PC 1.0 Update #8

Players,

We are always working towards improving the gameplay environment. This includes providing stable network experience for our players. You all know that we have implemented ping based matchmaking system that has shown great results but we didn't want to stop there.

One of the solutions we are considering is operating servers so that only those players who reside in that region can connect and play. These servers will be made invisible to players residing in other regions. But, at the same time, if a player in an exclusive server region forms a team with a player from another region, they can connect to and play on any of the servers available to either of them.

Through this new approach, we are aiming to provide a better gameplay experience as it will improve network issues and help with linguistic barriers. We are going to run a limited test of this approach as more detailed research and analysis should come before global application.

After the updates made to this test build are proven to be stable, they will be applied to the live servers. We will announce the timeline for the live server update soon.

Please leave your feedback in the relevant section on our Official Forum

Lobby
  • KR/JP joint server is now separated into KR server and JP server
    Leaderboard for both KR Server and JP server are added
    KR/JP players will be able to see and play on the server for their respective regions

A free skin is out: https://playbattlegrounds.com/news/135.pu


Celebrate PUBG's 1-Year Anniversary with a Special Gift

Image

Players,

A lot of things have happened in the world of PUBG in the last year. On the 23rd of March, 2017, we launched on Steam Early Access and so many of you have joined us in the best Battle Royale experience out there. Throughout our journey, we went from a pre-alpha build that only a few select players knew about to one of the most popular games in videogame history.

We achieved this only with your support and generosity! It's hard to express the kind of gratitude we feel for our players. For some things there are no right words.

But as a small token of that gratitude, we're giving away a free anniversary weapon skin. Anyone who logs into PUBG, until the May 1st week maintenance, will get the Year One - SCAR-L

*This skin is neither tradable, nor destructible.

Do not miss your chance to get the limited edition one year anniversary weapon skin and share the news with your friends who play PUBG.
