PUBG reveals the 2018 roadmap - New map plans and more

PUBG Update is Randomly Banning Players PUBG is getting a new map, vehicles, weapons, and emotes in 2018
Edmund Robinson | 11 March, 2018, 03:00

The first new map is a 4x4 KM tropical themed island that is looking to offer an, "intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience".

Apart from that, the developer is planning on adding new Game Modes, new vehicles, and new weapons to bring some added variety. PC players on the Experimental Test Server will get the earliest access to the new environments, so if you have a PC, get the Test Servers downloaded!

Updates to Vehicle Penetration: To promote a greater sense of realism, we will be applying bullet penetration to our vehicle system. Coming in at nearly a quarter of the size of Erangel, this map promises "higher player density and shorter matches" with a faster-paced, more chaotic experience.

The new PUBG map will challenge this difference head on, being only 4×4 kilometers - around a third of the size of the traditional map Erangel.

The Game Preview of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One has been a huge success in terms of sales, but has taken a lot of criticism for its poor performance, and the way that the release of patches has slowed to a crawl in the last couple of months.

Beyond that there's going to be a bigger 8x8km map further down the line, also coming first to the new experimental test server, and there's also a huge range of features and changes planned, including an overhauled animation system, improvements to physics, combat, vehicles, and the world in general.




Finally, game stability is being targeted as well as anti-cheat methods and server security. In this respect, Bluehole noted "it is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard". Gun sounds will also be tweaked in the first half of 2018 to be more distinct.

"Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be", said Greene.

Meanwhile, competitor Epic Games is touting more new modes, another new season of content and a mobile version of Fortnite which will support cross-play with PC and PS4 versions of the game. "Thanks to the wonderful feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction".

As of right now, this is all that Greene and PUBG Corp. were willing to talk about, but even more content and plans are in the pipeline, so the road map could be added as 2018 wears on.

Nevertheless, PUBG players now have a document with which to hold PUBG Corp. accountable and PUBG Corp. has made public their plans to keep fans happy.
