PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the survival game taking the world by storm, is getting two big additions in upcoming updates, according to the game's developers Bluehole. Servers hosting this mode will appropriately be referred to as "hardcore servers" in-game. Once Bluehole polishes the first-person system, it should expand into the other regions.
"Dedicated first-person servers will take some time as it requires a lot of work from all teams, [it's] not as easy as just flipping a switch". So far, we know that the new game mode is coming, as well as the FOV sliders, but we've yet to see any of the new weapons or vehicles that are usually included. Fans have been clamoring for first person-only servers, as playing the game in third person allows players to hide behind cover and peek. Third-person provides a super-wide perspective for moving around outdoors, while first-person is critical for lining up a shot indoors or around obstacles. Instead, they'll have to gauge the sound of your footsteps or guess your next plan of action.
The new mode will release sometime in August, and will be rolled out for solo and duo game modes on European and North American servers first.
