Development Roadmap Delayed to March, New Ping-Matching in the Works

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to get third map within the next four months
The Militia crate is basically exactly what you think it is, serving up some military clothing realness like the "Miramar frontiersman" outfit and the "Erangel resistance force" outfit.
Best of all though, it is free. You can check out a few examples of the new items in the image below. Which bundle will you be getting? You're now much less likely to be stuck with a premium crate you have to pay to open if you'd like to avoid spending real money on the game.
In the meantime, a new update is arriving on PC test servers ahead of a full launch.
This follows on from slightly disappointing news that the recently announced developer roadmap has been delayed.
The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Steam page has been updated with a post to inform the community that the development roadmap for 2018 promised for this month has been put off to March. It was initially unveiled past year and will based around an area around the Adriatic Sea.
Apparently, PUBG Corp's ongoing crackdown against cheaters has been the reason behind the delays to new content coming out for Battlegrounds, to the point where the studio has had to sideline important updates to the game's long-standing ping issues that fans have been forever complaining about. Unfortunately, the plan never came to fruition because of the ongoing fight against cheaters, which has accounted for numerous developer's resources in the last few months. Development on the game itself has been halted as the team has moved towards improving its anti-cheat systems.
That's down to one of PUBG's biggest problems: Cheaters.
The team is also plugging away at a system to "divide the matching pool depending on ping". PUBG Corp also say that matchmaking will now be divided depending on ping, meaning users with lower pings will be prioritised during matchmaking. Preparations are underway to test this method in some regions, with first trials planned to start this week. Although no specific date has been disclosed for it.
