Hot off the heels of turning up on Xbox's stage to announce that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is coming to Microsoft's console, but in the here and now, the game is in Early Access on Steam and it's still going through an terrible lot of development and changing. That's just one of the improvements coming to the game soon, according to a brief chat with developer Bluehole during this year's PC Gaming Show. The video shows a character vaulting and jumping over fences, cars, and even out of a window.

The game will also be getting more dynamic weather options, featuring clear days, fog, and sunsets, on top of the already existing rainy days. You'll be missing out on the gorgeous weather effects that are coming in, if you do that yourself though.

You can see some of the changes in the trailer above. "So it's not necessarily going to be you're going to be sniping all the time". A new weapon - the OTs Groza - is being added.
