We often get asked the following question – Can PUBG be played offline? Whilst it may be nice to play offline on Battlegrounds, it isn’t currently a feature in the game.
Can PUBG Be Played Offline? – The Answer
So far, there are no methods available for you to play PUBG offline. All game modes on Battlegrounds require you to be connected to the internet and play with other people on an online server.
PUBG Corp. hasn’t yet said anything about whether there would be an offline mode, but it’s possible that it may be created for tournaments and custom games. If PUBG eSports ever kicks off, tournament organizers may prefer to run their own offline servers instead of forcing players to be routed through the PUBG servers.
In most other eSports titles, tournament organizers are able to create offline servers for players to join. A good example of this would be Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
For the time being, however, an offline mode for PUBG is out of the question. The development team has many other features to work on first, including optimizations to the game performance and the server performance.
