After almost 5 years in the gaming industry, Rules of Survival is officially closing its doors to the public. The 2017 multiplayer online battle royale game is among the first games of its genre. It was released about the same time as other Battle Royale games such as PUBG (Player Unknowns’ Battlegrounds) and Fortnite.

To be honest, it was one of the best battle royale games ever released. With a fan base of more than 280 million worldwide, the game was supposed to be as big as other games similar to it. Sadly, they were not able to bounce back because of cheats, hacks, and bugs that the developers were not able to fix.

On June 27, both the PC and Mobile versions of the game will automatically shut down. It will no longer be able to provide the content everybody used to love.
