If you just finished watching Chernobyl and are in the mood for grim Soviet-era concrete buildings, take a look at PUBG’s Erangel map remake, which has been teased along with a fair bit of new content.
In a June update video, PUBG executive producer and head of development TS Jang explained the game’s upcoming content will be “released through themed seasons moving forward”. Along with a new version of the Survivor Pass (basically a paid battle pass) with each season, PUBG Corp will now debut new content and features “under the banner of one overall theme”. Hopefully this will provide a more unified and straightforward update schedule.
The flagship feature of Season 4 (which begins this month) appears to be the Erangel map remake. Officially announced back in March following several leaks, this is the first real look we’ve had at the visual improvements. From watching the trailer, I can’t say it’s going to completely remove PUBG’s asset-store vibes, but it’s certainly giving the map a different look.
