PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS NEWS

PATCH NOTES

Closed Beta Update 3

Players,

Today we look at the major changes we have made this week. Before we get to that, we are exctied to announce a new gamemode for this weekend's testing, SQUADS! In SQUADS, you will be able to team up in groups of 2, 3 or 4 players, or if you prefer, you can still play solo and take on everyone alone!

All servers will open at 8AM PDT/ 3PM UTC on Friday, and close at 8AM PDT/ 3PM UTC the following Monday!

Next onto the changes and bug fixes we have made to the game for this weekend’s test.

KNOWN ISSUES

Your character may sometimes exit a vehicle in an unarmed state 
 (This issue has now been fixed)

• Increased player count to 100 per match 
• All players now start the match in a single airplane

BUG FIXES
