A new PUBG PC patch will be deployed on the live servers which includes small performance tweaks alongside new creates and various fixes.

The PUBG development team writes that they intend to release the update once the test build is stable enough. “We have continued to stabilize the game performance since the 1.0 release”, PUBG community coordinator PUBG_Hawkinz writes in a post on the game’s official forums. “We will be tweaking a few things to improve the performance of the game without comprising any gameplay elements. For example, in this test build, we have reduced the visible distance while in the air – this will improve the performance of the server and client in the beginning of the match. We plan to make small changes to the starting islands too in order to achieve similar goals.”
