Krafton uploads documentary film about its hit game PUBG
On Tuesday, game developer Krafton uploaded "Mysteries Unknown: Birth of the Battlegrounds," a documentary film about how its hit first-person shooting game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) was created, on PUBG's official YouTube channel.
"Mysteries Unknown: Birth of the Battlegrounds" stars actor Jonathan Frakes, who is best known for his role in the "Star Trek" series, to explain the story behind Crafton's greatest hit game. Frakes will interview numerous people who were involved in creating PUBG, as well as experts, to dig down into how the game came into being.
The documentary signals the launch of the PUBG universe, as it has been uploaded prior to the release of "Ground Zero," a short film based on the game's storyline.
The nine-minute short film will be released on Saturday via PUBG's YouTube channel and star actor Ma Dong-seok as its lead. A trailer for "Ground Zero" will be featured toward the end of "Mysteries Unknown: Birth of the Battlegrounds."
Other content from the PUBG universe will also be reflected in the game. For instance, the location in which "Ground Zero" takes place will be added as a new map in PUBG. The map is set in Korea and will be available from July 7 on PCs and July 15 on consoles after an update.
