The casual battle royale game ‘Paul Guys’, which was released two years ago, is running back. The number of users is increasing due to free conversion, various events, and new updates.
On June 21, Paul Guys turned into a free play service. Earlier, Paul Guys was launched on August 4, 2020, causing a craze around the world. Because of the characteristics of a party game that is lightly enjoyed with casual graphics, it has established a unique position in the Battle Royale genre game. In particular, as creators and streamers focused on this novel game, word of mouth spread, while the unique attractions became popular.
Since the company has gained tremendous popularity since the beginning of its launch, there were problems such as unstable or slow updates.
In addition to PC and PS4, it supported cross play in PS5, switch, and Xbox from the 21st of last month, and has also increased accessibility. In addition, the number of users has increased significantly through this free transition. According to Epic Games, the number of players has surpassed 20 million in 48 hours after the transition to free service and ranked second in the Naver game lounge.
◆ Paul Guys’ inevitable charm
The Paul Guys is a multiplayer game where 60 players participate and play light games in the second to seven rounds until the last one remains. Starting with the Battleground, Battle Royale games such as Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone have been successful, and Paul Guys played with simple rules and cute graphics.
Games such as MMORPG and FPS have high barriers to entry. Paul Guys, on the other hand, is not difficult to introduce because of a relatively simple structure of moving, jumping, diving and catching. As a result, more and more families are enjoying the Paul Guys on weekends.
The unique sights are also fun. Creators and streamers’ left-handed dolmen and reactions provided another pleasure. At one time, Paul Guys surpassed Twitch Roll (LOL) viewership. Recently, many creators and streamers are flocking to the Paul Guys.
At the same time, Epic Games is increasing the inflow of users by paying up to 3,800 in-game currency Kudos at the same time as the free shift. In addition, it has introduced new rounds and obstacles such as ‘Speed Circuit’, ‘Blast Ball’, ‘Plump Floor’, and ‘Paul Guys Volleyball’, and adds a different fun with new costumes such as Golden Gladiator and Dragon.
