PUBG: PlayerUnknown Reddit AMA Reveals Bluehole’s Plans for the Game
Brendan Greene, also known as PLAYERUNKNOWN, has recently hosted a PlayerUnknown Reddit AMA (As Me Anything). Players of the game took this opportunity to ask the creator himself all the questions they have about the game. As one question after another is answered, more details and future plans for the game were also revealed.
Here are some of the most important ones we discovered:
In terms of their plans for additional maps, Greene has confirmed that they definitely have more maps coming in the future. Currently in development is the upcoming desert map. They’re also planning on developing an Adriatic-themed map. Aside from these two mentioned, there are no other maps being planned to be developed.
Complaints Regarding Volume
One Reddit user has enumerated several Subreddits that discuss the noisy game environment. Apparently, the sounds of the game’s environment seems louder than everything else (i.e. airplane landing, rain, parachuting, among others). One user even claimed he’s been suffering from “noise fatigue”. Users have been wondering why Bluehole has been silent on the said feedback.
Greene went on to answer that they have definitely heard the players’ feedback, and that they are currently rebalancing the game’s audio levels, and are hoping to push these to live servers soon.“It is not just as simple as turning down certain sounds as we have to ensure all sounds are balanced,” he explained.
Greene has mentioned that he has seen a nighttime map internally, and has mentioned that players will be surprised at how good it looks. He also added that it will take a lot of time to finish working on it so he can’t say an ETA as of yet.
Other DetailsIn general, here are the other updates mentioned by Greene during the PlayerUnknown Reddit AMA:
- More servers will be opened in other regions, however they still don’t have an ETA as to when it will happen
- A penetration system for the water is currently being worked on. Apparently, those who come inside the water can be invincible as bullets don’t penetrate it much.
- Bicycles are possible to be added in the future. More vehicles will also be released. A new campervan has actually been revealed on Twitter:
- When asked what he personally wants to see in the game, Greene mentioned that he wanted the game to have a single-player campaign. The island would be a perfect setting for an interesting story, however they don’t have the time, or resources to work on it at the moment.
