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

PUBG UPDATE New Roadmap 2018 release news from Battlegrounds game creator

"As with the smaller map coming to the Experimental Test Servers, we want to get this into your hands early in its development, so you can help us make the gameplay great on this new map". The PUBG development team laid out their plans for 2018 and it looks like they are trying to copy some of the more successful elements of what Fortnite brings to the increasingly-competitive battle royale. As well as new content, the team also plans to improve the game's existing visuals. There is also yet another new map coming to the game that sounds like it's going to hit the experimental test server first.

If all that wasn't enough, PUBG Corp is also making changes to the game's ballistics systems, with limb and vehicle bullet penetration being tweaked in the name of realism. 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.

Before Fortnite came around in October of previous year, PUBG had risen to the top of the Battle Royale genre, having dethroned H1Z1: King of The Kill, but Fortnite has firmly cemented themselves as the top game in recent months.

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.

Other various improvements include Achievements, an in-game friends list, and squad voice chat in the main menu. It would be a great way to spot bugs and balance issues in a controlled environment.

Combating cheats is still high on the agenda and PUBG says they are battling with this on daily basis and they are still working on improving server stability. "It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard".

A longer 2-3 week cycle between patches is being touted, ensuring that PUBG Corp can consistently release "well tested improvements", optimisations, new content additions and more.

"Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be", said Greene. The matches will be more intense and faster. This will let community developers have access to information from the game, including match and player data.

PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene took to a blog post to outline his plans for 2018, showing off concept art for PUBG's third map. Just days ago, another anti-cheat patch left many legitimate PUBG players banned from the game for several hours.
