PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Fog Mechanic Receives New Screenshots

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Fog Mechanic Receives New Screenshots

Deadmau5 was forced to cut his PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds stream short last night due to a case of stream sniping.

The fog is set to come in the next patch though no matter what, but exact details on how it'll work throughout the games will likely come with the patch notes releasing tomorrow.

Today we've received some official details about PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds September update, revealing that an update is coming to the test servers as today, bringing plenty of new content with it, including the usual bug fixes and improvements too. Until then however, vaulting will continue to be worked on internally.

Players will need to rely on their other skills and senses if they want to perform well in the fog, and it should offer an interesting new change to the way the game is now played in that respect.

"And we think there's an incredible market for that, and it will, as Anthony said, I think there's so much interest around it you can't ignore it".

Aside from the update on vaulting, Bluehole also writes that this update addresses the problem of players going AFK to passively earn battle points, PUBG's in-game currency. Therefore, we are planning to test it for a longer period of time in early November.

A new town has also been snuck onto the game's sole (for now) map, just East of Stalber.

For a long time, even with PUBG increasing in popularity, it looked like KotK's player count was remaining solid.

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, "PlayerUnknown's Battleground" creator Brendan Greene revealed that he spoke to the folks behind "Sea of Thieves" in a recent Microsoft event, where they said the game is flawless, but the water "is not very good".

Finally, we're also getting a new weapon today in the Mini-14, a semi-automatic 5.56 marksman rifle which you can see above.
