ntroducing INVEN Game Conference(IGC) Speaker Brendan “PLAYERUNKNOWN” Greene.
Brendan Greene, now Creative Director for Bluehole Ginno Games, started his career in games as a mod maker for the Arma series. He created the Battle Royale mod, and has now successfully established it as a new genre in gaming. Currently he is working on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.
Battle Royale is a unique genre. To survive, players must loot for items throughout the map, all the while trying to figure out the next move of other players. Everyone starts with nothing, making it the best genre to experience this unique type of “survival” game.
Creative Director Brendan Greene is a successful figure in the Arma modding community, and is now developing and creating his own version of the Battle Royale game-mode in “PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS,” within this quickly expanding genre.
