Yesterday, PUBG Corp. dropped a new update for the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds that focuses on fixing two significant issues in the game.

According to the developer, the new hotfix addresses an issue with long-range hits not registering correctly. In addition to a gameplay modification, the patch also fixes problems with the game’s lobby, which caused the player’s game to crash unexpectedly.


Speaking of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, last week, the popular battle royale game broke yet another record by reaching three million concurrent players on Steam. Additionally, PUBG Corp. released its first update since the game left Early Access, which introduced a Killcam and 3D Replay feature into the game. While the Xbox One version of the game also received an update recently, which allowed gamers the option to have one, two, or three-man squads created without the need for matchmaking with other players.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is currently available on PC. In case you haven’t already, check out DualShockers’ thoughts on the game, which was reviewed by our Features Editor, Ryan Meitzler. As I mentioned in the paragraph above the game is also available on Xbox One as an Xbox Game Preview title, which gained one million players within the first 48 hours of its launch.
