PUBG |  Update brings emotes, friends list and more

– PLAY BATTLEGROUNDS (@PUBATTLEGROUNDS) March 13, 2018

PC players, in this update we will implement several optimizations in the game and on the servers. We have significantly reduced cases of high latency and stuttering. In situations where players are pushed to the same location, as is the case in the second half of matches or in intense battles. This optimization will allow players to enjoy the most fluid Battle Royale experience ever.

In addition, as promised, we will introduce a new game mechanic – bullet penetration into the player’s limbs and vehicles. Unfortunately, we were forced to change our plans regarding this new mechanic but we will keep players informed shortly.

Regarding today’s update, you can read the details below. Please leave your feedback in the forum. As soon as the trial version proves stable, we plan to implement it on official servers later in the week. We will announce more details about this update and the official servers soon.
