The next few months of development on console will include improvements to optimizations, new content additions, as well as refinements to the overall console experience. From here on, major patches are planned to be released on a 2-month schedule, with the first such patch planned for March.
The game's test servers will be a part of that polish, with Miramar becoming an essential first step on Xbox. Once the issues have been addressed, gamers can expect the upgrades to arrive on the official game servers shortly thereafter.
This year the PUBG Developer Portal will be opened up to the community which gives access to the PUBG Developer API allowing the community to track match data and allow the community to create new resources for the game. As indicated before, players and their feedback will be taken into consideration in order to come up with the final product.
Fortnite is quite different in a number of ways, including being available on both PS4 and Xbox (and mobiles soon too), but one of the big things is the size of the map, and thus the pace is much faster than its PC only competitor. "As with the smaller map coming to the Experimental Test Servers, we want to get this into your hands early in its development, so you can help us make the gameplay great on this new map". The announcement revealed that another 8×8km map is in the works, as well. That's coming to the standard test server.
Animations are also going to be improved with an overhaul of the game's TPP and FPP animation systems which they say will make them "smoother and more reactive to the environment". The developers felt that the current 3D model movements for different situations need to be more realistic.
Not all content will be entirely new; much of what's planned for 2018 will be reworked content now in the game, some of which has been long-requested by the PUBG player base. Therefore, the game studio plans to rework the shooter's replay system and possibly add a live spectator tool, which is intended for the commentators during a match.
Elsewhere, PUBG Corp. intends to increase the detail of vehicle sounds in the first half of 2018, as well as change the sound that the player produces while moving so that it corresponds to the equipment the player is wearing.
That's okay for now since PUBG is one of the best-selling games ever and accomplished this in less than a year, and it is still one of the most popular games on the internet.
