PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has been the surprise breakout hit of 2017. The Battle Royale inspired shooter pits players against one another in a fight to the death, with the sole survivor being crowned the winner of a chicken dinner (millennial, eh?)
Anyway, the big problem you’ll face in PUBG is navigating around the hostile 8kmx8km maps that the developer has set up for. Mostly this is down to the fact that there are players trying to shoot you from all over the place, but it certainly isn’t helped by the fact that you’re a sitting duck when you check your map screen.
Jack, Moov2’s resident Wordpress expert, had an idea of how to solve this. He suggested an extended experience for mobile devices that showed the current map, pinpointed your location and showed how close you were to the edge of the safe zone (which, if you’re outside) you die.
That way, players could keep their field of vision open while looking quickly at a companion map to avoid being snuck up on. Handy tactical stuff.
