This game is essentially a hunger games style battle royal. You jump out of an airplane over an island along with 99 other people and you have to be the last one standing. There are houses filled with guns, ammo, health kits, bandages, frying pans, body armor, and much more to help you survive. There are also vehicles to help you get around. As the game goes on there will be blue smoke around the edges of the island that slowly creeps in, forcing people to get closer together so the match doesn't go on forever.

The game modes allow you to play solo, with 2 player teams, 3 player teams, and 4 player teams. This does NOT mean if you go solo you could be up against a bunch of 4 player teams. Each game mode is separate from each other.

Overall the game is very intense and exhilarating. You are always looking around to make sure you don't get shot from behind. I believe its the 3rd most played game on steam right now. And luckily for all of you, the game works on controller using steam Big Picture mode!

Let me know if you guys are interested! It's 30 bucks on steam.

I have some friends (who aren't on CPT :O ) that were playing this last Friday night when I was home alone and bored. I got on Twitch for the first time ever and watched their games. It looked like a lot of fun...until you die. Games are long and it would suck if you die within the first couple of minutes. Whenever one of my buddies would die he would switch to Rocket League or Dota and wait for the round to finish.

A lot of the streamers I watch on Twitch have started playing this. Pretty interesting as long as they aren't in a team and die right away.

Yeah one bonus is if you are playing solo and die, you can jump right back to the main menu and queue up for another game. Same goes if your whole team dies.

Luckily like i said the rounds arent super long due to the gas slowly creeping in, so even if you die on a team you wont have to wait more than 20 minutes or so :)

If this was $15 I think it would be a no brainer, but $30 seems steep for the way I would play the game. - team and never solo.

Agreed. I think the price is too high right now.

I'll buy this. Podcast talked it up a lot, but the host has gone 4 hours without a single kill. That's sucky.
