A large update has been announced by the popular battle royale shooter, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds.
This is a big patch. We’ve got map selection, bug fixes, more improvements for Miramar, and a whole heap of weapon balance changes.
Weapon balance in particular is really important for us, and we want to take the time to get it right. For this reason, we’re going to keep the changes on the test server for longer than we normally would. We’ll be listening and and making changes based on your feedback before pushing this update to live. So please share your thoughts with us!

Map selection in PUBG? As it stands there are only 3 available maps. Many players have been complaining about having the small map put into the rotation. It seems that this is the planned response. This is not your typical map selection. You will have the option to pick which maps you would like to be considered in the rotation during the queue.
Some notable balance changes are the nerfing of weapon damage. Some drastic changes in particular are being done to Shotguns and the SKS. For a full list of weapon balance changes, view the source of this article.
