PUBG: Update 22.1 Adds Intense Battle Royale Mode, Performance Improvements

Update 22.1
Update 22.1 Steam

Developer Krafton is set to launch Update 22.1 for PUBG next week on PC. The upcoming patch will add the new Intense Battle Royale mode to custom matches.

Unlike the normal BR mode, Intense Battle Royale mode in PUBG only requires two players to start, though it can accommodate up to 16 people. This game mode focuses more on quick yet challenging matches due to the smaller number of participants. Players can also switch between first-person perspective (FPP) and third-person perspective (TPP) if they want to.

Moreover, Intense Battle Royale Mode can be played on the following maps:

  • Erangel
  • Miramar
  • Taego
  • Deston

Update 22.1 is going to bring some performance improvements as well. The company has made optimizations to the user interface and fixed issues with certain in-game mechanics to help improve frame rates.
