PUBG debuts new Event Mode, with new map coming next week

While the spotlight has shifted in recent weeks from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to Fortnite, the former is looking to win back some of the battle royal attention with some new updates and content. The first, released on Friday, is a special, limited time game mode that revolves around a new flare gun, while next week will see the first gameplay on PUBG‘s newest map, Codename: Savage.

Those playing PUBG‘s four-player squad mode this weekend can already try out the new flare gun Event Mode.

PUBG mulls region-locked servers, adds new weapon skins and crates

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has a new patch going live on its test servers today, and boy is it a big one. In addition to adding a slew of new cosmetics to the game (more on that in a bit), this patch also explores the possibility of improving stability by implementing region-locked servers. Region locking servers is a feature players have been requesting for a while now, and though the developers of PUBG have resisted those requests so far, it looks like they’re ready to give in.

PUBG Corporation’s quest for network stability actually began by implementing a ping-based matchmaking system. Though the developers say that they’ve seen great results with that system, they didn’t want to stop there. This is where region-locked servers come in, and in a post to the PUBG Steam Communitytoday, the developers explain what th
