In a new update from the PUBG team, they have revealed that they are investigating adding PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds region based servers.
As a new update lands on the test servers, PUBG has also revealed that they are considering more restrictions on servers players end up playing on beyond the recently added ping based matchmaking system. This is something the community has been requesting for some time and could go a long way to making the game more enjoyable and remove frustrating language barriers.
This new system would allow players who are in a team to play on the server of a teammate in another region so players are not going to be locked out from servers when grouping. This sounds like a solid compromise and it will stop English speaking players being frustrated by Chinese players on the servers which has been the main complaint.
PUBG says they are looking to run a “limited test” on this new matchmaking system for research and analysis prior to rolling it out globally if successful.
In related news, a new test build has been deployed to test the game’s weapon skin system. The notes which have now been posted state that players can now select weapons skins, there’s new crates and of course bug fixes to test.
