Early Access Month 3 Update

The third monthly update of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is finally out, providing more changes to explore. If you are playing PUBG game, you should keep track of the weekly and monthly updates to learn more info and find out what was changed in the game.

 General changes made by development team

The developers have enhanced the server performance over the past weekly patches, and they will continue improving it as well as the client performance in the forthcoming time.

In addition to the server improvement, the developers also attempt to handle the players that are cheating in the game. Over 25,000 users in the last three months have been banned. The BattlEye will be also supported in PUBG game to give more protections and detect any players that try to cheat.

The gameplay is being monitored and observed by the developers too. There will be a lot of reports on how you play the game, and they will be done by the data science team. The size and speed of the playable area, along with loot balance, as well as gunplay properties will be much more enhanced in the future to make sure that all players will have a better gaming experience.

Just to remind you, the loot balance was modified in this month already.

Right after the data science team has begun their analysis, the development team starts to modify the in-game loot balance, which is seen as the initial real pass. More of the pass will be given out throughout the Early Access.

The number of items spawned is not stable because of a bug. This kind of error happened throughout the period of adjusting the spawn table internal structure for growing the custom games. Once checking out and testing the problem, the developers figured out there was the same problem through all spawn tables.

In addition, the item looting experience for items will be upgraded. More enhancements and modifications will be released on a frequent basis depending on a lot of different analyzed data and feedback from the players.

The patch will be installed to the Test Servers with a specific schedule which is on Wednesday, June 28. It will be even deployed to the Live Servers on Thursday if things stay stable.
