Whether you fancy a tropical getaway this weekend or to skulk in a wet area with a bunch of parents dressed as bushes, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has you coated. To begin, the ultimate public beta take a look at of the battle royale shooter’s third map, Sanhok, has been prolonged as soon as once more, this time till Monday. The tropical map been fairly wonky on the take a look at servers, with gamers stuttering and jerking round significantly initially of rounds, so builders PUBG Corp wish to take a look at it extra. As for moist fields, the crew deathmatch occasion mode War is returning tonight, this time arming everybody with sniper rifles and ghillie fits on wet Erangel.
The Sanhok take a look at, the ultimate one earlier than the map is because of launch in direction of the top of the month, was initially supposed to finish this Monday however was extended till at the moment. Now it’s extended again, this time operating till midday on Monday, June 11th (that’s 4am Pacific).
PUBG Corp are eager to check a possible repair for the lag Sanhok suffers in early rounds, which might make spicy drops specifically fairly annoying as you jerk round and fail to select up weapons. They say that the issue is right down to servers sending “unnecessary” information to gamers, overloading them. Here comes the science bit – focus!
“Currently, the gap by which gamers are rendered is as much as a most radius of 1km out of your present place. As Sanhok is 1/4th the dimensions of Erangel and Miramar, the variety of gamers inside this 1km space is usually a lot larger.
“Some performance issues have arisen due to this, with the direct result being a reduced server frame speed, which leads to early-game server performance issues, including player teleporting or stuttering. According to our internal data, the kill rate at extremely long distances is very low and therefore we’ve decided to reduce the maximum player render distance specifically on Sanhok, which will increase performance.”
Once they’ve made that change in a patch, they wish to see if it truly works, and so testing will proceed to Monday.
I’ve loved Sanhok, regardless of the wonk, so I hope they’ll resolve this and convey it to the sport’s pure (however definitely non-zero) stage of wonk. For just a few ideas to assist get you began, take a look at our Sanhok guide.
If you need one thing nonetheless particular however extra steady, this weekend’s War Mode occasion may be curiosity you. ‘One Shot, One Kill‘ will provide 10v10v10 crew deathmatch on a small and wet part of Erangel (oh, how I’ve missed the rain!).
All gamers will spawn with a Kar98ok sniper rifle, a 4x scope, a ghillie swimsuit, and a handgun, which is able to fill the land with dryad and ent cosplayers attempting to homicide one another unseen. The occasion will even disable knockdowns, which means in the event you get shot and go down, you’re straight to lifeless and into the respawn queue.
No purple zone, no crate drops, no loot. And as ever, the War rounds will final 15 minutes at most.
The new War occasion is beginning in a single day, at 6am on Friday for us right here within the UK (however 10pm on Thursday for our Pacific associates). It’ll then run till 6am on Monday the 11th (10pm Sunday Pacific).
