Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Update Out Today For Some, Here’s What It Does

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has a new update out today on its PC public test server, bringing with it a bunch of bug fixes and small improvements.

Specifically, you can no longer exit a vehicle that is blocked all the way round, and tire effects will change immediately when a vehicle moves onto a different type of surface. Elsewhere, the game’s UI performance has been improved, and a south-east Asia server has been added.

Take a look at the full patch notes at the bottom of this article. The update is out today on Battlegrounds’ test server, and it will likely drop on Thursday, July 6, “if everything is stable.”

Looking ahead, a new, desert-themed map is on the way for Battlegrounds, along with a snowy arena set in the Adriatic region. No release date has been announced for either map, but the former was recently shown off for the first time.

Developer Bluehole announced the new maps at E3 2017, where it also showcased a new weapon–the short-to-medium range OTS rifle–and improved traversal animations. More weather effects are also on the way, along with mod support further down the line.

The other Battlegrounds news from E3 was that the title is coming to Xbox One as a “console launch exclusive” later this year. It has so far reached 3 million players on PC, where it remains in Early Access.

Finally, the battle royale title will soon add a new Zombies mode, in which players can control the undead and attempt to overcome their human enemies. For more on the popular multiplayer game, check out our Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Let’s Play.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
