'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' experiments with changes to the blue zone

The update is now being trialed through the Test Server, with a Live Server launch scheduled for later today.

While the game's singular pre-match starting area and the wanton chaos it brings has been a staple of PUBG since its release, if you're a regular PUBG player then having to listen to the sound of so many weapons being fired simultaneously can be a headache. It's common for frame rates to drop in the lobby thanks to the large number of players collected in one area, and PUBG Corp is addressing the area's chronic chug problem. To solve this, we have introduced multiple areas where players gather before the match start.

The other highlight has to do with improving server and client performance.

The developer adds that "additional modifications" tied to airplane performance are also planned, which we should expect more on soon. Once changes on the test servers are evaluated to be stable, the update will rolled out to the live servers. The studio explains they're about to test a new security system, which may cause some incompatibility issues on PC, and even game crashes. Yet, despite the success, the developers are still looking into changing up aspects of the game so that it does not grow stale and, in a recent update, the "PUBG" team announced plans for rebalancing the deadly blue zone.

In an effort to improve the performance of the game and its servers, PUBG Corp.is removing weapons from the spawn island entirely in a new update on the game's test server. But anti-cheat measures are being implemented to stamp out this behaviour and ban players who are spoiling the fun for the rest of us.
