Battlegrounds Getting First-Person Only Servers

The next update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is going to be a big one. On Twitter, Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene announced that they will be coming in PUBG's next monthly update.

Of course, BattleGrounds is not a first person game, it is a third person game- that said, its FOV is narrower than most third person titles, which leads to it having the same kind of effect on players that first person games can often have. Instead of hiding behind cover and scoping an area as many players do, first person mode will be sure to keep players on edge even more than the game does already.

First person in PUBG is a little more daunting than third person as the view point constrains what you can see, naturally. These first-person servers will only be available in the Solo and Duo games for America and Europe, but "will expand to other regions" once everything has been fine-tuned.

The July update will also include the oft-requested FOV slider for the game.

He said: "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". He also notes that you'll never be forced to play hardcore servers, as they'll be entirely separate from standard servers, complete with their own queue.
