PUBG's battle royale game is about to get a lot more intense

  • PUBG is getting a new map, vehicles, weapons, and emotes in 2018

First up is a brand new 4×4 kilometer map, a quarter of the size of Erangel and Miramar, designed for faster, action-packed rounds.

The new PUBG 4x4 map promises a "higher player density" and "shorter matches".

Notably, as they look to stabilise the experience further, a new experimental test server is set to be implemented.

PUBG Corp. will offer new emotes throughout the year, but the testing of the emote wheel is the first step in adding this new system to the game. Even larger is an overhaul of the entire Third Person and First Person mode animation system to increase smoothness and reactiveness, including new animations for switching auto seats or entering a vehicle. What could this mean?

"It is also our aim to continually upgrade the game's aesthetic side, and today we want to share some before/after images showing work the art team has been doing to improve the way houses are rendered in the game".

Stability, optimization, and security are still paramount to PUBG Corp., with the battle to combat cheaters and hackers still going on every day. It would be a great way to spot bugs and balance issues in a controlled environment. 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".

Sound effects for various elements within the game world such as player movement, vehicle sounds, environmental noises, and more are subject to improvement as well.

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.

"Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be". "We truly want to build a great foundation for Battle Royale esports, and while we have seen some great events already using our game, we have much work to do, especially with the observing side of things". "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".

In a very long post which didn't reveal much in terms of specifics, Greene unveiled the "PUBG 2018 Roadmap" which included hints of new modes, new vehicles, new weapons, and even emotes - something popular in Fortnite and other live-service games like Destiny. Just days ago, another anti-cheat patch left many legitimate PUBG players banned from the game for several hours.
