PUBG 2018 roadmap confirms new 4x4km map and emote system

PUBG 2018 roadmap confirms new 4x4km map and emote system

The next PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds map will take players to a jungle island, new concept art released yesterday confirmed.

About a month and a half ago, PUBG Corp admitted it had no clear roadmap for the future of its game.

It's on this test server that we'll get our first chance to play on the new maps. This new map will be available on PUBG's experimental test server starting next month. New vehicles and weapons are in-development, including the FN FAL.

Customization: We will add in-game Player Customization Options, emotes and more.

Just like any online game with a huge pool of players and enormous popularity, PUBG aims to eventually enter into eSports. Of special interest are reworked parachuting and unarmed melee combat systems, both of which have been heavily criticized.

California officials report hostages taken in 'active shooter situation' at veterans' home
An armored police vehicle, ambulances and several fire trucks were at the facility, which is home to about 1,000 residents. The site houses about 1,000 aging vets and is the largest veterans home in the United States, according to the department.

Unfortunately, Greene wouldn't say anything regarding actual details, nor would he reveal any of the new weapons, potential modes or vehicles coming to the game. Testing of the Achievements, in-game friends list and squad voice chat in the main menu are also ready to be tested. And server stability, connection speeds, and dealing with cheaters remains the studio's first priority in 2018. Improvements are also on the way to existing gameplay elements, including deeper gunplay mechanics accounting for limb and vehicle bullet penetration. No forward-facing changes appear to be planned, like a reworked leaderboard system or publically-shared MMR, but maintaining a competitive environment is clearly still in PUBG Corps.' periphery.

One of the big announcements for fans on consoles is that the new Miramar map is scheduled for release in early Spring.

PC players, we are aware of a detection logic related bug that occurred after today's anti-cheat update and is temporarily preventing some players from accessing our game. Certain topics commonly discussed by the community may have been absent from the roadmap, like balance and crates, but those were likely beyond the scope of the roadmap. Just days ago, another anti-cheat patch left many legitimate PUBG players banned from the game for several hours. And that kind of transparency in development is exactly what fans have wanted for a long time now from PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

That's okay for now since PUBG is one of the best-selling games ever and accomplished this in less than a year, and it is still one of the most popular games on the internet.
