PUBG Reveals Development Update and Visual Improvements to Erangel

Today, PUBG Corporation revealed a look at the exciting developments underway for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) in a new Development Update video. Executive Producer TS Jang lays out PUBG’s vision for the rest of the year, including a look at the fun new in-game and out-game/persistent elements the team is working on.

Starting at 4am BST tomorrow, players can jump in to take a look at some of what is in store. The Erangel Visual Update will be live on PC Test Servers, allowing fans to check out improvements and provide feedback before being available on PC and consoles later this summer. Until June 9, 4am BST, players can jump into the map by joining sessions hosted by PUBG community partners. Following this, the map will be readily accessible to the general public until June 12, 4am BST. An important part of PUBG since Early Access, Erangel continues to grow with the community by adding new building styles, more realistic scenery, new/changed areas and more.

Additional updates will be coming to PUBG throughout the year in themed seasons, each of which will debut new content, features and a Survivor Pass. New gameplay elements like a Ledge Grab mechanic and vehicles like the amphibious BDRM will add new vertical and aquatic dimensions to the game. An increased focus on progression systems will also make game experiences more closely interconnected. These and other new features mean that there has never been a better time to play PUBG!
