PUBG Latest Update Increases Blue Zone Damage Over Time.
PUBG latest update will increase the damage caused to players outside the blue zone.
PlayerUnkown’s BattleGrounds has been around for a few months and has become the most played game on steam beating Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. For those who still aren’t familiar with PUBG, it’s a game where 100 players drop into an 8km x 8km battleground and fight to be the last one standing. But the thing is that there is a blue zone that shrinks with time. Players have to stay in this zone or else they will lose health over time. In this PUBG latest update, the devs make it more challenging. For those who used to stay out of blue zone and fed on med kits and painkillers to backstab the players rushing into blue zone might change their tactics now because the damage over time will be increased outside the blue zone. Your health will deplete faster than before and you will be forced to stay in the marked area if you want the chicken dinner.
We have received a lot of feedback asking for improvement of the blue zone. We have decided to adjust the blue zone damage to encourage engagement inside of the play zone. From this new update, you will be able to focus more on the immediate, close-ranged skirmishes inside the play zone, instead of dealing with enemies outside of the play zone during the mid to late phases of the game. We would love to hear the responses regarding the changes from all members of our community once you’ve tried it in the test servers.
The update also brings some bug fixes where the bullets would completely ignore the armour along with some optimization and other improvements. The game is still in what you can say beta phase. The devs are working hard on the optimization and bringing improvements to the game before the official launch.
In 2017 PUBG came and started the era of Battle Royale mode games. Seeing the success heights reached by PUBG, Epic Games announced a free Fortnite: Battle Royale mode. The mode, being free, attracted gamers around the world and this way Fortnite: Battle Royale went off to a successful launch with 1 Million players on the launch day.
There is also a new game battle royale game in development at a UK studio codenamed Project X that will offer 400 Players Battle Royale on a huge 12km x 12km map.
Not only that, there has also been a new battle royale mode developed for CS:GO players named Go 4 The Kill having almost similar features as that of PUBG.
