Jason Vogt-Roberts has directed a live-action PUBG short, and it’s every bit as brilliant as that sounds.
When PUBG Corp. and Tencent were working together to bring PUBG to mobile, especially for the lucrative Chinese market, they released a live-action trailer. It’s slick, polished, and is surprisingly good.
It is, however, a bit serious. We have literally no idea what they’re saying, but it seems very straight-laced.
Thankfully, Jordan Vogt-Roberts – yes, the director of Kong: Skull Island, and the person attached to the rumoured Metal Gear Solid movie – has the answer: a live-action PUBG short.
It’s kinda great, isn’t it? It brings together all of the fun of PUBG as a spectator sport, with the feeling of chaos you only get from being right in the middle of it.
Technically the new live-action PUBG trailer is intended to advertise the launch of PUBG on PS4, but really, it’s just an excuse for Jordan Vogt-Robers to muck about, and we love it.
This isn’t Vogt-Roberts first video game project, either. In addition to the rumoured MGS movie, he also directed the live-action Destiny 2 – New Legends Will Rise trailer, which was also rather brilliant.
Here’s hoping the arch-nerd, keen gamer, and superb beard-wearer gets to be involved in
more all of the video game projects in future.
