Servers hosting this mode will appropriately be referred to as "hardcore servers" in-game. "Dedicated first-person servers will take some time as it requires a lot of work from all teams, it's not as easy as just flipping a switch". The July update will see implementation of the much welcomed field of view slider as well as dedicated first-person servers.

PLAYERUNKNOWN's Battlegrounds released on Steam March 23, 2017, and has accrued over 300,000 active players. Third person is especially useful for traversing the environment, peering around corners and driving vehicles. When you remove the third-person camera, players who play extremely defensive and camp will no longer have the advantage in gunfights.

Having a first-person mode should also remove the free-look ability, forcing everyone to constantly shift and check their surroundings. According to Greene, "You will not be forced to play on 1st person servers!" These first-person servers will only be available in the Solo and Duo games for America and Europe, but "will expand to other regions" once everything has been fine-tuned. The dev team is also working to "improve" PUBG's first-person viewpoint, though Greene didn't offer specifics as to how.

Seems PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is about to get even more intense.
