PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting first-person servers. They’ll be added to solo and duo games in the EU and NA regions in the next monthly update, then rolled out elsewhere after a bit of polish.
Get into one of 2017's biggest gaming sensations with our PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds guide.
The news comes via Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene himself, via Twitter:
Lead community manager Sammie Kang, also known – apparently willingly – as ‘poopieQueen’, confirms that the first-person mode will have an FOV slider.
The PUBG subreddit is pretty ecstatic about the news, as first-person servers have been high on their wish-list for some time now. The ability to swivel the camera 360 degrees around your character in third-person gives players much more awareness of their surroundings, taking some of the risk and intensity out of tactics like camping or situations like room-clearing.
Seems PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is about to get even more intense.
