PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Announces Ping-Based Matchmaking, Teases New Map

PUBG Battlegrounds BLUEHOLEPUBG Battlegrounds is getting a new update on PC

Excited to discover a whole new map? Instead, it will prioritise low-ping players when filling up servers during matchmaking. The studio is introducing a pair of new loot boxes filled with fresh cosmetic items, and it is testing a method of matchmaking that should improve the experience for people with fast pings.

H1Z1 continued to remain popular despite PUBG's success though, but the real nail in the coffin seems to have arrived now, with the release of free to play battle royale game Fortnite, which was immediately available on PC, PS4 and Xbox.

Cheating has become a massive problem in PUBG, so much so that BattleEye, the game's current anti-cheat client, has reported that it has banned more than 2.5 million players through the end of January with that rate increasing throughout February.

Among many features, one of the major that is being focused on by the developers is the Ping-based Matchmaking system.

PUBG PC Update 6 patch notes have been released for the 4.1 GB patch now rolling out to the Test Server.

We'll learn more next month when "the team will reveal what you can expect from us in the first half of 2018 in terms of our development and new content plans which, by the way, include a new map". "Also, due to other reasons, we have not been able to show you the team's development roadmap for 2018".

A new game update released today fixes a number of bugs and introduces some changes to the UI.

"Unlike the method considered earlier, we are going to divide the matching pool depending on ping", said a new blog post from PUBG Corp. Preparations are underway to test this method in some regions, with first trials planned to start this week. The matchmaking pool will be divided according to a player's ping. Although no specific date has been disclosed for it.
