Tutorial mode will not come to PUBG anytime soon, but PlayerUnknown teases that binoculars might
Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene teased some potential features for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds during a Q&A at his gamescom developer talk today.
Attendees asked whether tactical implementations, such as binoculars, will be added to the game, and Greene confirmed that it's something he would look into.
Q&A attendees also wanted to know if a tutorial mode will be implemented in the future, but Greene shut that idea down. Apparently the game is coded in such a way that single-player content is nearly impossible to do at this time, and Greene ruled out anything in the short-term future. For now, he says polishing and updating the game after release is his main priority.
Green said he hopes the community and modders can become the source for much additional content, like smaller maps and new game modes. He’s always been supportive of the modding community, and has said that he hopes someone will create great mods, which could propel them to fame.
As for players hoping to see PUBG on PS4 in the future, Greene stressed that his team were only focusing on the PC and Xbox One version of the game, which was announced at E3.
With PUBG’s first esports event going on at gamescom, Greene said he didn't want to rush into esports, and preferred to work with companies like ESL to experiment with different formats to see what worked best.
Greene is keen on a slow approach to any esports scene surrounding the game. He wants the game to be popular five to 10 years after its release and wants to build it up gradually.
The game is set to leave early access sometime later this year.
