PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a 2017 online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole.

In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game's map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was released for Microsoft Windows via Steam's early access beta program in March 2017, with a full release on December 20, 2017. The game was also released by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox One via its Xbox Game Preview program that same month and officially released in September 2018.

A free-to-play mobile version for Android and iOS was released in 2018, in addition to a port for the PlayStation 4. Battlegrounds is one of the best-selling and most-played video games of all time, selling over fifty million copies worldwide by June 2018, with over 400 million players in total when including its free-to-play mobile version.
