E3 2017: A Lot Of New Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Features Are In The Works

The PC Gaming Show is happening now, and Brendan Greene from developer Bluehole just detailed some big updates coming to Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. This includes vaulting, more weather effects, and new weapons.

One of the most significant additions coming to the game is the ability to vault over objects. This will likely make fans very happy, as current mechanics make it extremely difficult to get over fences, rocks, and other small obstacles. As a result, it can be frustrating to navigate through the map. The update will add a new, specific mechanic for jumping or vaulting over small objects.

In addition, Greene announced that the studio is making new weather effects for the game. Right now, the map features only clear skies or downpour; there will soon be sunset and fog variants, as well. Greene said that these weather effects will influence gameplay. For example, since fog cuts down on visibility, sniping will be harder.

Other notable additions coming include replays and the OTS 7.62mm bullpup rifle. The replay system will allow you to rewatch an entire game with a free camera; the rifle is meant for short- to medium-range encounters.

Finally, Greene mentioned some longer-term content updates in the works. Two new maps are in development: one in the desert ruins of Peru, the other in the snowy Adriatic region. In addition, mod support will come, although it’s still a ways off.

Greene didn’t provide a timeframe for these updates. You can watch his entire presentation from the show above. Yesterday, Greene shared another piece of Battlegrounds news: it’s coming to Xbox One this year with special enhancements for Xbox One X.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
