PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds continues sprinting into unknown territory when it comes to how big this game will get, with PUBG hitting a new peak 1.96 million users on Steam over the last 24 hours.

Even at the time of writing this at 11:46PM PST (California) there were 1.07 million players, which completely eclipses Dota 2 and its 375,220 current players, and 716,717 peak players in the last 24 hours. CS:GO is being utterly thrashed by PUBG in terms of peak and current players, with 159,439 current players and a peak of 608,748 players in the last 24 hours.

But you know what? I'm about to jump into the game myself, with three other friends at my office for a LAN. This is why there's 1.96 million peak players, it's freaking addictive and I'm feeling really hungry, and for some reason I feel like chicken.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
