In videogames, April Fool’s Day pranks are available two predominant flavours: there are the gag bulletins, by which a developer says it’s going to do one thing foolish; after which there are the joke video games – the place a developer truly does one thing extraordinarily foolish. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has opted for the latter this 12 months, including a entire new arcade recreation to its battle royale’s menu display screen. But you’ll should hurry, as a result of this new mode is simply round for a couple of minutes.
PlayerOmnom’s Battlegrounds is an arcade cupboard you’ll discover within the PUBG menu between now and April 12. It’s a top-down 2D arcade shooter carried out in pleasant pixel artwork, impressed by pixel artist Alexey Garkushin. In it, you’ll should journey throughout PUBG’s acquainted locales, combating chickens which have grow to be completely jacked with pure rage over their use as a reward for successful squads.
As if including a wholly new recreation to PUBG wasn’t sufficient, the developer has gone as far as to invent each an in-universe story for POBG in addition to a fictional real-world origin for the sport itself.
You can test it out on this enjoyable little mockumentary:
