PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ is now live on the game’s test servers. Several changes are coming with it, including in-game TVs streaming esports events, a new car, a reputation system, and an update to ranked mode.
First up for the patch is the new PGI.S (PUBG Global Invitational.S). This event pits teams from around the globe against each other in weekly tournaments. Each week these teams will fight it out for placements, and will earn prize money as the overall tournament continues. If you want to watch these skirmishes play out, you can do so in-game as PUBG will now have 10 displays set up around the Miramar and Erangel maps which will livestream the tournaments while they’re happening. There will also be an event called PGI.S Pick’em where players can earn PGI.S gear for correctly predicting tournament winners. If you don’t want to see the livestreams in your game, you can opt to turn the TVs off in your settings menu.
Now for what this patch is bringing to the regular game. A new vehicle is entering the arena, the Coupe RB. It’s a vintage two-seater sports car that can hit a top speed of 150km/h. Be warned, it only spawns on the Miramar, Sanhok, and Erangel maps.
