PUBG Modding Important for New Content, Binoculars Teased
The players will have a large say in determining what new features should be released for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) in the future.
While hosting a panel at Gamescom 2017, creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene stated that he has always supported the modding community and will continue to do so for his own game. In that light, he hopes to see a thriving modding aspect for PUBG that becomes the source for additional content such as new game modes and maps.
However, there are certain limitations due to the way the game is coded. Producing single-player content is nearly impossible in the current state. It is why there is no tutorial mode at present. The developer is not shutting down ideas in the face of the restrictions. It will probably improve PUBG sometime in the future for additional support. For the time being, though, focus is solely on polishing and updating the game for its official release later this year.
When asked about any further tactical implementations in the game, the developer confirmed interest in the addition of binoculars. Such suggestions will always be appreciated by Bluehole Studio, and the community should relay its feedback whenever it can.
There is still no official word on the PlayStation 4 version, which is speculated to arrive next year. Microsoft was announced as the publisher for the Xbox One version earlier this week, following the confirmation for the platform during the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 2017) in June. Maybe we will get to hear more about the third platform once the game is done with the other two.
PUBG has been in early access on Steam for nearly five months. It has officially sold more than eight million copies during this period.
