New Playerunknown's Battlegrounds Map to be Released in First Half of 2018

Watch The Walking Dead's Chandler Riggs Stream PUBG on Xbox One X, and Win Prizes

Aside from the new ping-based matchmaking system on its way, the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers have stated that they ended up delaying development of some new features as they had shifted their priorities towards combating cheating in the game. So far we've had woodland and desert biomes... could the next setting be the urban jungle that players have been dreaming about ever since PUBG's rise to fame and fortune? What exactly the developer has planned is still unknown, but we do know that Bluehole intends to show off a third map for the game, which should add more variety to the battle royale title. However, the latest news on that front did mention that most cheaters that have been banned are from China.

PUBG is a bit lacking in the cosmetics department in some ways, so this snazzy new selection of clothing should spice up your experience in the game considerably.

That's not to say that development on new features has completely stalled; they've teased the idea that a new map is under development.

In a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds update, vehicles have been nerfed, and various improvements and bug fixes have been made.

'Unlike the method considered earlier, we are going to divide the matching pool depending on ping.

In the future matchmaking will start to give preference to users with a low ping. The goal is to improve overall play experience for the community "by splitting the matching pool rather than by restricting connection depending on ping". The first trials for this, which could prove pretty terminal for those playing in regions other than their own, will begin this week.

While not as thrilling as a new map, it also shared some details about a change coming to limit high-ping players from wrecking a session. Although no specific date has been disclosed for it.
