PUBG has "much work to do" on esports

Microsoft and PUBG Corp have revealed the Spring 2018 Roadmap for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which among other fairly significant additions, includes the implementation of achievements (presumably indicating that the game could soon be leaving Game Preview) and the introduction of the desert-based Miramar map.

There's an emote system on the way, which is set to hit test servers "very soon". As well as new content, the team also plans to improve the game's existing visuals.

The first new map is a 4x4 KM tropical themed island that is looking to offer an, "intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience".

PUBG are not ready to discuss new game modes yet which is a shame but they do mention that new vehicles are coming along with new weapons. What could this mean? New vehicles and weapons are in-development, including the FN FAL.


New animations are going to be introduced to both third-person and first-person game modes, including but not limited to entering vehicles and clambering over walls. And server stability, connection speeds, and dealing with cheaters remains the studio's first priority in 2018. We've worked hard over the past 2 years to build a good foundation for the most realistic Battle Royale experience out there. 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. "This year we want to further improve the live spectator tool, but also integrate a replay system for spectators to use during live matches". "Thanks to the incredible feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction".

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.

As of right now, this is all that Greene and PUBG Corp. were willing to talk about, but even more content and plans are in the pipeline, so the road map could be added as 2018 wears on.

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.
