PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to finally add map selection
PUBG Corporation is finally going to add map selection to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and the developer has released a plan for when and how it’s going to be implemented. The ability to choose which map they want to play is something that PUBG fans have been clamoring for since the release of multiple maps, like Miramar, have been added to the game. And starting soon, the first iteration of the selection system will be hitting the test server.
The basic idea is that players will select any number of maps by highlighting them when they first enter the matchmaking process. Any maps not selected will be left out of the pool for that player, and players will be matched according to map selections.
And for those concerned over if this will affect matchmaking density or outcomes, the developer is confident that this change will not have a negative impact. “We analyzed tens of millions of matches and sorted the data by server, mode and time to make sure map selection wouldn’t break the game for anyone,” the update insists.
The new system could change but they are going to fire it onto the test server soon to see what people think according to the update. The developer also released a teaser image that shows the system in action, you can find that below.
PUBG players can expect the map select to hit test servers very soon, although no firm date has been released. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC and in Game Preview on Xbox One. Map selection debuts first on PC.
