PUBG was never meant to have a story. The earliest iteration of the game was significantly rougher than what you see now and the game was basically just a big map with a lot of glitching going on. There was no real rhyme or reason and honestly, it was fine that way. Not everything had to be a mystery. But PUBG Corp has other plans and for the game’s fourth season they released a video that might tell us why we’re stuck in history’s worst island holiday:
Well, there you go. A little kid got stuck on the island of Erangel during a massive conflict and after apparently being the sole survivor, he did the only logical thing that you can do after such a traumatic experience. Yes, he became a puppetmaster who sends people to the island en masse to murder each other until only one person remains while monitoring everyone on a giant screen.
Nobody said it had to be elegant. I’m still waiting for the lore video explaining why we’re doing this for chicken dinners.
