PUBG News: PC 1.0 Update #2 Now Live; Patch Notes Detailed

Bluehole Studios is back with yet another update for its groundbreaking, battle royale title, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). The all-new PC update for PUBG comes loaded with a number of new changes and features. However, the most important bit of the update is the addition of two new crates, providing players with a ton of new cosmetic items.

On Wednesday, the developers came out with a statement regarding the implementation of its PC 1.0 Update #2 for the game’s test servers. The testing has been successful as the developer have now brought the update to PUBG’s live servers.

For all PUBG fans, the opportunity is here to try out the new features. The live servers are now up-to-date with all of the changes from the PC 1.0 Update #2. Furthermore, due to the delay and the error linking to BPs, the developers are compensating for the loss.
