PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is finally giving players the training map they've been asking for. Only it won't be just a regular training mode as it will come with race tracks to test vehicles, parkour maps, CQC areas, and even a parachute landing area.
In a new blog update on Steam, PUBG Corp. outlined the new Training Mode coming to the game in September. The Mode allows for 5-20 players to explore a 2x2 km map which includes several amenities to hone your skills.
There is a race track for vehicles, a water way to practice aqua vehicles, a parachute landing target, and various target ranges. There is a target range for 800m Range, 400m Range, a 1k Range target as well as standing free targets, moving targets to practice peek shots, and targets inside buildings.
There are also extra areas for melee practice, throwable range, parkour area, and ramps to practice jumps on vehicles (both landbased and waterbased). It's a full set of practice areas for all kinds of different skills.
"We wanted to go beyond what players were asking for, so we didn't want the map to be just a shooting range, but an open, living map where players can test a variety of skills to their heart's content," says PUBG senior designer Dave Osei. He also says that the map is living and can host new ranges and other features depending on player interest.
The Training Mode is part of the Fix PUBG campaign PUBG Corp. launched earlier this month in hopes of earning back consumer trust after a rocky few months. PUBG, which kickstarted the battle royale phase, has been dealing with technical issues and rampant cheating as rival games like Fortnite Battle Royale have become bigger.
PUBG is still the hardcore battle royale game it was designed to be, and PUBG Corp. is adding more content and fixes each week. Check out our PUBG guide if you're eager to jump in for a chicken dinner.
