PUBG Will Feature a Map Two Square Kilometers in Size.
The new training mode is somewhat akin to Fortnite’s Playground Mode. It allows players to learn the mechanics of the game in an objective-free sandbox. Features on the map include a shooting range, a race track to test various vehicles, as well as places to practice parachute drops. On top of this, there are areas for vaulting and close-range combat.
In its latest Steam Post, the company stated one of its goals in addressing PUBG (part of its FIX PUBG initiative) was to add a shooting range. In the post, Valor had this to say:
“The PUBG Training Mode lets 5-20 players (solo queue with matchmaking) explore a brand new 2×2 km map and practice all aspects of PUBG, from driving the game’s various vehicles around the island’s race tracks, to practicing parachute landings on scattered targets, to mastering the perfect peek shot. There are even areas to practice vaulting, close-quarters combat, and of course, sweet vehicle jumps.”
There will be incremental range targets. One at 800m, another at 400m, and a special 1k range target. Additionally, their will be free targets. These will placed either as standing targets, left and right moving targets, or indoor targets. The indoor targets will be either stationary or moving.
Furthermore, there will be a parachute practice area. A throwables range and melee range have been included. There is a designated parkour area for all your stunting needs. Also, equipment tables featuring melee weapons, guns, attachments, gear, ammo, and throwable will allow players to get a feel for the different weapons. The Vehicle tracks, too, will be differentiated based on vehicle uses. There will be a long track, a racing track, an off-road track, and stunt ramps.
Though all of these features are subject to change, the launch of the map is targeted for September.
