The latest and greatest gaming feud, Bluehole Studios' PUBG and Epic Games' Fortnite, is taking on a new level of competition.

Recently Play Battlegrounds announced on Twitter the fact they are working on a 4x4km island map. Even larger is an overhaul of the entire Third Person and First Person mode animation system to increase smoothness and reactiveness, including new animations for switching auto seats or entering a vehicle. Improving on the graphics, the art team is reportedly working on all around improvements to make the game more aesthetically pleasing.

Updates to Vehicle Penetration: To promote a greater sense of realism, we will be applying bullet penetration to our vehicle system. Our current model can be viewed as a vehicles body having a life bar that must be reduced before the driver can be damaged.

The PC roadmap is a lot further ahead and includes plans for two new maps. From here on, major patches are planned to be released on a 2-month schedule, with the first such patch planned for March.

"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", the official blog post stated.

Trump says announcement on steel and aluminum tariffs coming Thursday
Railroad tracks run past the blast furnaces of the now-closed Bethlehem Steel mill in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, April 21, 2016. Representatives from the steel and aluminum industries have already begun convening in Washington ahead of an announcement.

Threads began popping up on Reddit and other social media outlets shortly after the update went live. Each of these major updates will bring changes to specific systems and/or introduce new content.

At least one new weapon is coming to PUBG this year...

Speaking of the new experimental servers, Bluehole say that one of the first new things getting tested will be a map. The cramped space will provide quicker matches with a more intense experience due to "a higher player density".

This new map, which seems to take the shape of three tropical islands, is created to be much smaller and much more compact than the previous two maps: Erangel and Miramar.

This will be followed by another new map, which will be twice the size of the one mentioned above. It looks to return to the bumpy terrain more akin to original map, Erangel than the flat desert environment throughout Miramar, giving plenty of vantage spots. Additional player customisation options and a test server for upcoming patch releases are also in the offing.
