PUBG Update 7.1 released, overhauls Vivendi Map, greatly improves performance & stability

PUBG Corporation has released a brand new update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on the test server. According to the release notes, Update 7.1 overhauls the Vivendi Map. Moreover, it brings a number of performance and stability improvements, as well as some Quality of Life Improvements.

PUBG Corporation has updated terrain, adjusted snow levels (and then readjusted them based on your test feedback), and changed cities and landmarks. Furthermore, it added a multi-track railway system to help navigate the island. It also converted the quaint Dino Park into Dinoland, the Prehistoric Park of the Future.

Additionally, the team has added the Mosin-Nagant Sniper Rifle to Vikendi and Erangel.

Not only that, but PUBG Corporation has greatly improved the game’s performance and stability. For instance, this patch greatly reduces instances of hitching during gameplay. It also optimizes the drop mesh of weapons and attachments in the world to reduce memory usage.

It’s also worth noting that PUBG Update 7.1 comes with some QoL improvements. For example, players can now cancel matchmaking while browsing other menus. The team has also cleaned up Network Debug UI to be less intrusive while playing, and has removed Network indicator icons. Also, TDM match results will now show players who’ve recently left the match and the Quantity button now works correctly when converting Blue Coupons to BP.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client (provided you’ve opted into the test server). You can also find here its complete changelog.
