PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a free-to-play battle royale game where players only have one goal - be the last man standing. This update comes with tons of new content and bug fixes to make the game more refreshing.

Training Mode: Aim/Sound Lab

Everyone knows how important it is to train aim. But sound is also an important factor that assists players in getting kills. The developers have introduced a new shooting area where players can practice both their aim and hearing skills.

Players can now enter the training mode and access the Aim/Sound lab after completing basic training. This change encourages players to practice more before heading into matches.

Fifth Anniversary

PUBG: Battlegrounds is almost five years old and to celebrate it, the developers have put up decorations across Erangel and Taego in Normal Matches. These are just the tip of the iceberg since there are massive plans coming in the future.
