PUBG reveals the 2018 roadmap - New map plans and more

PUBG Roadmap 2018 Details New Smaller Map Emotes & More

KitGuru Says: Testing new anti-cheat systems must be hard for PUBG Corp, particularly when considering the sheer size of the player base and the potential problems that can ensue. This will be available to trial soon on the game's Test Server.

One of the largest updates in the post is a new map that is considerably smaller than anything the game's had before. 2018 will also see the introduction of Game Modes to PUBG, ala Fortnite, which will no doubt add interesting modifiers to matches as to stave off the feeling of repetition or same-ness. 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. 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. Achievements, an in-game friends list, and in-game squad voice chat are also on the roadmap. These animations will also extend to the parachute system, which is set to be completely overhauled at some point. And server stability, connection speeds, and dealing with cheaters remains the studio's first priority in 2018. "It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard".

Animations are also going to be improved with an overhaul of the game's TPP and FPP animation systems which they say will make them "smoother and more reactive to the environment".

It sounds as if the standard server will be the place to go if you want the most stable version of the game possible, while the existing test server will be the best hangout for players who want to play with features that are still being perfected before they're released into the main game.

PUBG Roadmap 2018
PUBG Update is Randomly Banning Players

"Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be", said Greene. "We also want to improve how the character moves to allow our 3D replay to deliver some truly great content".

PUBG's next map is going to about half the size as the current in-game island.

Custom game modes will be expanded.

Finally, Greene said that the team will introduce the PUBG Developer Portal, which will give access to the game's API to "support developers in the community by providing player and match data around gameplay performance". Many players have reported being banned for no good reason, with the algorithms behind the detection to blame.
