PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds have released patch notes for the update which will be pushed out onto test servers today.

In the September update on Steam, Bluehole said, “The entire team is hard at work to stay on track with the current roadmap and move out of Early Access before the end of Q4 2017, and we hope to share more details about the official launch later this month. While we would like to provide updates as soon as we can, we want to take some time to finalize all the details and give you the full picture.”

The team are now spending time testing and fixing new features before they are deployed, they have said the test servers will be up for at least 2 days. The times include,

  • Test servers: This week, test servers will be up for at least 2 days
    o KST: Tuesday evening
    o CEST: Tuesday morning
    o PDT: Tuesday early morning
    o Live server update: Later this week – TBD

The full patch notes can be found on the September update blog, with key features including world changes such as foggy weather being added, to hinder player sight and a new town, as well as an additional weapon.

World

  • Added Foggy weather
    o The foggy weather effect will hinder player sight on the map. This weather effect has a low probability to occur
    o In order to test the weather effect, the foggy weather will have a higher chance to occur during test server gameplay, but will be reduced for Live servers
  • Enhanced graphics of the sky in pre-existing weather effects
  • Added a new town, East of Stalber

New Item

  • Added a new weapon, the Mini-14. The Mini-14 is a lightweight and compact 5.56 semi-automatic marksman rifle
    o The weapon uses sniper rifle attachments for both the muzzle and magazine slots, and can take any type of optic sight
    o This weapon has lower damage stats than other DMR’s, which is compensated by very high muzzle velocity and low bullet drop
