Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds was one of the few games that kickstarted the Battle Royale genre which has been alive since December 2017. It has had numerous updates, and have personally played through it casually. It offers a bit of a more simulation (but not to the point of Miltary Sim) gameplay that emphasis ammo management. With the right group of friends is he heck of a time.
