Completely accurate battlegrounds that became the hit hilarious game, is ending a content update
Totally Accurate Battlegrounds, the battle royale game with beatboxing and playable cheese, has come to an end. After less than a year of free-to-play, developer Landfall announced that the low player count means the game is “unlikely” to receive any further content updates.
Totally Accurate Battlegrounds was released in 2018 as a parody of Landfall’s physics-based fighting game Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, but it quickly moved beyond mere gimmicks. Thanks to the fact that it was free for the first 100 hours of launch, it hit a peak concurrent player count of over 29,000 at launch. Those numbers dwindled quickly, but spiked again when the game went free in April 2021. It also has a “very positive” user rating of nearly 68,000 reviews on Steam — an enviable metric.
Unfortunately, the joke seems to be finally over. The decline in player numbers has been much slower as free-to-play has changed, but efforts to stem that trend haven’t worked.
“As you know, player numbers haven’t been great since this summer,” Landfall wrote on Steam. “The restart didn’t go as we had hoped. It was due to a number of different factors, for which we take full responsibility.”
“Initially, we had another studio focused on the F2P aspects of the game, like the in-game store, so we could spend time creating new and exciting content. This didn’t work out and we had to remake the store ourselves. We won’t be able to add new content until a few months after the re-release. If we can add more content and fixes early on, player retention may be better. This, along with anti-cheat issues, performance issues, and AMD bugs, is also having an impact on player numbers negative impact.”
The developers also considered options such as adding bots to turn things around, but said “the development sins we committed in 2018” — perhaps suggesting that corners may have been cut during the weeks-long development process — meant bringing in the main The new features will be very difficult. With games no longer paying their own costs, studios are turning to other things.
The good news for players — there are hundreds of players in the game right now — is that while no new content will appear, the servers will remain running for the time being, and there will still be “occasional server maintenance” and anti-cheat efforts.
“We know this is disappointing, and it’s for us as well. TABG has always been a game that shouldn’t have been there,” Landfall wrote. “It started out as an April Fool’s joke that we didn’t plan to update, and ended up being a passion project that we love so much.”
