PUBG’s next map is an active volcano coming later this month

Last week we got a teaser for some new Plunkbat lore as narrated by excellent narration man Jonathan Frakes and yup, it sure was a clue for a new map. The battle royale 'em up's next map will arrive on October 21st for PC players (29th for console) along with the game's ninth season. We're all hot-dropping now because Paramo is home to an active…

Jonathan Frakes dishes more PUBG lore that might point to a new map

Celebrity cameos in games sure can dip into cringe territory but there is nothing, absolutely nothing, cringe-y about Jonathan Frakes narrating another lore teaser for Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Regale me with the sordid, unsolved curiosities of Plunkbat, Mr. Frakes. Looks like PUBG Corp's also planning a whole new website dedicated to lore for the battle royale. What mysteries might it hold?

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adds a new machine gun and decoy gunshot grenade

Remember a few weeks ago when "battle royale" made you think of gunshots and tactical gear instead of colorful jellybean critters? Well if you've forgotten, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has added a new decoy grenade that sings you the song of spent ammunition which aught to get you back in the FPS mindset. The new grenade, a new gun, and other changes have now hit PUBG's live…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds revamping Sanhok with loot trucks to chase

The small Playerunknown's Battlegrounds map of Sanhok is being revamped as part of Update 8.1 next week, developers PUBG Corp announced today. Numerous locations have been rebuilt, and an interesting new mini objective has been added. Autonomous Loot Trucks will be driving around the island, dropping crates of gear as they're attacked, and awarding particularly fancy gear when they're destroyed. Chasing a robopiñata in my…

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…

Plunkbat’s fantasy LARP mode is real, and it’s some decent daft fun

Turning the edgy murder enthusiasts of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds into daffy LARPers clad in homemade armour of tinfoil, buckets, and bathrobes sounds like an April Fools' joke, and it was - but the devs did still make it. The Fantasy Battle Royale event mode launched yesterday and is around for another six days, so I called up the laaads last night. It's really quite fun! The…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds will run fantasy LARP with classes in its April Fools’ event

Paladins, wizards, magic spells, unicorn motorbikes, and crafting are coming to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds with the silly Fantasy Battle Royale event mode celebrating April Fools' Day. Starting Wednesday, it's Plunkbat, right, but with fantasy classes. What I most like is how all this is dressed as shoddy LARP gear: the Paladin in tinfoil greaves; the Barbarian wearing a Buster Bluth muscle suit; the Wizard in his…

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.…

Feature: Planestyle Royale

Getting a chicken dinner with PUBG’s new planes is harder than it looks

Today in Playstyle Royale, the series where I head into a battle royale game and try to earn my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules, I will run someone over in a plane. They were added to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds servers last week, opening up a new frontier of aerial murder. I'm not going to give myself any additional handicaps, because I anticipate this will…

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,…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…
