'PUBG' roadmap includes new maps and more stable gameplay

This has been the story of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for a few months since developer PUBG Corp (a division of Bluehole) has slowed down on making their flagship game better. Another addition coming to the list of changes is an Emote System - a feature that will be coming to the Test Server "very soon". "We have come a long way over the past 2 years and have learned so much".

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.

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. UI optimisations, an improved inventory UX and additional preset controller configurations are also on the cards, as are improvements to the game's matchmaking. We are working towards that goal, and we have some changes coming that we hope will allow players to action the decisions they want to make, faster. The team intends to add more emotes throughout the year and possibly beyond. In addition, limb and vehicle bullet penetration systems should go live on the text servers later this year.

This new map, which seems to take the shape of three tropical islands, is created to be much smaller and much more compact than the previous two maps: Erangel and Miramar.

This is all part of a big expansion plan, which will see major content delivery cycle put in place that launches something new every two months. "We are continuing our daily work to combat cheaters, improve server stability and further optimize our servers and clients", wrote Greene in his post.

Rashford has now scored 12 goals and registered eight assists in 22 starts across all competitions in the 2017/18 campaign. Rashford scored a brace for the first time since his league debut for the club against Arsenal two years ago.

The addition of a second test server will give the development team more freedom to try unusual 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.

Some of these can be found in the new PUBG gallery below.

"[The map] 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", the post explains.

"Anyone that has PUBG...will be able to download the Miramar test server and provide us great feedback and hop into the desert map this Spring", explained Bihary.

"PUBG" now sports two fictional, sprawling arenas for players to scramble around in: 8x8km Soviet bloc style Erangel, and similarly sized desert expanse Miramar.
