The official name of the chicken game is also called Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds
It is a multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG, a subsidiary of South Korean video game developer “Blue Hole”.
First released on the Microsoft Windows platform, the experience version was officially released on Steam on March 23, 2017.
What is the charm of this battle royale game that everyone loves
Let so many people indulge and become popular so quickly?
Let’s learn about the chicken eating game!
#1 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
I believe that many people started to recognize PUBG from Tencent’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,
But did you know? PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is not officially named
His original and official name is Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds
Why is it called Playerunknown? In fact, just because this is the game ID of the game designer Brandon Green.
#2 The second father who eats chicken
In fact, there is another key character in the chicken game, that is, the Korean game producer “Kim Changhan”.
In 2015, his studio was officially acquired by Blue Hole.
He decided to build a new game for the company, and by chance he got in touch with Brandon Green
The two hit it off and started the research and development of the game “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds”.
#3 Unreal 4 Engine
In order to shorten the production cycle of the game, they chose Unreal Engine, which the Korean production team is better at, to make the game.
At that time, there were only 35 people in the team, but it only took 1 year to develop the chicken.
#4 Amazing sales
When the game was first released on Steam in beta form, the goal of Blue Hole was only 200,000 sales.
But unexpectedly, it exceeded 5 times the sales volume and 1 million copies in just 2 weeks.
6 million copies had been sold by 4 months
So Blue Hole had to delay the development of further games and went to maintain the server instead.
#5 Highest number of people online
PUBG not only has amazing sales, but also has an amazing number of online users.
The data in September 2017 showed that 1.3 million people were online at the same time while eating chicken games
Greatly surpassed Steam’s master game DOTA2!
#6 anchor credit
The fact that the chicken game can become popular so quickly is actually part of the credit of the anchors
Before the game was put on the shelves, the Blue Hole conducted a closed test
And this closed test is only open to 80,000 players, and the players participating are almost all famous game anchors.
After the closed test began, the search volume for eating chicken soared.
#7 profit method
The blue hole indicates that the future profitability of chicken games will also be like CSGO
The recharge is only for opening skins and decorations without attributes.
Allow players to experience a fairer game.
#8 Pan keeps bullets
The pan actually did not have the function of blocking bullets at first, just because the legend has been lingering among players
So the wrong is wrong, the blue hole is in the patch update
Really turn the pan into a pot with a bullet blocking function.
#9 human psychology
In fact, in a university study, it was found that 70% of college students had the illusion of murdering others and then cleverly escaping.
The game mode of eating chicken, the battle royale, can satisfy the hidden desire of human psychology.
So there is a basis for the chicken-eating game to become popular.
#10 The origin of eating chicken
Why is this game called eating chicken? In fact, it was because of the sentence after the game was won, “Good luck, eat chicken tonight.”
The original version is Winner winner Chicken Dinner.
The legend is because there is a game in the casino in Las Vegas, and you can only get 2 dollars if you win
Just can only buy chicken rice for $1.79 in the casino,
Winning money and eating chicken are thus linked together.
