Since launching on Early Access in March, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has dominated the Steam charts throughout the year, and has since expanded its recently-implemented first-person mode across all game types moving forward.

In a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account, first-person only servers have now expanded their availability across all game types in the North America, Europe, and Asian servers, which allows players to duke it out only in the game’s first-person perspective. First-person mode has been available in the game for quite some time since it’s debut, but those looking for a change from the third-person perspective of the game are in for an intriguing twist on the usual gameplay that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds offers.

The feature was previously launched as part of the latest monthly update, but was only made available in both Solo and Duo game types in certain regions, However, the game type’s availability across all types and regions (especially as part of Squads) should make for some interesting and intense encounters with the different point-of-view. The development team at Bluehole Studio also confirmed that leaderboards for first-person play across all game types will be added at a later date.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC through Steam Early Access – an Xbox One version of the title is also currently in development.
