PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds week 12 update is heavy on performance fixes.


The 12th weekly patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is nearly here. As you’d expect, no new content is being added but a whole lot of performance fixes are.

The update is already live on the test servers, and it looks like things are going smoothly so far that it’s ready for the live release. Servers will go offline for maintenance beginning 1am PT, 4am ET, 9am BST, 10am CEST.

This is not the patch that’s going to add the new Glock 18-C pistol. You’ll find that in the monthly update next week.
