PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will get a FOV slider and a first-person mode

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will get a FOV slider and a first-person mode”

First up will be an FOV (field-of-view) slider, which will give players greater control over their view in-game, and following that will be the addition of dedicated first-person view servers.

The first-person restricted servers will be included in the next monthly update for the game, which shouldn't be too far away, as the July update has yet to drop.

The next update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is going to be a big one. "Dedicated first-person servers will take some time as it requires a lot of work from all teams, [it's] not as easy as just flipping a switch", said Brendan "Playerunknown" Greene on the official PUBG Discord. The existence of the FOV slider is directly tied to the game's first-person view, prompting many to think ahead to dedicated first-person mode servers. He said the update will be rolled out first to North America and Europe solo and duo games, but would eventually make its way to the rest of the world after more "polish".

First person in PUBG is a little more daunting than third person as the view point constrains what you can see, naturally. Developer Bluehole will use the feedback they receive from NA and European Union players to polish the game mode before rolling it out to squad play and other regional servers.
