Brendan Greene talks PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds via Reddit AMA
Brendan Greene, PlayerUnknown himself, took on a Reddit AMA recently, sifting through a pile of questions and taking the time to answer a few for the fans. The session spanned a number of aspects of PUBG, mostly in vague macro terms, touching on single-player, ranked play, improved destruction and more.
Gamers intimidated by online play might have something to look forward to, as Greene has indicated that a single-player component for PUBG is something he’d like to see happen. It’s hardly anything close to a commitment to the idea, but at least it’s not off the table. Increased destruction seems more likely, but is taxing on the system. “I would like to add more destruction,” said Greene, “but it is very expensive on server performance so we have to be careful how much we add.”
Elsewhere, people pushed for info on rankings and progression. “We also want to add a character leveling system and weapon skill systems (that doesn’t effect gameplay) and other progression systems,” said Greene. “We’ll have more info on these once we get a chance to fully plan them out!”
A night-time mode is a very real possibility too, and it’s something Greene has seen running in prototype form.
There’s more to be excavated from the lengthy AMA, so dig in.
