The brutal and unforgiving battle royale game PUBG PC came up with a new update that brings various adjustments to the game as well as adding new content and cosmetics to the game. In addition to that, the devs have also disclosed the patch notes of the official update and will be updated simultaneously with the live server instead of the test server. This will make sure that all of the features and tweaks in the game are balanced out and prevent players from exploiting these mechanics. With that being said, let’s jump into every detail and features introduced in this latest update of PUBG PC and what perks do they offer to players.
PUBG 15.1 details and patch notes
Map Service Update
PUBG PC disclosed the long-term Map Service Plan to its players not so long ago. But after carefully analyzing our player’s feedback, we discovered that our plan was something our players weren’t interested in. Therefore after thorough discussions based on the player’s feedback, we decided that it’d be best to change the map rotation service to Season 15 to the following
- Normal Match
- Erangel/Miramar / Sanhok / Taego / Vikendi
- Ranked Matches
- Erangel/ Miramar / Taego
taego will remain in the map rotation for Season 15 due to two primary reasons: first is the player’s feedback and second is that that our data shows us that Taego still stands as the most popular map in the game. With these taken into the account, Including haven to the rotation would most likely cause stability issues as we’d have to adapt the map selection UI for regions with map selection without deep testing. However, in regions without maps, there is a good chance that players would be unhappy about having to play several matches until they reach the map they prefer.
Players should know that our map service plan for Season 16 and later seasons are currently being discussed. However, a separate announcement will be made to our players once the decision has been finalized.
New Vehicle: Mountain Bike
One of the most exciting fan-requested vehicles is making a debut in the Battlegrounds. Compared to other vehicles found in the game, the mountain bike can be found as a lootable item in its folded state. The advantage of using Mountian bikes is that if you want to catch your enemies by surprise or plan a stealth approach, this vehicle can be pretty useful for players.
- Maps: All maps in normal matches
- Spawned in a folded form
- Does nit spawn in esports mode
- Folds back into an item when stored back in the inventory
- Maximum number of passengers: One
- HP: Cannot be destroyed, including the wheels
- Item Weight: 70
- Fuel Consumption: None
