PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS feature 3

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – First patch changes map selection ratio, reduces latency issues

Bluehole Studio has released the first patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. According to the release notes, this update changes the map selection ratio and adjusts the replay system so that players can only view game replays from 3 minutes after death. 

In addition, this update fixes the issue where some buildings and objects were not marked on the Miramar world map, and reduces occurrences of the issue where replays occasionally crashed back to the lobby screen. Moreover, this patch fixes the issue where players could die unexpectedly from fall damage, as well as the issue where bullets couldn’t penetrate particular fences from both sides.

Last but not least, Bluehole has removed some inefficiencies in server infrastructure and optimized in-game servers to alleviate the latency issues that have plagued the game. More specifically, Bluehole made adjustments to reduce the bottleneck during the game server launch phase and also resolved some server hitch issues.

This first update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is 1GB in size and will be auto-downloaded from Steam the next time you launch its client. Below you can find its complete changelog.
