PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is one of the most popular games on the Internet, and shows all signs of continuing to get more popular. Though PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is an early access game, it’s attracted millions of gamers, and they want it to keep getting better. To that end, there have been regular updates that brought fixes, new features, and new weapons to the game. But recently the developer, Bluehole Studio, decided to change it’s patch schedule and do away with monthly patches. But a new, albeit small, patch just went out.
The new patch doesn’t bring in any of the major features a lot of PUBG players are undoubtedly hoping for, such as a first-person mode leaderboard or the climbing and vaulting abilities the developers have been showing off since E3 2017. Here are the details of the patch:
Partially fixed client crash
Fixed marker graphics bug on the World map
Fixed miscellaneous bugs with team game reconnect feature
Fixed a bug that caused a player to exit a vehicle when they pressed ‘F’ to cancel using an energy drink
Bluehole Studios’ decision to throw out the patch schedule likely raised concerns from a lot of players, as it could mean a delay in seeing some of features players want most go live. But this recent patch at least seems to indicate the Bluehole Studios will continue to release fixes to some of the problems still facing players in the Early Access stage of the game, and there still are plenty of things PUBG needs to fix.
Unfortunately, this patch isn’t likely a signal that players will get the big features they’ve been waiting for, like new maps and more movement abilities, anytime sooner. Since Bluehole Studio dropped the patch schedule to focus on the quality of each patch, it seem more likely the features will take longer to reach players, though the game is still planned for a final release within around five months.
All the same, it’s good news for players of PUBG to receive bug fixes in steady order. This is especially true as the player base continues to surge, passing most games on Steam’s peak players chart, and going even higher recently.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available in Early Access for PC, with a late 2017 release expected for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
