The battlefield of PlayerUnknown has spent the last few weeks showing its incoming desert map, triggering new weapons and vehicles, and running test servers before its next full release. The latter is a priority, so the Bluehole developer suggests, however, there is a "relatively strong demand" for more cosmetic items, similar to the special box for items from Gamescom Invitational that was launched in August.
In a question and answer session at the G-Star Global Game Exhibition in Korea, the CEO of PUBG Corp. and leading game designer, Changhan Kim, recognized a greater interest in cosmetics, however, the booties suggested never They will be profitable in nature.
"As you already know, we will never add anything that affects the game," says Kim. "However, there is a relatively strong demand for cosmetic items, as official release is our top priority, we plan to add new items after that."
Kim also discusses how he and his colleagues are tackling the game trap, and the possibility of a tutorial training mode.
Of the latter, Kim says: "Frankly, I think that's where the charm of PUBG lies: Our thinking was:" There is no practice in life! It should be difficult! " However, many players are requesting a tutorial mode or a firing range, and we believe that this could be useful for some players, so we will start designing a plan to develop that function after launch. official ".
Elsewhere, Kim turns his attention to the process of him and his team when selecting and designing weapons.
"We added new weapons to complement the deficiencies in the given weapon alignment, taking into account the purpose and characteristics of each weapon." Of course, the weapon alignment also reflects our individual preferences, says Kim. "Whether popular or specific, there are people with different preferences here, so many interesting weapons are being considered, some weapons are discarded in the selection process if they are too disruptive in terms of equilibrium according to specific internal standards."
] "We are aware that many Korean players really want K2 added as a new weapon. It is definitely on our list of weapons to be considered, but since it can overlap with other existing weapons in terms of its purpose and characteristics, we approach this addition from a design diversification perspective.
