How well would an i3-4170 and GTX 1050ti run this? Only have a 720p monitor right now.

Not very optimized atm. My fps is all over the place it seems on a 1060. It's playable for sure but far from optimized. If anything you can grab the game on Thursday and see how it plays and get a refund if it's terrible for you.

Im really enjoying the game. once you hit the ground everything is so chaotic.. i usually try landing on rooftops.

Third does it a little but not as much as first. I use third while outside and first while in buildings. Might have to get comfortable playing third all the time. Most first person games don't affect me this way. Changing the FOV usually helps when they do. Is there a way to change FOV in PUBG?

To my knowledge there is not a FoV slider there yet, sadly 😕

Overall looks really nice though. Gunplay looks satisfying, it has a fair amount of content and it seems to pretty much take the good things from both Arma 3 and H1Z1's version of the gametype.

Headshot is usually 1-2 hit kill regardless of what you got, outside maybe head 3 or something so there's not really a lot of hits you can soak up. Armor 2-3 will allow you to take a couple more to the chest but that's about it, think you die pretty fast as it is.

Yeah I watched it from Sacriel POV. That was hilarious.

I tried it today solo. It's pretty tense, I finished 7 on one of my game with just 2 kill but trying to outrun the blue circle as I choose the worst spawn possible.

Been watching some streams of these recently, definitely looks like it's in between Arma 3 & H1Z1 in terms of the tactical/methodical gameplay & the arcade-y shooter feel. Like Tecnniqe said above. Looks pretty fun & even long range gunfights can be pretty intense.

Would love for one of these types of games to hit the PS4. Though I'm curious to see how they'd handle the looting system & inventory there.

They have interest in doing console port of Battlegrounds, but they want first focus on PC version and get it released. Being on UE4 should make porting at least easy-ish.

Inventory system needs overhaul to work better with pad, but rest? Why it wouldn't work when you look at core mechanics? CPU intensity also could be an issue to fight with, but lets see what they can do with that during PC development.

That's great to hear, hope you're right. But yeah, it still definitely has some rough edges they have to look at overall.

I imagine it's possible but this game runs pretty rough on systems that are FAR superior to consoles in terms of technology. I know lots of optimizations are in the the future for this game but I wouldn't really get my hopes up for a port anytime soon tbh. This game also wants to become competitive in tournaments and the userbase for that will be on PC. H1Z1 was supposed to be ported to console at one point as well but that idea was scrapped. I think this game will do very well regardless of a console port. h1 is at like nearly 3 million copies sold already. All the top streamers who play h1 (casually and professionally in tournaments) say this is a better game and it will be there main BR game so I imagine it will be pretty big. Also all the plans for the game seem really cool. I was just reading they are implementing stuff like bullet deflection so it's possible to say have a bullet deflect off an object and kill someone. Also modding will be HUGE for this game when it hits.

I hope this game gets a nice GAF community more than anything. Duos are super fun but it sucks when you have to do matchmaking and get stuck with a person with no mic. For as popular as h1z1 is I feel like not many people here play it or at least we don't have an active community here for it.

I don't think it's a popular genre on GAF in general but there are a few of us around.

This might be the first time a genre has exploded in popularity with two frontrunner threats at the same time. Will be interesting to see which game ends up on top.

PBUG is definitely slower paced, but the red zones are neat and keep you moving.

Player count doubled during the PUBG beta and H1 also gave free loot boxes away. Wonder if it'll fall on the 23rd.

First match. I'm really unfamiliar with these games. Jumped out of the plane too early, spent the entire match running to the circle. First person I saw shot me while I was in a buggy. Second person who shot at me, I never even saw before dying.

10/10

Game runs pretty damn well for me, or at least better than these games tend to run. GTX 970, i7 4770k. Seems like a pretty damn well fleshed out battle royale type game.

I shot a guy with a tier 2 helmet in the head twice with a 5.56 from around 20 meters earlier and he wasn't even knocked out. That's definitely too much for me.

Stupid questions:

What is the red zone exactly?

Do all cars/vehicles start with gas and just need canisters to refill?

Red zones are artillery barrage zones => go there and eat artillery shells

Cars always spawn with gas. I wouldn't bother with canisters.

I've always wanted to get into these battle royale games but have been super turned off by the 3rd person view and peaking shenanigans that unfairly come with it.

Does Battlegrounds have a 1st person only game mode by chance? If so i'm finally in!

I just dont understand the appeal of the 3rd person view in these types of shooters... it just leads so so many unfair scenarios with looking around cover and ambushing etc. Why do people prefer it?

There'll surely be enough for you to play around with. A lot of support is coming and again if you've not seen the video I posted earlier about the "interview", fairly long podcast typa thing, I suggest you do listen in and get a feel for where they want it going :)
