PUBG Announce New Smaller Map and Emotes To Challenge Fortnite Popularity

  • PUBG Update is Randomly Banning Players

According to a recent blog post, the small 4x4km island map will be tested on the game's test server for all to try out and will eventually be available on the game's live servers depending on feedback. 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. There is also yet another new map coming to the game that sounds like it's going to hit the experimental test server first.

"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".

The new map is created to give a "much more intense" and "faster paced" Battle Royale experience because it will offer a higher player density and shorter matches.

Where Fortnite has significant updates on the content front, including fun new modes, seemingly every week, PUBG still barely runs on Xbox One and hasn't done anything of note on PC since launching out of early access. Even its recent launch out of early access and going free-to-play today can not save H1Z1 so in response to all of this, Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene finally took to community to lay out plans for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in 2018 and it's about damn time.

Beyond that there's going to be a bigger 8x8km map further down the line, also coming first to the new experimental test server, and there's also a huge range of features and changes planned, including an overhauled animation system, improvements to physics, combat, vehicles, and the world in general. And server stability, connection speeds, and dealing with cheaters remains the studio's first priority in 2018. It would be a great way to spot bugs and balance issues in a controlled environment.

Waffle House worker captured in act of kindness
The photo of Williams and the man was shared on Facebook by Laura Wolf , who was touched by the young woman's gesture. That's when Wolf snapped the photo, which has since gone viral on social media. "I got my own day", Williams said.

Sound effects for various elements within the game world such as player movement, vehicle sounds, environmental noises, and more are subject to improvement as well.

"Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be", said Greene. "We truly want to build a great foundation for Battle Royale esports, and while we have seen some great events already using our game, we have much work to do, especially with the observing side of things".

We knew a little beforehand, but this week PUBG Corp. and Brendan Greene shared their vision for the game in 2018 and outlined their plans in more detail.

Nevertheless, PUBG players now have a document with which to hold PUBG Corp. accountable and PUBG Corp. has made public their plans to keep fans happy.
