PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a battle royale game focused on scavenging weapons and using stealth or other tactics to be the last person alive. The title has see unprecedented popularity on Steam and other platforms like the Xbox One over the past several months.
A few weeks ago, developer Bluehole announced a campaign called "Fix PUBG" which aims to make the game better for all players. One of the most requested features in the past has been a "training area". PUBG features a lot of mechanics and getting familiarized with the shooting, driving, and skydiving results in more control during matches.
Today, Bluehole did just that. PUBG's "Training Mode" is the best shooting range in the virtual world. According to the studio, "Training Mode lets 5-20 players... explore a brand new... map and practice all aspects of PUBG, from driving the game's various vehicles... to practicing parachute landings on scattered targets... There are even areas to practice vaulting, close-quarters combat, and... vehicle jumps."
It's great to see the developer listening to community feedback and implementing it in a timely manner. Hopefully even more fan-requested features will make their way into the game soon. As always, PC players will get access to the Training Mode before Xbox One players.
