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

A new 4x4 km map: it's only a quarter of the size of the current PUBG maps, which should result in shorter rounds and a more frenetic experience. In a new blog post on the official PUBG website, game creator Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene laid out a development roadmap for what new features and content PUBG Corp. will add to the game in the coming months, including a new map and emote system.

Tweaks like new building textures and game stability should create a more distinct world that's also less laggy, while the addition of emotes will be flawless for pissing off enemies. Additionally, the developers will introduce new game modes to PUBG, although Greene says it's too early to share specifics on those just yet. It's still the Battle Royale game to play when considering realism, but how long will it take for EA or Activision to enter that ring? 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.

Finally, game stability is being targeted as well as anti-cheat methods and server security. Testing of the Achievements, in-game friends list and squad voice chat in the main menu are also ready to be tested.

"We have not forgotten about our core responsibility to our players-to provide a stable, smooth and secure environment for enjoying a great Battle Royale experience", said Greene. Smaller patches and hotfixes will continue to be released as needed, especially as the Experimental Test Server grows in use. "It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard".

New (unspecified) vehicles are planned for the first half of 2018, and new weapons and attachments are expected to arrive this year as well-a screenshot of a Type 81 assault rifle is included in the roadmap.

Another wildfire broke out in southwestern Kansas, burning 1,600 acres so far and forcing residents in the area to evacuate. Firefighters were battling a grassfire near Hays late Tuesday morning, and trying to keep it from moving into town.


An emote system is planned, accessible via a radial wheel, to allow players to point, wave, nod, clap, and taunt. "Thanks to the fantastic feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction".

In 2018, the entire TPP and FPP animation systems will be overhauled.

This year the PUBG Developer Portal will be opened up to the community which gives access to the PUBG Developer API allowing the community to track match data and allow the community to create new resources for the game.

It's still one of the most popular video games of all time, though, and PUBG Corp wants to make the game even bigger going forward. It's a good day for PUBG players.
