Battlegrounds has been making huge waves, building a big fanbase and it’s still only in its early stages. There’s a lot of updates and changes on the horizon and the game will certainly continue to evolve and meld as time goes on, but one big addition that’s been hinted at is a single player campaign mode.
It’s not something that’s actively in development or that has had a lot of planning put into it yet, but PLAYERUNKNOWN wants to do this eventually, and that’s good enough for us. There’s no timeframe for it, but if there’s a lot of demand we can only imagine that will help move it along sooner.
“I thought that would be a cool era to set something kind of like Watch Dogs. Well, not Watch Dogs, but where you set out to capture each town on the island and take over the island from the military occupation. That was my concept of it…. no plans for it yet, [but] that’s my big dream.” reveals PLAYERUNKNOWN.
This would also provide a good opportunity for new players to get the hang of things before being put right into the thick of it instead of running around like chickens with t heir heads cut off for the first few matches online.
“Originally I thought, because we have this Russian island and there’s evidence of a military occupation there,” he explains, “Where it’s a bustling island with military occupation and you and five or four friends can play a single kind of multiplayer campaign set in the ’70s.”
