PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is in the midst of an overhaul of sorts as the developers of the game aim to “Fix PUBG!”. But a side effect of that is that they’re trying to get the Xbox One version of the title ready for full launch. The Xbox version has been in the system’s version of Early Access since December of last year, and gamers are wondering when it’ll ever launch. Well, a new update is coming for the system, and PUBG Corp is bringing back the PTS (player test server to work everything out).
The team outlined the update on their forums, but also reiterated what the PTS is:
The PTS is a separate PUBG server that’s free to download for anyone who already owns a copy of PUBG. The purpose of the test server is not just to provide a preview of upcoming features, but to find the issues we need to solve so we can work on the fix as soon as possible. The changes listed below are all coming to the PTS first because many of the changes still needs to be tested to see if there are any issues with performance.
“PTS will be available to all players, available maps (Miramar, Erangel) will be the same as live servers. Please be aware that some game modes will be restricted and only the NA server will be available to play on due to lower player numbers compared to live servers, which can lead to extended matchmaking times. We may open these modes at a later stage, depending on the number of players on the PTS.”
Some of the updates you can expect in the update is the new Limb Penetration gameplay mechanic, as well a Dynamic Weather system. Furthermore, some of the maps have been upgraded to deliver more fun gameplay experiences. The PTS test is live right now.
