PUBG To Get Ping Based Matchmaking

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to get third map within the next four months

The new Fever crate will feature retro-styled cosmetic items, while the Frontier crate will focus on more slightly more traditional combat gear. The former still require Early Bird keys to open while the latter has a 40 percent chance of dropping when Battle Points (BP) are spent on crates.

Best of all though, it is free. Do you think this will sate the players demanding that China be region-locked? Which bundle will you be getting?

Assuming you are really lucky, mind.

In the meantime, a new update is arriving on PC test servers ahead of a full launch.

The developers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds from Bluehole Studio have chose to share their plans for the game via Steam.

That new map was announced past year and is believed to be modelled after an area around the Adriatic Sea.

First of all, a new map is on development and it will probably be out before July.

Upcoming content to battle royale behemoth Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has been delayed as developer PUBG Corp puts effort into stopping cheaters.

There has been a lot of debate surrounding PUBG's anti-cheat measures and while third-party help from BattlEye has amounted to over 1 million cheaters being permanently booted from the game in January alone, there's nothing stopping them from buying another account. The team is expecting to improve the overall play experience by splitting the matching pool rather than restricting connection depending on ping.

Among many features, one of the major that is being focused on by the developers is the Ping-based Matchmaking system. Hopefully, the anti-cheating measures do their job and PUBG's devs can concentrate on giving us what we really want: moar ways to win chicken dinners pls.

"We are going to divide the matching pool depending on ping".

Also expected to roll out soon are changes to matchmaking that will sort and prioritize users by ping.

The team also shares what we can expect with the next update. "Specific dates will be shared when ready".
