Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds raining armoured vehicles in Metal Rain mode

Today's forecast for Erangel is spicy with outbreaks of banter and light showers of armoured vehicles, as the 'Metal Rain' event mode returned to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds this morning. Running for three short days, it features eight-player teams and lets us find flare guns to call in supply planes dropping either a family size care package or an armoured UAZ. As for other newness, remember that…

Now YOU TOO can create custom games on the Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds test server

When I saw that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds had given everyone on its test servers the ability to create custom matches, I shrugged. I'm sure some are interested in fiddling with circle behaviour, loadouts and vehicle spawns, but not I. I was content to continue with vanilla Plunking, especially when today's update also includes a car and a new DMR for my favourite map. Then I learned…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds keeps fixes rolling

While the makers of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds work away on undoing some of its more enduring technical problems, fixes are still coming for the more immediate stuff. This past week saw the launch of an update aimed at reducing lag problems on the North American servers by fixing an issue which stopped their matchmaking from filtering people by ping - which turned out to have combined…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds investigating causes of connection problems

The makers of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds say they have found one potential reason why some recent players have grumbled about being shot by people so far around corners they hadn't even seen them. PUBG Corp say the update last Wednesday, July 4th, unintentionally broke the North America servers' ping-based matchmaking restrictions which are supposed to keep high-ping lagjerks out. I find it extremely validating when my…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds unleashes close-combat team deathmatch on Sanhok tomorrow

I've come to accept that battle royale shooters aren't usually my thing, but knockabout team rumbles like tomorrow's Plunkbat 'Huntsmen Vs Marksmen' War event and Fortnite's 50v50 mode are right up my alley. Tomorrow, the cozy new battlefield of Sanhok plays host to a fast-paced team deathmatch, with players dropping in (and respawning) with shotguns and pistols, while supply drops promise rare and highly contested longer-range…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds fixes Sanhok glitches, but wider tech improvements still coming

While Fortnite is intentionally creating holes in its world, this week the handymen of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds are patching up accidental holes. The latest patch is bringing fixes for several irksome spots on new map Sanhok where dastardly players could creep under the ground or inside rocks to hide and even shoot out unseen. As for bigger fixes the game could still use, particularly to improve…

DropAdvisor: Paradise Resort, Sanhok
“Bit of a tip, but a top time”

Pros: Great vibe, top banter, cracking japes. Cons: Bit of a dump, no bogs. In brief: A slice of heaven for any stag or hen weekend. Rating: ★★★★☆ "Heaven is a place on Earth," Belinda Carlisle sang. I had always thought that sentiment trite, but after visiting Paradise Resort I know it's true. I've returned from one final prenuptial jolly with the lads on Sanhok,…

Feature: Battling is for chumps

A tourist’s guide to Sanhok

I’m a little bit in love with Sanhok, the new Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds map. It's packed with specific locations that have grabbed my attention in a way that nowhere on Erangel or Miramar has managed, but I’ve also been struck time and time again by its incidental loveliness. Come and join me on a little tour of this lush, vibrant jungle. There’s a nice bridge.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale end mega-daft legal battle

The makers of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds have dropped their lawsuit against Fortnite Battle Royale makers Epic Games, ending a battle whose premise was even dafter than their own 'stag & hen weekend banter gets out of hand, escalates to murder'. PUBG Corp and parent company Bluehole had long griped about how similar Fortnite was to Plunkbat then in May escalated their discontent to court, claiming Epic…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds making Event Pass less stingy

The very nature of 'battle passes' in multiplayer games is grinding through challenges to unlock cosmetic shinies, but the one Playerunknown's Battlegrounds launched last week to celebrate its new map, Sanhok, was taking the Michael a little. Sure, the beachwear it can eventually unlock is quite nice, but getting there is quite a task - especially with stringent restrictions on levelling up the Event Pass.…

Plunkbat is getting a premium Battle Pass system now

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is getting a new time-limited progression system where you level up a pass by playing the game, netting yourself rewards as you… hang on a moment. Didn’t I just write this? Though they’re quite similar, there are some differences between the passes. Plunkbat’s ‘Event Pass’, for instance, is way more insistent about getting you to drop cash on it.

Plunkbat costs fewer Plunkbucks, to celebrate hitting 50m players

Since pretty much day one, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been wildly popular enough that discounting it was about as logical as spending $3,600 per month on candles. But lately, two things have happened: 1) Fortnite is considered flavourtown these days 2) Plunkbat just passed the 50 million Plunkbatters milestone. To celebrate/rezeitgeist, it's now available for a third off for the next fortnight (ohhhhhhhhhhh) - making it…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is heading to sunny Sanhok this week

Sanhok, Plunkbat’s third battleground, is set to launch on Friday. It’ll be accompanied by an update that will make performance tweaks, throw new weapons into the mix and update the UI. The map’s the smallest of the trio, so matches should shorter, but since you’ll still be duking it out with 99 other players, expect the actual battles to be larger. Take a gander at…

PUBG Corp responds to “asset flip” accusations

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has been accused of being an asset flip because it uses pre-made objects that have been purchased from the Unreal marketplace. Knowing that a chair was sold on the Unreal marketplace and then put in the game shouldn’t have a tangible impact, positive or negative, on anyone murdering their way through the massive warzones, but you’ll still find plenty of Reddit posts taking…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds teases shield, snow map

Amidst all the announcements of games coming out next year, Microsoft's E3 pressblast included three tasty bits of news for future Playerunknown's Battlegrounds updates from developers PUBG Corp. 1) The new map, Sanhok, will launch properly on June 22nd. 2) A ballistic shield is coming later this year, for cowards. 3) The whispered-about snowy map is expected to launch this winter. The devs also blast…

PUBG Miramar: the best places to drop, how to not die

With a few notable exceptions, deserts can be a rather unforgiving habitat for most living creatures. In Playerunknown's Battlegrounds' Miramar, this is made worse by one thing: up to 100 people are dumped out of an airplane to fight to the death. Perhaps you are one of the unlucky ones that must try to survive in this wasteland? Our PUBG Miramar guide will show you some…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds extending Sanhok test, getting sniper War mode

To start, the final public beta test of the battle royale shooter's third map, Sanhok, has been extended once again, this time until Monday. The tropical map been pretty wonky on the test servers, with players stuttering…

PUBG Sanhok map guide: what to look for, how to survive

So you've braved the forest of Erangel and the desert of Miramar, but you've not experienced true Battle Royale until venturing onto the tiny island of Sanhok - the newest and tiniest map in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Filled with lush jungles, ancient ruins, and an extensive river system, there's plenty of places for enemies to hide, especially with the ever changing weather. Not to worry though,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds extends final Sanhok test

The final beta for Sanhok, the 4x4km Southeast Asian island, was due to end today at noon but will now run until Thursday the 7th. That's three extra days to creep through paddy fields, master skydiving…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding Sanhok in June

The tropical new island of Sanhok will properly arrive as the third Playerunknown's Battlegrounds map "near the end of June", developers PUBG Corp have said ahead of the final public beta test's launch tonight. If you haven't dropped on Sanhok yet, you might want to get the download started early today, as it uses a whole separate client. Stag & hen parties who'd rather not…
