In the July update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, first-person only servers were introduced to the game. At the time, this feature was reserved for those playing in solo or duo games but now, the intense first-person experience is being rolled out to squad games too, so full four-man teams can get in on the action.
This news follows several other major Battlegrounds updates, including the addition of an FOV slider and loot crates, which are making players a ton of money on the Steam marketplace right now.
With first-person only servers now rolled out across all game modes, it will be interesting to see how this affects the player divide going forward. Personally, I think first-person only is the best way to play this game but third-person servers also have a good set of advantages that some players might not want to give up.
KitGuru Says: Battlegrounds is one of my favourite multiplayer games at the moment, especially with a full squad. I’ll be looking forward to some first-person only squad games this weekend. How many of you have tried Battlegrounds’ first-person only mode already? Do you prefer it, or will you be sticking with unrestricted servers?
