New Weapons and Weather Effects Coming In This Week's 'PUBG' Update

PlayerUnknown's Battleground might be taking a bit of a backseat thanks to my current Destiny 2 addiction, but it doesn't mean there aren't incredibly exciting updates coming to the ultra-popular Early Access shooter that have me itching to dive back in. Until then however, vaulting will continue to be worked on internally.

In a blog post outlining the game's new update, the PUBG team have shed light on the progress of vaulting.

The screenshots, which you can check out below, are just a teaser for the game's next big update. A new weapon is also shipping with the new patch, but vaulting is nowhere to be seen at the moment. The first of these is a new town called Kameshki, the implementation of foggy weather effects, and a new semi-automatic rifle called the Mini-14.

"Two of the top four games on Steam are this new sort of burgeoning genre", said Eric Correll, "so we're pretty proud that we were sort of the first game to take a big commercial risk on it and articulate it and innovate, and we're looking forward to continuing to innovate and sort of build our brand of battle royale as fast-paced and action-packed. However, we must look into this with more detail to ensure that adding another game mode does not hurt the user experience for the player base as a whole".
