhaps one of the greatest success stories of games that are released in an extremely simple but functional form and only supplemented by regular iterative updates, the battlefields of PlayerUnknown still add important new features and continue to grow and expand. One thing that has been missing since publication is any type of fully realized story, with all the pockets of the story being derived primarily from environmental storytelling or simply suggested by the premise and design of the game.
Not anymore because thanks to an ARG campaign they started to expand the story of the game and focus on a group of characters who are responsible for running the tournaments. In a clever frame device for the time we live in, it is presented as a conference call between different employees and appears to be somewhat inspired by film searching in terms of presentation.
Here’s a look at the PUBG Lore Drop video that was mysteriously found on a recovered hard drive.
Especially in times of remote working and blocking, we can all refer to irritating professional conference calls with disturbing colleagues. If you can’t, it may mean that you are the annoying colleague.
The story revolves around a group of four players who got off the grid and managed to escape the island. Identified as Sanhok 4, it is not clear what their motives are or how this story could be integrated into the game as a whole, but it is interesting to see how a story is added to a game that has already made 70 million sales. Perhaps this story is what you need to reach the milestone of 100 million sales.
Players with eagle eyes will notice some allusions to different elements of the game, with some subtle clues hidden throughout the video. Let us know if you can find any in the comments.
