The second monthly update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is slowly being unravelled.

Ahead of this week’s big update, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has revealed a couple more things we’ll be seeing in this second monthly update.

We already know we’re getting client performance improvements, and a new weapon in the VSS, but there’s more to the update than that.

In a series of tweets, the the game’s official Twitter showed off a new motorbike, which you can see a video of above. This one looks faster and more manoeuvrable than the version with the sidecar. It’s not clear how many players it’ll be able to hold, though the answer will likely be two.

Interestingly, the update will also add the ability to control the bike in the air, which is great for those bumpy roads that sometimes send you flying to your death. It also should prove useful when pulling off stunts.

Finally, PlayerUnknown has identified and fixed a targeting issue in the game that made repeated shots less accurate. The reason for this, as you can see in the video below, was due to misalignment between where the scope points and where the bullet would actually land. This has now been fixed, and the fix will be rolled into the next patch.

The full patch notes are expected later today alongside some developer commentary for all the changes.
