PUBG is moving to Unreal Engine 5 and will soon have destructible environments

PUBG is upgrading to Unreal engine 5

2024 is going to be a HUGE year for PUBG Battlegrounds. PUBG, the free-to-play Battle Royale is transitioning to Unreal Engine 5, and that shift will allow Krafton to make major changes to the game.

PUBG has been available on PC for six years now, and today it remains one of the most popular games on Steam. As part of the studio’s latest development update, the studio has promised stronger anti-cheat measures, destructible environments and more. A “User Generated Content” (UGC) service is also in the works.

When it comes to destructible environments, Krafton wants to add a new strategic element to PUBG Battlegrounds. Players will be able to destroy sections of buildings, create defensive barriers, and develop new avenues of attack. These changes will make PUBG more dynamic and unpredictable, forcing gamers to change they way they play the game.

Right now, it is unclear how the move to Unreal Engine 5 will change PUBG visually. The shift should allow PUBG to benefit from Unreal Engine 5’s Lumen and Nanite technologies, though it remains to be seen how Krafton will use the new engine.
