PUBG lore had never been the focal point for the seminal battle royale shooter. However, PUBG Corporation surprised us with a beautifully crafted trailer finally giving us some story for the game.


PUBG Lore Finally Revealed


In 1965, a young boy becomes the only survivor of a bombing upon the island of Erangel. Forced to fend for himself, he grows and reflects about how being a survivor shaped him as a person. He becomes insanely rich, turning his war torn home into an arena to test people and make them reach their true potential. The man monitors people across the island on a huge multiscreen, before the iconic map of Erangel is revealed. He welcomes you to his "Battlegrounds", identifying himself as the eponymous Player Unknown.
