Whether it's maps, emotes or incremental upgrades, PUBG will come out with both small improvements and massive content additions throughout the coming year. Future updates will also add achievements to PUBG, in-game Player Customization Options and improvements to audio quality and directional sound.

Another new map is also on the way later on.

The first new map is a 4x4 KM tropical themed island that is looking to offer an, "intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience".

PUBG are not ready to discuss new game modes yet which is a shame but they do mention that new vehicles are coming along with new weapons.

New (unspecified) vehicles are planned for the first half of 2018, and new weapons and attachments are expected to arrive this year as well-a screenshot of a Type 81 assault rifle is included in the roadmap. Even larger is an overhaul of the entire Third Person and First Person mode animation system to increase smoothness and reactiveness, including new animations for switching auto seats or entering a vehicle.

Combating cheats is still high on the agenda and PUBG says they are battling with this on daily basis and they are still working on improving server stability. "It is impossible to solve these problems once and for all, but our goal is to continuously improve in this regard". PlayerUnknown actually goes into detail on this, saying, "This will include animations for getting inside vehicles and changing seats while in the vehicle". Or better. Really, it depends on how much you enjoy being stressed out. In 2018, PUBG Corp. wants to further improve the live spectator tool but also integrate a replay system for use during matches.

"Seriously, we are not there yet, but we will be", the post starts by saying.

The PUBG team plans to further improve matchmaking for Duo and Squad modes, with the objective of supporting a fair and competitive environment.

Finally, Greene said that the team will introduce the PUBG Developer Portal, which will give access to the game's API to "support developers in the community by providing player and match data around gameplay performance". Many might have already noticed this prior to the release of PUBG Xbox patch #9.

PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene took to a blog post to outline his plans for 2018, showing off concept art for PUBG's third map.
