Dust off that controller and kiss goodbye to your keyboard.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds console players that use third party devices like Xim to play with a keyboard and mouse won’t be able to do so forever.
When asked whether there were any plans to curb console players’ use of keyboard and mouse in the game, PUBG’s community coordinator Dan “RoboDanjal” tweeted that they have been “gathering in-game information regarding third party device usage over the past few months.
“Although usage of these devices is statistically very low, fair gameplay is core to our experience, and we will be communicating our plan to curb the use of these devices soon.”
While this may be encouraging to hear, it’s not clear how long it will take to gather the relevant data and implement changes. The same response was posted in the PUBG forums back in February, so presumably this is a work in progress for now.
PUBG recently announced its one year anniversary, giving away the Year One – SCAR L skin to players who log in before May 1.
Players can also participate in the testing of the new 4x4km island map, Codename: Savage, with a second wave of keys being given away right here. Savage is the smallest map to date, designed for a fast-paced and intense battle royale experience.
Testing concludes on April 5.
