PUBG Adds Training Mode On PC Next Month

Try out weapons and practice skills on a new dedicated map.


A new mode is on the horizon for the PC version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. As part of its "Fix PUBG" initiative, the developer is planning to introduce a "fervently" requested feature to the battle royale game next month: a training mode.

In this new mode, players will be able to leisurely test out different vehicles and weapons, as well as practice the various skills they need to succeed at the game, from parachuting to vaulting. The mode supports five to 20 players and is set on a new, 2x2 km desert map that encompasses a shooting range, several vehicle tracks, a parkour course, and even an open water area for aquatic vehicles.

"Training Mode was designed from the very beginning to have a living map--with room to introduce new areas as well as ideas players want to see implemented in the future," Dave Osei, senior designer at PUBG Madison, wrote in a post on Steam. "We wanted to go beyond what players were asking for, so we didn't want the map to be just a shooting range, but an open, living map where players can test a variety of skills to their heart's content."

PUBG Corp. hasn't announced an exact date for when training mode will arrive in the game, but the developer says it is planning to launch it sometime in September. In the meantime, you can read more details about the proposed features and areas the mode will contain on Steam. You can also take a look at some screenshots of the new training mode map in the gallery above.

The "Fix PUBG" campaign was first announced earlier this month and will be a "months-long" initiative to improve the battle royale game by implementing common fan-requested features, bug fixes, quality-of-life improvements, and more. The campaign is set to run through October. You can learn more about the campaign on the Fix PUBG website.
