The highly anticipated first-person restricted servers are heading to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds soon, as the game's creator, Brendan Greene - 'PlayerUnknown' himself - confirmed the news today on Twitter.
Currently, the battle royale game allows players to utilize both third-person and first-person view modes when playing. The third-person perspective is largely used when roaming the map and looking for targets, as players can easily look around corners or above walls for any threats. Meanwhile, the first-person perspective is essential for accurately taking down targets.
Servers that are restricted to the first-person view mode have been a highly requested feature by the community since the game's inception, and will essentially make Battlegrounds a much more hardcore experience.
The first-person servers will only be available on solo and duo playlists in EU and NA regions at first, in order to weed out any bugs, with other regions following suit later. The developer's community manager, Sammie Kang, chimed in on Twitter confirming that the update will also include an FOV slider.
The first-person restricted servers will be included in the next monthly update for the game, which shouldn't be too far away, as the July update has yet to drop.
