PUBG Corp has detailed a new update to PUBG, one which adds in the long-requested feature of custom matches. Custom matches can be created in the PUBG Test Server, though there are some restrictions, and a possible future paywall.
Speaking in a blog post, the PUBG team revealed that while Custom matches are now free for everyone in the PUBG Test Server, it’s possible that it will charge for the feature later down the line:
Creating custom matches won’t have an associated cost during this phase. However, due to the extremely large amount of resources required to allow custom games to be available to all players, we may change this in the future to ensure everything runs smoothly and the system remains sustainable long-term.
For now at least, all players with access to the PUBG Test Server can get involved for free, and are now able to customize everything from circle behaviour, item/vehicle spawn rates, to loadouts and more. To ensure a stable service, only 10,000 custom matches can run concurrently, and PUBG Corp has warned that if the demand for custom matches is unexpectedly high, then players should expect server issues.
Currently, the custom match feature is only available in the PUBG Test Server, but is expected to move to live servers once the system is proven to be stable. Players have four mode types to work with initially: War Mode, Normal Mode, Zombie Mode, and Esports Mode. From there though they can tweak settings and team structure, and then push the match live for either private or public servers.
