PUBG gets a roadmap for 2018, includes plans for two new maps

PUBG UPDATE New Roadmap 2018 release news from Battlegrounds game creator

The latest and greatest gaming feud, Bluehole Studios' PUBG and Epic Games' Fortnite, is taking on a new level of competition. UI optimisations, an improved inventory UX and additional preset controller configurations are also on the cards, as are improvements to the game's matchmaking.

Teases of other major content drops were made, including new game modes outside of the traditional battle royale mode, new vehicles and weapons.

"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". When our update is released, players that are skillful with their shots, can pierce vehicle doors and panels, damaging enemy players and ensuring that threat is constant even for those behind the wheel. For this reason, in the last few weeks Fornite's popularity has skyrocketed while also earning mainstream buzz - positive buzz - something PUBG is starting to losing a little steam on for the first time in its young life.

Turkey announces time for end of military operation in Afrin
Turkey and Iraqi central government in Baghdad will carry out a joint operation against Kurdish militants in northern Iraq. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that a siege of Afrin's main city would begin after Jinderes is taken.

"This year we want to involve our players in the ongoing development of PUBG even more than before, and to aid with this we plan to open an Experimental Test Server so we can get your valuable feedback on our feature/content development cycle sooner and for you to have a real impact on how our game changes and develops going forward". "Smaller updates between the major ones will also continue throughout the year", Greene wrote. However, Bihary says the team is planning dedicated Miramar celebration nights to funnel in new players.

Some of these can be found in the new PUBG gallery below.

The new map is not what many players hoped it would be as a significant portion of the playerbase is waiting for a winter themed map. "It will offer a higher player density and shorter matches and we want to get it into your hands early this time around so we can use your input to make it a great experience for everyone", explains Greene.

Collin Sexton hits buzzer-beating floater to save Alabama in SEC Tournament
I thought the zone was effective. "At the start of the second half, they came down and flipped the table on us really quickly". However, Sexton capped off a tremendous game when he connected on the game-winner to snap the Tide's five-game losing streak.

Notably, as they look to stabilise the experience further, a new experimental test server is set to be implemented.

This will be followed by another new map, which will be twice the size of the one mentioned above. It will be an 8x8km map, like the current Erangel and Miramar maps.

The succeeding map will go back to the default larger area and will go through the test servers first just like the one before it.

Trans-Pacific Partnership signed
Other countries have to do the same, and at least half of the TPP members must ratify the agreement before it comes into force. Canada and Mexico are exempted from the controversial measure that will go into effect on Friday next week.
