PUBG Update #30 - Now Live!



Update #30 is now available on live servers.


Now on live servers, Update #30 is dropping a lot of new content and updates onto the Battlegrounds. From a new weapon to an ambitiously amphibious way to traverse the map, this update most certainly has something explosive enough to blow everyone’s minds. 


To get a visual rundown of everything important coming in the patch, check out our patch report here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nP9yM0hsbY

Be sure to watch out for the new .45 calibre Deagle when you come upon it, as the high damagecannonhandgun can crack a level 3 helmet in two headshots. That is, if you’re able to control the recoil enough to land your shots. We’re also dropping a new, heavily armored assault vehicle in the BRDM-2 to win chicken dinners on land and sea. But what about the air? The new ledge grab feature will help you there, as you can now jump, climb and vertically navigate the Battlegrounds in ways you couldn’t before. 

  

Communications between squad mates just got way easier with the introduction of Radio Messages, short burst on-screen text that allows players to call out items and audibles throughout the match. You can learn more about Radio Messages, our latest weapon and vehicle, bug fixes and much more in the completepatch notes here.[www.pubg.com]

 

Our next Survivor Pass is right around the corner, but until it kicks off, be sure to earn BP through the Survival Rewards System to get cool loot. So drop in, loot yourself a Deagle and blast your way to a chicken dinner.

Z1BR and the Road Ahead of Us

First off, thank you all for your patience as we worked through what’s next for Z1BR. 


We have a deep love for this game. H1Z1 on PC, after all, is the OG BR game that launched the most popular genre in the world, and many of us have spent years working on it. We know as well as anybody how much the landscape for battle royale has changed over that time; but we still believe there is a special something to H1’s unique flavor of no-frills BR.

 

The dev team at NantG did an amazing job bringing Z1BR back to its roots, but the sudden transition left the game in today’s uncertain state. The challenges are real and significant. But we also know that many of you love this game just as we do. With your help, we believe we can try out some new ideas and get the game back on solid footing.


Ultimately, we understand that no single update or major content drop will ever get Z1BR back to #1 on Twitch or bring in millions of new players. But we’re not ready to call it quits either. Like you guys, many of us have poured thousands of hours into this game; we still believe it fills a special niche and offers a unique experience no other BR game can match.


PC vs PS4


The immediate challenge we faced at the beginning of this transition is that our team has been entirely focused on PS4 development for some time. Z1BR (PC) and H1Z1 (PS4) development and gameplay have forked in meaningful ways in the past year -- particularly when it comes to the core combat mechanics that make Z1BR so unique.

 

That said, while we don’t want to touch Z1BR’s core mechanics, one of the advantages we start out with is a deep library of PS4 content (past, present, and under development) that we’ve already begun scoping out for Z1BR. PS4 content like new modes (e.g. FFA), new weapons, new vehicles, new skins, and ultimately, a new map are now all on the table for Z1BR.

 

The game will still continue to look and feel like the Z1BR you know and love. Only now with both games under the same umbrella again, we have the opportunity to experiment with some of the fun new content we cooked up for PS4 that we can now bring to both games and both communities.

 

SEASON 4 


We initially ended Season 3 and kicked off a new, interim Season 4 so we could work on our strategy to support both games. Now that we’re ready, we plan to immediately introduce meaningful new content to Z1BR with our first game update next week on Thursday, June 13.

 

Next week’s update will include:

 

• ARV for all modes

• LMG and Scout Rifle for all modes

• 6 new Arcade Modes

• New Skins and Outfits


And on deck following next week’s update is the return of an old friend: Auto Royale!


This is our first opportunity to introduce some of the cool content our PS4 team designed, but it also signifies our focus on live service: more frequent updates, rotating Arcade modes, fresh content and new events.

 

SEASON 5…AND BEYOND


We have a lot more PS4 content available for Z1BR – some in active development, some tried and tested on console that we believe will make for a fun change of pace for our PC community.

 

But the BIGGEST content drop we know is coming to BOTH platforms is a major one: the new Outland map.

 


As our PC community remembers will with Z2 and Z1 Remastered, developing a new map is an enormous undertaking, and we’re not dropping a date until we’ve had more time for testing. But the good news is that Outland has been under development for PS4 for months now, which means we’re a lot closer to being able to bring it PC Test Servers than we would’ve been if we’d started developing it anew at the beginning of this transition.

 




Thank you again for all your patience and support over the last few months (and years!). This is just a first step forward, but the road ahead could not be more exciting.

 

PUBG Update #29 - Now Live!


Update #29 is now available on live servers.


Patch #29 is live and with it comes our 2nd Vikendi loot rebalance, new spawn kit options when creating Custom Matches and a brand new Tactical Map Marker system for communicating with your duo partner or squadmates. For a brief overview on this update’s highlights you can watch the Patch Report here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ySjIfmRInw


In this update, Vikendi was balanced to be friendlier to mid & long range firefights with increased ARs, SRs, and DMRs, plus the addition of the MK47 Mutant for that extra burst of firepower.

 

For more details on what was tweaked, fixed and upgraded, read ourdetailed Patch Update #29 Notes.

 

In addition to the changes to the game, a new round of Broadcaster Royale skins are available for purchase. You can see all of the latest Broadcaster Royale skinshere.

 

The season is almost over for Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card. You’ve only got a few short weeks left to complete missions and earn those glorious rewards. Once it wraps on June 5th, you’ll be able to review your progress and completions on an updated interface. You’ll also be able to claim any earned XP from completed missions until June 26th.

 

The clock is ticking, so drop into Vikendi, kit up your rifle and finish closing out those mission objectives. We’ll see you on the Battlegrounds.

PUBG Update 29 - Patch Notes


Hi everyone,


This update has a lot of exciting additions and balances. Tactical Map Markers have been added for better communication between Squad and Duo teams. We’ve added more spawn kit options in Custom Matches and Camp Jackal as a playable map in War Mode: Conquest. Our largest focus in this patch was rebalancing aspects of Vikendi. Following feedback on our first round of Vikendi rebalancing, we have tweaked the spawn rates to better equip players for long range fights.

In addition to info on the updates, with Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card winding down we’ve got details on how long you have to collect your XP and rewards, so definitely jump in there for the last few weeks and complete as many missions as you can.

We’ve got several new UI improvements and general Quality of Life improvements across the game. You can get all the details on the changes and additions made in #Update 29 below.

Fortnite Week 9 Challenges: Dance Between Ice Sculptures, Ride Volcano Vents, And More (Season 8)

It's a big week in Fortnite. We're now in Week 9 of Season 8, and the crossover event with Avengers: Endgame has begun, giving players the opportunity to wield iconic weapons against Thanos and his Chitauri army. On top of that, there's a new batch of regular weekly challenges, which you'll want to complete if you're hoping to unlock all the cosmetics for this season.

As always, there are two sets of challenges. The free selection is available to all players, while the Battle Pass challenges are exclusively for those that have spent V-Bucks on a premium Battle Pass. You should know the drill by now: Complete challenges to unlock Battle Stars, which will in turn level up your pass and give you cosmetics to customize your character with.

This week, in the free section, players will need to complete a multi-stage challenge that involves landing in multiple locations, starting with Loot Lake. On top of that, they'll need to search seven chests at either Polar Peak or Lonely Lodge, and ride three Volcano Vents without ever landing.

For those with a paid Battle Pass, challenges involve dancing between specific landmarks, doing damage to enemies from below them, reviving a teammate using a Reboot Van, and taking out five enemies in different matches. You can see the complete list of challenges below.

We've been keeping track of all the most difficult challenges and put together a comprehensive Fortnite Season 8 challenge guide. If you need to get Battle Stars fast, you can use that guide roundup to get the challenges done quickly.

The update that introduces the Avengers: Endgame crossover also makes some other tweaks and changes to the game, including how weapon swapping works. You can see everything that Epic Games has changed in its popular battle royale title in the full Fortnite update 8.50 patch notes.

Update on Z1BR Seasons, Servers and Showdown

As we’ve stated since the transition, our number one goal is to maintain Z1BR game service while we evaluate the steps required to continue supporting the game. As part of this process, we want to provide our players information about the game as internal decisions are made in real time.

On Tuesday, April 30, we are ending Season 3. We are also shutting down South America servers at that time. This will consolidate our Americas player base on North America, speeding up queue times and ensuring Z1BR's other servers continue to operate for the vast majority of our global community as we lead into next Season. As of this time, we plan to kick off Season 4 on Tuesday, May 14.

 

We also wanted to inform you that we will be unable to host The Showdown. After much deliberation, we determined it's just not realistic for us to put on a massive global event in such a short window of time that will live up to the standard we've set with past Showdowns.

However, we're still making sure that every player who would've qualified for Showdown receives their rewards, per their Leaderboards ranking at the end of Season 3:

  • The top 10 players in each region will receive their Showdown placement skin;
  • The top 75 in each region will receive their participant skin;
  • And the entirety of our community will be granted the viewer skin that was promised to them at the beginning of Season 3

We sincerely thank you for your patience as we continue to work through this transition. We will be back with more information as we work towards kicking off Season 4.

PUBG Update #28 - Patch Notes


Update #28 is now available on the PUBG: Test Server and is scheduled to hit live servers very soon. As always, we’ll keep you updated and announce when it goes to Live!

PUBG’s latest update introduces our brand new feature Weapon Mastery! Weapon Mastery is a progression system that allows players to earn free rewards as they level up their gunplay skills. As part of Weapon Mastery we are also debuting Medals for players who perform awesome feats during their matches.

In addition to our latest feature, we’ve taken your feedback from our first round of Erangel loot rebalances and made adjustments. Speaking of adjustments, based on player feedback we have reduced the difficulty on a number of missions for Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card, including the elimination of a few missions deemed too difficult to complete.

There are a number of updates to how you can interact with items in the store, interface improvements for squads and over two dozen bug fixes.

Read on for more details on all of the changes and improvements.

PUBG Introducing: Weapon Mastery


Late last year, PUBG Corporation formed a new Mastery initiative dedicated to improving and evolving how progression works on the Battlegrounds. Since then, we’ve been heads down working to establish a cohesive progression system that feels true to the PUBG experience and rewarding to you, the players. After months of planning and development, we’re stoked to finally reveal our first class of progression: Weapon Mastery.

Fortnite's Baller Vehicle Has Been Nerfed

Epic Games has nerfed Fortnite: Battle Royale's Baller vehicle. In a post on Reddit, the developer stated it has "deployed a hotfix reducing the health of The Baller from 300 to 200," meaning no title update is necessary for the change to take effect.

"In the 8.20 patch notes, we said we would add the ability to shoot through the glass of Ballers in a future update," Epic continued. "We've played with shooting through glass and it didn't feel like the right solution."

The Baller was first introduced last month, and allows players to ride around the map like a hamster in a wheel. Epic clearly felt the vehicle was overpowered, however, hence the reduction in health.

Fortnite has also introduced Reboot Vans that act much like Apex Legends' Respawn Beacons. The new feature is part of Fortnite's new 8.30 patch, which brings with it a number of bug fixes and a new LTM named Fly Explosives. For more, read Fortnite's 8.30 patch notes; alternatively, check out our guide to the Fortnite Buccaneer's Bounty challenges.

Fortnite Patch Notes (Update 8.30): What's New Today?

Epic Games has rolled out another new update for its hit battle royale title, Fortnite. Patch 8.30 is now live across all platforms, and while the update number might not suggest as much, this is a particularly significant event. Beyond a new limited-time event called Buccaneer's Bounty that's now live, this update introduces a new respawn mechanic that is now available in the game. Read on for a full breakdown of the patch notes.

Epic recently announced Reboot Vans, and they're now live. Similar to the respawn stations found in EA's rival battle royale game, Apex Legends, Reboot Vans allow you to revive fallen teammates during a match. We've got a full breakdown of how Apex and Fortnite respawns compare, but here are the basics of how they work: When a teammate dies, you'll need to collect their Reboot Card, which is dropped upon their elimination. Once a card has been collected, any member of the squad can bring it to the Reboot Van and respawn them, regardless of who actually picked it up. The vans can't be found in Solo matches, large-scale LTMs, or any mode that already has respawns enabled.

Notably, respawning in this manner doesn't leave you completely empty-handed, as in Apex. Instead, they'll come back with a Common-rarity pistol in ammo, 36 ammo, and 100 wood. After a Reboot Van is used, it goes on cooldown for two minutes. The vans can be found all over the map, including at each major point of interest.

The other big draw this week is the aforementioned Buccaneer's Bounty event, which runs until April 15. Throughout the event, Epic will feature a different limited-time mode to play every day. Treasure maps will also spawn a bit more frequently during matches, and there will be daily Buccaneer's Bounty challenges to complete and rewards to unlock for all players--no Battle Pass necessary. The first of these challenges is already available and asks you to visit pirate camps in different matches; you can consult our guide if you don't know where on the map to find those.

Also new following the update is the Fly Explosives LTM, which Epic says "combines the explosive fun of the High Explosives LTM with the Jetpack." In this mode, the only weapons you'll be able to find are explosives, and Jetpacks will occasionally spawn as Floor Loot. Beyond that, Epic has made numerous bug fixes and UI tweaks. You can read a portion of the patch notes for Battle Royale mode below; the full patch notes can be found on Epic's website.

Week 7's challenges are slated to arrive on Thursday, April 11, bringing players another step closer to unlock Season 8's Legendary Ruin skin. If you still have any outstanding challenges you need to complete in the meantime, you can find tips and guides for this season's trickier tasks in our full Season 8 challenges roundup.

Z1BR and the Daybreak Transition

As many of you saw last Friday, NantG officially announced their decision to transition Z1 Battle Royale back to Daybreak. Like you, we were reacting to that decision in real-time, and are still digesting what that means for the game going forward. That means we don’t have all the answers yet, but we can offer our immediate plans for now until we are ready to share more.

We can share today that servers will remain up, that we have no plans to change the name of the game, or make any other big changes that will affect your current Z1BR gameplay experience. Our number one goal throughout this entire transition is to make sure there is minimal disruption to the game’s service. That means you can still expect to receive Z1BR news through existing Z1BR community channels. It also means that we’ll continue to support the game – through hotfixes, live maintenance, other service updates – as our team works to get back up to speed.

Z1BR is a game that so many of us here at Daybreak have worked on and supported in myriad ways over the years, and we want to do right by our community. As we work through this transition, we only ask for your continued patience as we prepare our plans for the game’s future.

A Message from NantG Mobile on Z1 Battle Royale

In the past few months, NantG Mobile has been working feverishly on rebranding Z1 Battle Royale and reverting the game back to its glory days. We’ve since made countless changes to Z1BR in an effort to recapture the moments that once made the game vastly popular and truly unique and special to many of you. 

Despite the team’s determination and commitment to revive Z1BR’s player base with our recent Season 3 launch update, we soon realized that the road is still paved with many challenges that preclude us from long-term success, including the confusion it caused by having both NantG Mobile and Daybreak managing the same game under two separate brands.

Based on these events and the current state of the game, NantG Mobile will focus on its core mission of developing mobile games moving forward, and we have refocused our team toward this vision.

We have also decided to hand back the Z1BR torch to Daybreak Games, so that both Z1BR and H1Z1 will be under one publishing umbrella once again. Daybreak Games has agreed to keep the servers up for players and continue live maintenance on the game.

During this time period, we don’t foresee any issues of this affecting your experience with Z1BR, as we work with Daybreak on ensuring that the transition process runs as smoothly as possible without any disruption to the game's service.

On behalf of NantG Mobile and everyone on the Z1BR team, thank you for all your countless cheers during our entire journey toward “The Return of the King.” We would never have made it this far without your passion, support and invaluable feedback.

Dev Letter: Rustle/Rattle Sounds Improvement



Among the updates to gameplay balance we released in the latest patch (Patch 27), we made an improvement to the sounds generated by a character's movement, which is a critical sound for gameplay. To provide detailed information on the Rustle/Rattle changes, we would like to explain the changes thoroughly and give some before and after examples.


Previous Character Movement Sounds

In order to continually improve realistic elements in PUBG, our DEV teams recently turned their focus to the sounds that are generated from character movement. Previously, when a character was sprinting at full speed, using the shift key, the character emitted a fixed amount of Rustle/Rattle sounds. The video below gives a good example of this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1EORFyDGVg<Previous movement sounds while running with and without equipment>

As you can see from the video above, the character was still emitting rustling sounds in the early game, even before acquiring any equipment. There were cases where rustling sounds were not being emitted when walking and walking slowly.

Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card is now available!



Today we’re excited to announce the launch of our third Survivor Pass, Wild Card!

Survivor Pass: Wild Card offers a mixture of great new cosmetic items with a spy film theme, allowing players to drop into their favorite map dressed to kill!

Wild Card works in much the same way as our previous Survivor Passes, with the main pass allowing everyone to earn rewards for free. Players who want access to more rewards, including several great new cosmetic pieces, can purchase the Premium Survivor Pass for $9.99. Doing so immediately earns you the Floral Bomber Jacket item and gives you access to some additional rewards for completing premium missions.

Players have 10 weeks to complete as much of their pass as they can, earning rewards and coupons as they achieve new levels. You will earn either a Blue, Yellow, or White coupon with each level up, which can be exchanged for random crate keys in the Coupon Shop. For those who wish to skip ahead or supplement their current level, level packs are available for purchase once again, immediately granting you the rewards from those levels.

In addition to what we’ve done previously with Survivor Passes, we’ve adjusted the difficulty of missions overall, and have added a new series of challenge missions that revolve around your skills with certain weapons. Completing these missions will unlock a special skin for that weapon, so be sure to complete these if you’re looking for a stylish new way to show off your Tommy Gun, Beryl M762, S686, UMP45, or M16A4 skills!

Survivor Pass: Wild Card is available now and runs until 7pm PDT on June 4th. Complete your missions, earn XP, and dress to kill!

Update #27 - Now Live



PUBG's latest content release, Update #27, is now available on live servers and we're excited to announce with it the launch of our third Survivor Pass, Wild Card! Read all about it here.

Check out the patch report below for a rundown of what to expect in this update!

 

To see all the changes included in this update in detail, head over to our patch notes.

This update brings the brand new Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card! With up to 60 rewards available. In celebration of the PUBG 2 year anniversary, we’ve also be added a free 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY CAP to the store.

Survival Title System Season 3 has also now been launched! Survival Points from Season 2 have been soft-reset, meaning you don’t have to start completely from scratch. Players who reached the threshold to claim season rewards will receive them soon.

Major changes have been made to the Flare Gun, including quality of life improvements. We’ve added the new MP5K SMG to Vikendi, bumped up the loot on Erangel, made lots of changes to weapon balance, including making the M16A4 stronger, and also reduced aim punch.

Dev Letter: Patch 27 Gameplay Balance

We recently released Update #27 on the Test Server, which included lots of changes, including the new MP5K SMG, Survivor Pass 3, and changes to the Survival Title System for season 3. In addition to these, we made quite a few changes to gameplay balance and wanted to go a little more in depth on our thought process behind those in this Dev Letter.

Update #27 is the first major balance patch of 2019. We introduce balance patches such as these to keep the game evolving and prevent gameplay from becoming stale. Our goal is to release a pretty major balance patch roughly once per quarter, to provide a more diverse PUBG experience and keep the game evolving and feeling fresh.
