Here’s what PUBG will need to do to pull players back from Fortnite

PUBG broke several Steam records and took the PC community by storm last year. However, Epic Games’ answer to it, Fortnite, has now found its way into the spotlight.

When discussing 2017’s biggest gaming hits, it’s impossible not to mention Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), a battle royale shooter that seemingly came out of nowhere. The game was a critical success, becoming one of Steam’s all time best-sellers, even managing to have over three million players online at one time. It dominated both Twitch and Mixer for quite a long time, too, and was even nominated for Game of the Year in the 2017 Game Awards.

However, as time has passed, the game’s popularity has begun to fall off. Its player base is by all definitions healthy, but ever since the release of Fortnite Battle Royale, a free-to-play battle royale game from Epic Games, many of PUBG’s fans have flocked to the new title. Here’s how PUBG can win them back.

That’s a little over 5,151 Earth days in which the robotic geologist has traversed a record 28 mi (45 km) across the surface of Mars to unlock the secrets of the planet’s history and geology – and it’s not done yet. To commemorate this anniversary, New Atlas has put together a gallery of some of the mission’s highlights from the past 14 years.

Respiratory-driven, non-surgical artificial larynx produces more human voice

A study has shown that a Pneumatic Artificial Larynx (PAL) device can return a more natural ...

In a move that could give a voice to the 300,000 people around the world who have had their larynx removed due to cancer, scientists at the MARCS Institute at Western Sydney University have tested a non-invasive artificial larynx and found it capable of generating a high-quality voice. Unlike existing prosthetics that rely on input from the nerves or muscles of the larynx, the Pneumatic Artificial Larynx (PAL) device uses the patient’s respiratory system and doesn’t need to be surgically implanted.
