PUBG 2.0 could be a clean slate opportunity for PUBG Corp, allowing them to start fresh and create a new narrative in the PUBG franchise. While PUBG is known for having a certain style, it's not always a good thing.
It's been clear from the start that Fortnite, Blackout, and Apex Legends all launched a smoother product at launch. PUBG is in a great spot, but at launch, it was pretty ugly. No one cared because everyone was having too much fun, but once the competition grew, it was hard for fans and streamers to keep playing a broken game.
If PUBG Corp were to ever decide to launch a PUBG 2.0, much like Fortnite Chapter 2, here are three things we'd like to see.
PUBG 2.0: 3 Things We'd Like to See in a Reboot
3. Smaller Map With 50 Players
Apex Legends found something with smaller maps and a smaller player base each map.This caused for faster-paced games, quicker turnaround, and an overall feeling of accomplishment for many. PUBG Corp should do the same, by at least creating one map which gives players a different experience in PUBG. The core elements won't have to change, just the size.
2. Scuba Gear
You heard me! I want the ability to traverse the the lakes and streams of the PUBG universe and not die. PUBG has plenty of choke points in the game, and while boats are available, you can't always find one when you're in need. Allowing players to find gear which gives them the ability to breathe underwater for a period of time, and swim at a faster speed, should alter the end-game scenarios significantly.
1. Cross-Platform Parties
While PUBG Corp announced cross-platform play back in Season 4, it wasn't what everyone wanted. Instead of the ability to play with your PlayStation 4 friends in the same party, players could only compete against other platform. PUBG 2.0 should launch with the ability to party up with all platforms.
