Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds deploys spike traps and starts loot box changes

Update 5.2 hit Playerunknown's Battlegrounds today, adding spike traps we can throw down to puncture tyres and overhauling a fair bit of the snowy map Vikendi. I can't imagine I'll often intelligently use a spike trap in an ambush, but you can be sure I'll throw down every last one I see, just in the hope of ruining someone's day. Probably my own when I…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Season 5 focuses the fight on Miramar

Drive over jumps and through loops! Toss energy drinks to your pals! Pelt your foes with pans and scythes! This is Miramar's transition from battleground to banterground.

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…

PUBG guns & weapons [Update 4.3]: PUBG gun stats, best weapons in Season 4

The unendingly changeable roster of PUBG guns and weapons takes a staggering amount of time to truly master. Each individual gun brings to the table a unique set of stats, spray patterns, behaviours, and other quirks. Now well into its fourth season, PUBG prides itself on its realistic gunplay, and its selection is larger than it's ever been thanks to the 4.3 update and the…

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…

New study finds that 74% have been harassed in online multiplayer games

According to a recent study by civil rights group the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), 74% of people who play online multiplayer games have experienced some form of harassment, with 65% experiencing “severe” harassment, which may include physical threats or stalking. And that's only the start of their downpour of awful numbers, which cover bigotry, extremist views, which games have the worst occurrence rates, and more.

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,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds launches Erangel makeover update

As pretty as the Erangel makeover headlining the new Playerunknown's Battlegrounds patch is, and it is both nicer and more noticeable than I'd expected, that's not what I've most enjoyed. No, the true joy of Update 4.1 for me is being able to heal while walking and automatically keep applying bandages until my dozy arse is fully patched. Some long-overdue quality-of-life features there. You need…

Competitive Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds’ eye-trackers creep me out

All my regular esports tournaments are on cooldown at the moment, so I’ve had my head peeked around the corner of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds for a bit. It’s good! I like getting into a new scene and deciding which team to support. I like how it gradually builds across the course of a match from something I’m not really watching in the background to the engrossing…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds story rewritten in disgraceful retcon

The world's finest stag & hen weekend banter simulator, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, has revealed its supposed 'true' story with an outrageous retcon in a new trailer. No, we're supposed to believe, the game isn't about lads and lasses going too hard and getting carried away with pranks. Now it's some wank about a kid surviving a massacre then hosting megamurders so other people can discover who…

Glen Schofield, the director of Call Of Duty: WWII and executive producer of Dead Space, has joined PUBG Corp to lead an "original narrative experience" set in the world of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. The developers today announced Schofield as CEO of their new studio, Striking Distance. I am, as a leading authority on the narrative of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, fascinated to see what the new team bring…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds enabling new Plunkbants with boatcars and parkour

The world's deadliest stag and hen weekend holiday company are introducing the final three features for a truly unforgettable night of deadly banter: a foolish ride in a novelty vehicle, daft pyrotechnics, and climbing onto the roof of a restaurant. The next Playerunknown's Battlegrounds update will add an amphibious boatcar, make the vehicle-refuelling petrol cans explode when shot, and let us grab onto ledges in…

It’s now a crime to play Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds in Nepal

According to reports from multiple Nepalese news sites, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has been banned in Nepal. Permission was granted by Kathmandu District Court on Wednesday, the very same day that the Metropolitan Crime Division filed a Public Interest Litigation asking for a ban, on the grounds that the game was "having a negative effect on the behaviour and study of children and youths". Justice, as they…

Feature: Island in the gun

Has Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds been improved by its updates?

Who says games aren’t educational? When I woke up this morning, I didn’t know the Korean word for “Red Zone.” That’s “Red Zone” as in, the randomly selected section of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds’ map that becomes an artillery test site for a time every few minutes, and “Red Zone” as in “the roving death circle that you really don’t want to be stuck inside.” Now, thanks…
