What is changing is the game itself, and developers PUBG Corp have detailed their plans for the year in a new development roadmap for 2018. Along with that, new vehicles and game modes are planned for sometime this year and an emote system will be brought into the game. A new eight-kilometer by eight-kilometer map has also been confirmed, though further details weren't provided. There will be new vehicle, environmental and player-centric sounds added, too, like audio for vehicles that skid, rain on vehicle roofs and additional breathing sounds for players depending on whether they're running, aiming down a rifle sight or just holding their breath. What could this mean? Even larger is an overhaul of the entire Third Person and First Person mode animation system to increase smoothness and reactiveness, including new animations for switching auto seats or entering a vehicle.
As is to be expected, new vehicles and weapons are also in the works, and the blog teased a new 7.62 weapon that will be coming "soon" to the test server.
Other features PUBG Corp. has in the works include an Achievements system, an in-game friends list, and the ability to voice chat with your squad in the main menu.
Finally, game stability is being targeted as well as anti-cheat methods and server security.

"We have not forgotten about our core responsibility to our players-to provide a stable, smooth and secure environment for enjoying a great Battle Royale experience", said Greene. "It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard". Greene says the system will be regularly expanded with new emotes throughout the year. "Thanks to the incredible feedback coming from the player community and professional scene we believe we're moving in the right direction".
For competitive PUBG players, the team is already working on improving the current MMR ranking system and matchmaking. We can also look forward to a PUBG Developer API, which "will support developers in the community by providing player and match data around gameplay performance". At half the size of the other maps, the PUBG 4x4 map will force players closer together, meaning more gunfights and less downtime (i.e. less running about and doing nothing!).
Just like any online game with a huge pool of players and enormous popularity, PUBG aims to eventually enter into eSports.
