PUBG, or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, is a popular online multiplayer battle royale game. Recently, the game’s official website released the PUBG 2023 roadmap, which outlines the development plans for the game for the year. This article will provide an overview of the PUBG roadmap, including new features such as a new map, a clan system, and changes to the ranked gameplay.
PUBG 2023 Roadmap Overview
The PUBG 2023 roadmap announcement begins with a message of gratitude to the game’s players, who have supported the game for six years. The development team promises to continue listening to feedback and making improvements to the game. The roadmap then introduces the new features coming to PUBG in 2023.
New PUBG Map – Codenamed “Neon”
One of the most exciting addition will be a new map presently called (codenamed) “Neon.” The map is inspired by a unique location that combines modern and traditional elements. It will feature multiple areas, including a modern city full of skyscrapers and a traditional rural area.
According to the developers, exploring the map will be an adventure, with multiple transportation options, including ground, air, and water. The developers are also working on a new gameplay system for Neon that could change how the game is played, basically the meta.
Changes coming to ranked mode this year
Ranked, one of the core modes of PUBG will also see changes in 2023. The development team plans to apply all existing 8km maps to Ranked and gradually add new maps after stabilization. Items and features that were previously only available in Normal Match, such as the Blue Zone Grenade, Folded Shield, and Emergency Pickup, will be available in Ranked.
The PUBG team plans to introduce equipment and weapons that are commonly used in Normal Match to Ranked without significantly affecting the game’s balance. Finally, the rewards for Ranked will be enhanced, making it more attractive to players.
Clan System set to launch mid-year
Another long-awaited feature coming to PUBG in mid-2023 is the Clan system. The Clan system will bring in existing Clans from external sources, offering a greater sense of belonging and achievement for Clan members.
The core elements of the initial Clan system in PUBG are Clan tags and Clan plates, which will be displayed in various areas of the game. The developers plan to actively improve the Clan system based on player feedback.
