The next update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is going to be a big one.

Using the hashtag #MakeHardcoreGreatAgain, creative director Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene tweeted out the news to fans. The server will present a tougher challenge for hardcore gamers, with a more realistic and limited point of view. The update is set to roll out first for NA/EU solo and duo matches, and will come to other regions in the future.

The PUBG subreddit is pretty ecstatic about the news, as first-person servers have been high on their wish-list for some time now.

KitGuru Says: A first-person only mode in a battle royale game will prove significantly more hard, acting like a hardcore mode. The third-person view allows players to have a better look of their surroundings and check around corners for possible danger, while the first-person view is often used for engaging against enemies for better accuracy. Players can technically switch between third-person and first-person views at will, but the vast majority of players prefer to stick to third-person. The developer's community manager, Sammie Kang, chimed in on Twitter confirming that the update will also include an FOV slider.

That said, a first person mode will be coming to the game, too- but it will be taking a little while longer.
