PUBG reveals the 2018 roadmap - New map plans and more

PUBG Will Adopt Some Fortnite Design Choices in 2018 to Keep Competitive

PUBG Update is Randomly Banning Players

What is changing is the game itself, and developers PUBG Corp have detailed their plans for the year in a new development roadmap for 2018. A new emote system will soon become available when the test servers go live. New vehicles and new weapon attachments are also on deck, and should show up sometime this year as well.

"It's a much smaller map and should give you all a much more intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience", Greene wrote in the blog post.

In addition to the above, PUBG Corp is rolling out new game modes for the battle royale title, but is unable to share details, with new vehicles and weapons joining the fray, too.

A few months after it left beta, PUBG announces its 2018 update roadmap meant to improve the quality of gameplay for the battle royale shooter.

Animations are also going to be improved with an overhaul of the game's TPP and FPP animation systems which they say will make them "smoother and more reactive to the environment".

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. Just as it sounds, this interface wheel will allow players to choose one of many emotes that they can use to interact with their opponents and teammates in various - and quick - ways. Therefore, the game studio plans to rework the shooter's replay system and possibly add a live spectator tool, which is intended for the commentators during a match. "Thanks to the awesome feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction. 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". 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. We can also look forward to a PUBG Developer API, which "will support developers in the community by providing player and match data around gameplay performance".

Just like any online game with a huge pool of players and enormous popularity, PUBG aims to eventually enter into eSports.
