PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds


 

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegroundsmost recent PC test for its upcoming third map, Sanhok, seemingly added a new mystery to the game in the form of golden treasure chests.

Several players have posted images of the chests on Reddit, and the chests have been discovered in several locations throughout the new, smaller-sized, jungle-themed map.

So far, no one has been able to interact with the chests, though some Reddit comments have pointed out that the chests share a strong resemblance to Fortnite Battle Royale’s golden chests, which offer players somewhat higher-level items and consumables when opened.

It seems possible that PUBG plans on adding a similar mechanic with these golden chests. If so, the next major update for the game might even add these golden chests to all three of the game’s current maps—Sanhok, Miramar, and Erangel. But, given the game’s history, it seems even more likely that these chests will feature in some kind of limited-time event mode.

PUBG is no stranger to dropping unexpected content in its test servers and then turning that content into the foundation for limited-time modes.

Let’s review the history.

First, PUBG added a flare gun that called down specialized supply drops to test servers, then made that flare gun the central feature of a limited-time game mode.

Following that, PUBG added a new deathmatch-style game mode, War, to custom game servers before turning it into another limited-time mode.

Finally, dataminers discovered an armored UAZ hidden in one of the test server updates’ game files, and that vehicle soon after became the centerpiece of yet another limited-time mode.

Looking back at all this, it seems pretty clear that the golden chests might be part of an upcoming Event mode. If that’s the case, then we can expect a quick turnaround from test server to actual event, maybe even when Sanhok launches in full, which we’re expecting to happen within the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, PUBG Mobile just received the game’s second map, Miramar, while the Xbox One version is expecting to get the desert-themed map sometime this month.

What does PUBG’s new golden chest mystery mean?

It seems like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is taking a page out of Fortnite's book.
