  • PUBG Ending

We've complained about the existing system, which would sometimes randomly award you crates you had to pay to open, and the likelihood of that happening has gone down with this new update.

Best of all though, it is free.

What are you hoping for with the new map?

The really fortunate ones among you could get the whole set, as Bluehole explained that, as with the Gamescom Invitational Crate, you could get the entire set along with a single item when opening the FEVER crate. You're now much less likely to be stuck with a premium crate you have to pay to open if you'd like to avoid spending real money on the game. Developer Bluehole revealed this, along with a list of other updates, in a blog post on Steam.


Past year this new location was teased to contain both sandy beaches and snowy mountains.

On the plus side, the developer is working on a new map, which is expected to launch this summer.

Cheating has become a massive problem in PUBG, so much so that BattleEye, the game's current anti-cheat client, has reported that it has banned more than 2.5 million players through the end of January with that rate increasing throughout February. Development on the game itself has been halted as the team has moved towards improving its anti-cheat systems. After an update in the Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), vehicles will no longer be as before according to a Twiiter post by Andro Dars, Community Manager for the game. The lower the ping, the high priority you will have. The team is expecting to improve the overall play experience by splitting the matching pool rather than restricting connection depending on ping.

PUBG Corp.is planning to test this matchmaking starting this week in certain regions, and then it will expand that depending on how those early trials go.
