PUBG reveals the 2018 roadmap - New map plans and more

PUBG Roadmap 2018

The first and most exciting new thing is confirmation of a new four-by-four KM island map, as well as another new eight-by-eight KM map.

"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". 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.

One of the big announcements for fans on consoles is that the new Miramar map is scheduled for release in early Spring.

Brendan Greene, the game's lead designer and director, wanted players to know that the developer plans to test out the changes before it goes live.

Finally, game stability is being targeted as well as anti-cheat methods and server security.

"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. 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". Some of the 2018 features planned for PC will also be making the jump, with emotes and more player customisation options on the way. Animations, parachuting, and bullet penetration are also facets of PUBG being worked on for improvements. "I can't play anymore [because] the FPS issue is too much", reads one negative response. Marked in the top left as a 4x4km concept, it is half the size of the previous two maps, seemingly without sacrificing the 100 player count, from what Greene says. "Thanks to the incredible feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction".

Patriots to acquire DT Shelton from Browns
And New England's defense was gashed for 164 yards on the ground in the Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. ESPN reporter Adam Schefter summarized the flurry of comings and goings in a tweet Saturday following the Shelton deal.

In the same vein, custom games will be further expanded to allow for more control and quality of life features like saving presets, with plans to expand access to a wider audience.

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.

More details about the upcoming PUBG new map experiences have been given, with a PUBG 4x4 map, Adriatic map, and Xbox Miramar release date all being shared in the PUBG Roadmap 2018 blog post.
