Here's a better look at PUBG's upcoming foggy weather

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds just tweeted some new screenshots that give us a foggy look at the new fog effects headed to the Early Access battle royale shooter, after teasing a single image earlier. Have a look above and below. The next update will also bring a new rifle and leaderboards for first-person servers, as well as the usual smattering of tweaks and bug-fixes.

I suppose my question is: do people really want to play PUBG in fog on a regular basis? I personally sort of hate fog. When it's foggy in Fallout 4, for example, I'll find the nearest bench, sit my butt down, and fast-forward time until it clears up. In a spooky horror game fog feels apropos, but in an action shooter I guess I'd rather be able to see as much as possible.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
