For a long time, the community of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds asked for the possibility that the game may also include a single player campaign in the near future. Recently, Brendan Greene of Bluehole has spoken about the subject.
Greene suggests that the studio has planned several improvements for PUBG, but the single player campaign is not among the expected additions. There are currently no plans to add a Story Mode and it will hardly be there in the future, as adding such content could distort the concept at the base of the game.
In a GameInformer Podcast, Brendan Greene has declared that there won’t be a single player campaign in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds:
“I think lore is important for creating it, but we don’t have any serious lore there, if we were going to do a single-player campaign then maybe the history of the island would come into it. Originally I thought, because we have this Russian island and there’s evidence of a military occupation there, it’d be fun to have a Watch Dogs kind of game based on the island where it was a bustling island with military occupation and you and five friends or four friends can play a single kind of multiplayer campaign, but set in the ’70s,” Greene said.
“I thought that would be a cool era to set something kind of like Watch Dogs. Well, not Watch Dogs, but where you set out to capture each town on the island and take over the island from the military occupation. That was my concept of it. No plans for it yet, That’s a big dream. I kind of just had the idea for it,” Greene further communicated.
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is the 2017 best-selling video game (over eight million copies sold) and recently the title has surpassed DOTA 2 in the most popular games on Steam.
