PUBG Update Climbing and Vaulting Comes to Test Servers

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds also known as PUBG has been the most successful battle royale game on Steam. With at least 10 million copies sold, it’s just going to continue to get bigger from here on out. Bluehole Inc. finally made the announcement that climbing and vaulting are coming to the test servers this Wednesday before its official release date. Let’s take a look!

The first time that PlayerUnknown and Bluehole announced that vaulting and climbing were on its way was during E3. Now it’s finally here! These new animations will definitely change the way players go about situations in various strategic ways. Why is this a huge change? If you haven’t played PUBG before, there are high fences and walls that can leave players vulnerable or at an advantage. Instead of having to run around these obstacles, these animations can significantly change plays of defeating your opponents. While the game isn’t completely perfect yet, Bluehole mentioned that there will be at least two more patches before the PC 1.0 launch that is coming at the end of the year.

The development team highly encourages players to try out the new patch before these features go live with lengthy testing of three days. Their goals is to constantly maintain the bug fixes and have the game as optimized as possible. As of late, the servers and players have been encountering numerous cheaters online also. Bluehole mentioned that they are doing everything in their power to decrease the amount of cheaters. The developer wrote that “[they are using] all resources available to detect and impose penalties on users who use cheats.” So PUBG players, don’t be discouraged!

Other than that, during the PAX Aus panel, PlayerUnknown himself a.k.a. Brendan Greene, did announce that he would like to have cross-play available between the PC and Xbox One versions. Unfortunately, there will be no single-player campaign mode for this multiplayer game.
