You can play PUBG for free on Steam this weekend

If you've ever fancied giving Playerunknown's Battlegrounds a try, now is probably the time to do it, because over the next few days it's holding a free weekend. It kicked off yesterday and will run until 6pm BST on Monday the 8th of June, so there's still plenty of time left to get droppin' with the boys. And if you suddenly decide PUBG is the…

PUBG’s new Ranked Mode is now live for ladder climbing enthusiasts

Update 7.2 for ye olde Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has landed hot on the live servers and it's coming with some changes that are likely to rock the boat a bit. Despite PUBG Corp calling them a "controversial topic," non-player AI contestants are dropping in to regular matches. For the extra-competitive players, a new Ranked Mode is replacing the old Survival Title system and is getting its…

PUBG will start pitting you against bots if it judges your skills lacking

Yup, it's happening. Bots are going to be joining your Playerunknown's Battlegrounds matches—but only if you need some extra target practice. PUBG Corp say that bot opponents have been a "controversial topic" for the battle royale but that they think the widening skill gap between veteran players and the new chaff demands an easier entry to their murder islands. They're relegated to the test servers…

Jonathan Frakes probes the fact or fiction of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds lore

A new Playerunknown's Battlegrounds in-universe documentary explores the history of a deserted dinosaur theme park with the perfect host: Jonathan Frakes. He's recently escaped the shadow of playing William T. Riker on the sci-fi show Lexx, finding new fame for saying "Not this time" and "It's a total fabrication!" in compilation videos of his time hosting 90s show Beyond Belief: Fact Or Fiction. Who better…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has overhauled Vikendi, expanding its dinosaur theme park

The small snowy map of Vikendi returned to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds with the start of Season 7 today, having been pulled from rotation in January for improvements. They've removed a few villages, added more cover in places, reduced the amount of snow across a lot of the island, and, most importantly, rebuilt the scrappy old Dino Park (which I did already adore) as the larger and…

PUBG has a new Team Deathmatch mode now

The latest Playerunknown's Battlegrounds patch went live today, introducing a classic Team Deathmatch game mode. It's being added as part of a new Arcade section in the game, which will start introducing more varied ways to play PUBG aside from the usual battle royale stuff. There's some updates to that battle royale stuff too, though, including a few alterations to the new map Karakin, as…

PUBG is adding an 8 on 8 team deathmatch mode

Despite making its name as a last man standing game of 30-ish minute rounds, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has dabbled with speeding up its matches over the years. It hasn't quite outrun the "running simulator" pejorative because apparently I'm one of the few folks that actually enjoys having sweaty palms and an elevated heart rate while tactically sneaking from bush to bush as the play area narrows.…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds added new map Karakin, and rotated out Vikendi

The travel company behind Playerunknown's Battlegrounds today added a new stag weekend destination, the roasting North African island of Karakin. The new map is the smallest so far, only 2x2km but still cramming in 64 players. It's hazardous too, because its new 'Black Zone' bombings can outright destroy buildings and the new sticky bomb weapon lets players blast holes in some walls too. With Karakin…

PUBG is introducing a brand new map with destructible buildings

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds new year action will see players getting to drop in on a brand new 64-player map, the island of Karakin. Set in a delightfully arid desert location, Karakin has completely destructible buildings thanks to an edgy new feature named Black Zone - a hazard that changes the map layout each match.On top of this, players who enjoyed the Motor Glider featured on PUBG…

You can test this silly plane car in PUBG Labs for two days

Back in November, PUBG introduced PUBG Labs. It's a sort of middle ground between the cordoned off test server and the final, public version of the battle royale 'em up where players can opt in to try new features while they're still on the cooling rack. The latest addition to PUBG Labs is this daft plane that you can try flying for the next two…

PUBG’s last update of the year is live with blood and holiday cheer

Nary a game is safe from a December makeover complete with snow, fir trees, and presents. PUBG's 5.3 update has migrated from the test to public servers and although the patch notes make mention of actual quality of life changes, I admit I got distracted by the uncannily cheery change to its lobby.  The last 2019 update for Plunkbat brings blood splatter changes, gun favoriting,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds will let you throw pans at people

Ever since I saw the throwing pans of Mordhau, putting a banging donk on people with a pan in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds just hasn't been the same. So I am delighted to see that the next major update will let us hoy melee weapons at our foes, or use our strong throwing arm to toss a cold fresh can of juice to our pals. Plunkbat Season…

PUBG Lite coming to Europe in October

The free-to-play version of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds for slower PCs is coming to Europe in October, developers PUBG Corp have announced. PUBG Lite is a separate standalone game, not a mode or option for the original. And yeah, it looks worse and it gets updates later, but also it's free and can run on a laptop with a cruddy Intel integrated graphics card - two huge…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds’ newest update brings better stats so you can track your survival skills

Perfect timing. Usually, I track my progress in online games by how large my pile of broken mice is, but during a recent intervention by my bank manager, my therapist, and my cleaner, it was made clear that that’s unsustainable. So I’m happy to report that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds 4.3 update is another step towards a proper progression feature and that the good people at Corsair’s…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds brings dynamic weather to new Erangel

Ever-changing weather has drifted over the lovely revamped version of Erangel in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, with all manner of precipitation adding an extra touch of drama to the stag & hen weekends. The previous version of Erangel had dynamic weather and I had half-worried it might not carry over to the new but naw, we're good. I still miss Erangel's old full-time fog variant, even if…

Feature: The Battle Royale of Battle Royales

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Russia wins Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Nations Cup, UK manages not to come last

Competitive Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is a strange beast. Teams rack up points across multiple games for eliminating others and being one of the last few left alive, in various amounts depending on the tournament. That usually means that you can tell who’s going to win before the end, but not this time. Home team South Korea had pulled ahead early and stayed there – until the…

DropAdvisor: A return to Erangel

Pros: A bright makeover; ruin porn aplenty. Cons: Risk of revolution; mayor is creepy voyeur. In brief: Get back amongst it like you never left. Rating: ★★★★★While cheap air fares have opened up far-flung places like Mexico and Thailand to stag & hen parties, there's a lot to say for celebrating your last weekend of freedom somewhere familiar. After larging it in Miramar, Sanhok, and…
