Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adds Vikendi night variant

The moonlit version of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds map Vikendi has launched in the main version of the game, after a week on the test server. Green rays of aurora borealis dance across the sky, the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, and the mid-sized snowy map doesn't play too differently but it does look jolly nice. This update also reworks item spawn rates…

PUBG Report lets you see all the streamers you’ve murdered

Kill-cams in shooters are fun, but PUBG Report - a web-app that tracks when and where streamers get shot in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds - is just for farming schadenfreude. Using Plunkbat's extensive database of who killed what and where, all you need to do is plug an in-game name into the page here. If they've killed or been killed by anyone that was streaming within the past…

PUBG devs investigating invisible player bug

So many games of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds end with me getting shot out of nowhere by someone I never saw. It's the authentic Plunkbat experience - though a bug that turns players invisible might be taking things a step too far. That bug definitely exists, and is definitely being investigated by developers PUBG Corp. The only question is whether it's a recent phenomenon.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds tests free, low-spec version

If you’ve always wanted to drop into Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, but lacked the PC power, you might soon be in luck. The developers are currently running a beta test for PUBG Lite; a version of the game designed to run with much lower hardware requirements. They’ve also lowered the monetary requirement about as far as it'll go, making this version of the game free-to-play.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding night to Vikendi

A nighttime version of the snowy map Vikendi is coming Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, and today is live on the test server so we can have a peek. The moonlight variant, which is picked at random, is darker but far from pitch black, illuminated by a full moon and the rippling green aurora borealis. What a beautiful night to murder 99 people. The update will also bring…

Update: Vikendi is now live on the test servers and HAS A DINO PARK? The fourth map of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds will be a snowy affair named Vikendi, developers PUBG Corp announced tonight.

ESA defend loot boxes again, while IGDA call for industry self-regulation

Several video games industry associations have reacted to the news that the USA's Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are planning to investigate loot boxes over concerns about potential impact on children. America's Entertainment Software Association (ESA), whose duties include running the E3 games show, have repeated their stance that loot boxes "can enhance the experience" and aren't gambling and they're fine okay just leave it. The…

Aw for… Plunkbat’s 50v50 event mode delayed by ‘critical error’

The lads are going to kill me. I promised them the stag party of a lifetime, a fifty-lad pub crawl from Zharki through Georgopol then a boat ride to Primorsk and a dune buggy race to Mylta, closing by breaking into Mylta Power in search of radioactive goop to chug. I've had special tour t-shirts printed. They've all booked this weekend off work. And now,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds first 50v50 event start tonight

When two stag or hen parties chance upon each other down Espionage and merge, the ground trembles at the might of their combined banter and windows the length of Victoria Street rattle to their roars. I cannot begin to imagine the consequences if twelve parties should join forces. We'll find out this weekend in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, as the stag & hen battle royale will tonight…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds fixing faulty region sorting

Adding automatic region sorting to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds was supposed to solve the problem of jerks disrupting games by connecting to distant servers where they'd lag around with high pings. In reality, last week's update caused more problems. Players could find themselves sorted--and locked--onto servers that clearly weren't in their local region, and in laggy games with folks thrown in from all around the world. Not…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has banned over 13 million cheaters

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has long struggled with cheaters, popping up from nowhere to headshot you from across the map and possibly through some walls. For 16 months, the developers have been posting weekly accounts listing how many players they've permanently banned for cheating – a number that now adds up to over 13 million. That's about as many people as live in the whole nation of…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds brings back map selection, kinda

On paper, the big update which hit Playerunknown's Battlegrounds in the wee hours sounds pretty good. It adds a new anti-cheat system, brings back map selection, whacks in a ranking system to climb, and enables automatic region sorting to hopefully keep distant players from lagging up our rounds. In reality, ah, it seems little it might be a little messy.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding flare guns and ranking system

It's Plunk a go-go today with many titbits of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds news. To summarise: 1) A new event gives the opportunity to earn a fantastic giant hat, the sort of enticing hat that tourists on a stag or hen weekend would instantly buy. 2) The flare gun seen in the Metal Rain event, which can call in a special huge airdrop or an armoured vehicle,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds new event mode is all about that VSS

As a fan of any video game gun best described as "endearingly crap with a real knack to it", I am delighted that the latest temporary event mode in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds focuses on its worst sniper: the VSS. Y'know, that one with a wooden stock and built-in silencer, the one which plings lazy 9mm bullets like a child throwing pebbles, the one which is so…

Training day in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds plus tuk-tuks, lasers and a new rifle

A bundle of new stuff has arrived on Playerunknown's Battlegrounds's test servers today. Heading up Update 21 (find the full notes here) is Training Mode, a small practice map for up to 20 players where nobody dies (even if you kill them), and there's plenty of toys to test this newfound immortality on friends and strangers alike. There's a new assault rifle - the 7.62mm MK47…

Parp parp! Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adds a scooter and new gun

A new weapon and a cute scooter have arrived in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds overnight, bringing new ways to murder and new ways to live your best stag & hen weekend. Two folks can sit on the scooter as it whines along, so you might want to have a chugging contest to decide who rides with the bride. The new assault rifle seems a right good'un too,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding training map in September

At last, the final piece of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds lore will fall into place when a 'Training Mode' map is added next month. Along with the oft-requested shooting range to test out weapons and figure out how the heck this whole 'ballistics' thing works, across four square kilometres it'll include shooting target courses, a spot to practice parachute drops, places to clamber around, tracks to race…
