PUBG Corp. has revealed that Sanhok, the upcoming third map for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, will not use skill-based matchmaking.
According to the developer, MMR-based matchmaking will not be used when queuing for the map so it can offer “a truly chaotic, different gaming experience.” The developer notes that career stats will still be recorded when playing on the map, but performance will not affect a player’s MMR.
“We want Sanhok to feel like a truly chaotic, different gaming experience. For that reason, there will be no MMR-based matchmaking when you play on Sanhok. Although career stats will still be recorded, your performance on Sanhok won’t affect your MMR at all,” the developer explains. “When you drop into a game, you’ll be battling it out against both the world’s best players and… well… let’s just say players with ‘lots of potential for growth.'”
Sanhok is scheduled to go live June 22nd on PC, with an Xbox One release to follow later this summer.
