PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) dynamic weather system detailed

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a third-person battle royale being developed with the help of community feedback. Starting with absolutely no gear, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a flight to be the only one alive.

Today, PUBG Corp. detailed the dynamic weather system now available to players on PC. It's unclear when it'll hit Xbox One because that port is still early in development. The video showcases how dynamic weather significantly alters gameplay. For example, visibility might be slightly reduced when it's raining, but if there's fog, then it's impossible to see more than a few yards ahead. The types of weapons you pick up and the strategy you employ will have to vary depending on the weather conditions.

Sometimes, the weather might change rather drastically even during a match. This will require you to adopt a new approach on the fly. While dynamic weather seems like a simple addition, it definitely changes up gameplay. These are the types of additions PUBG needs to stay relevant. It's great to see the team adding such features.

We'll keep you posted as soon as dynamic weather comes to Xbox One. Hopefully the next patch will also bring frame rate improvements for owners. While significant leaps have been made since launch, there's still a lot of work to be done. Many gamers are flocking to experiences like Fortnite as a result of this.
