PUBG Is Getting a New, Smaller Map, Among Other Goodies

PUBG Swamp

Additional player customisation options and a test server for upcoming patch releases are also in the offing. As well as new content, the team also plans to improve the game's existing visuals.

As for how gameplay is going to be tweaked, a new bullet penetration system is being introduced for cars and limbs.

Finally, PUBG Corp. dedicated itself to a routine schedule for major patches in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

"It will offer a higher player density and shorter matches and we want to get it into your hands early this time around so we can use your input to make it a great experience for everyone".

Today's biggest announcement is a new four-kilometer by four-kilometer map expected to hit the game's test servers in April.

She went on to add, "I hope my doll inspires young girls to believe that they can break boundaries in whatever they choose to do". As part of the #MoreRoleModels campaign, Barbie also shared a video on YouTube which features some of the women with their dolls.

There's nothing that beats the act of letting players mess with new features to find the unexpected fun in changes to the game, and it's very possible the experimental test server will lead to new ideas that neither the development team nor the community sees coming.

Other undetailed mentions went to things like server stability, anti-cheat protection, and alternate weather conditions. It would be a great way to spot bugs and balance issues in a controlled environment. "It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard". However, improvements are always welcome, and that is exactly what the PUBG Corporation decided.

Elsewhere, PUBG Corp. intends to increase the detail of vehicle sounds in the first half of 2018, as well as change the sound that the player produces while moving so that it corresponds to the equipment the player is wearing. "I can't play anymore [because] the FPS issue is too much", reads one negative response. "Thanks to the unbelievable feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction". "This year we plan to build on that foundation and really start to polish our features, squash the remaining bugs and expand the game even further".

The addition of a second test server will give the development team more freedom to try odd or risky ideas without disrupting the experience for players who want to seriously test new features or just play the standard version of the game.

Not content with selling more than 30 million copies on PC alone, PUBG creator Brendan Greene (aka PlayerUnknown) has taken the wraps off the game's 2018 roadmap and detailed plans for expanding and improving the experience. It's a good day for PUBG players.
