The PUBG development team have announced they are almost ready to release yet another popularly requested feature to the game - allowing for map selection!
A devblog released late last week announced the feature and gave some more details about it, saying "Selection is something that players all over the world have continuously asked for. We take your feedback extremely seriously, but we also want to be thoughtful about how we implement changes to PUBG. And we knew that map selection posed a couple of problems we needed to seriously consider".
They were keen to stress why this feature had not been included before now and some of their apprehentions of introducing it.
"The first problem: Would adding map selection cause serious increases in matchmaking times for the various servers and modes?"
Ultimately, after considering a wide array of players' feedback, they have created a version of map selection that they feel is unlikely to cause issues for matchmaking - but they have committed to monitoring it!
The basic explanation of how it works is:
- You can select the maps you want to play with a click.
- If you don’t want to play a map, simply unselect it.
- If you’ve selected more than one map, the game will randomly pick one for you each time you start a match.
Work on this feature is almost complete and it is planned to be release it shortly after it's been implemented on the test server.
