PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has offered up a look at the upcoming vaulting and manteling mechanic. This will allow players to leap and climb over walls, instead of looking at them in impotence, cursing their short legs and general lack of athleticism. The video was released on the personal YouTube channel of Marek 'Tooner' Krasowski, the lead gameplay programmer for Battlegrounds.
Walls, fences, and more fall to the awesome prowess of the player. Looking at the video, it's clear that the vaulting and manteling will provide a new verticality to the game, especially in areas with plenty of structures to leap over and climb on. The work-in-progress video seems to sport environmental objects that are not in the current map. It's unknown whether those objects will be added to Battlegrounds' only map, or whether they'll be a part of the new desert map.
To give you an idea of vaulting's potential release date, Krasowski previously showed a work-in-progress video of the motorbike mid-March. The motorbike joined the game in late May. So, if we're lucky, maybe we'll see vaulting in-game in October.
