PLAYERUNKNOWN wants PUBG to be a platform that goes beyond battle royal

PLAYERUNKNOWN wants PUBG to be a platform that goes beyond battle royal”

Development of that map, codenamed "Savage" reached a stage in early April where some lucky players were given the chance to get involved in a play test and give their thoughts and feedback on it.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Savage map returns today, and while there's been some interesting changes such as new locations, a decreased red zone, and real-time weather, perhaps the most interesting change is to the infamous blue zone - which will now adjust according to the surviving player count.

PUBG's Savage map just began its second round of player testing on experimental servers, and if you aren't planning on participating yourself, patch notes detail some of the changes that have occurred since the 4x4km map was first tested two weeks ago. Banyan Grove and Abandoned Quarry have been placed in the centre of the island, while Dock has been added to the southeast section, complete with ships and a large crane. A new feature for Bluezone allows the game to calculate and adjust depending on the number of players that are left alive in the game.

Those that were a part of the first round of testing will already have a beta key to take part in the Closed Experimental Server, and sign-ups for further keys will end in just over 2 hours from publishing, at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET / 1 PM BST. The Savage map has been changed significantly since the last round of testing. Items spawns have changed in that boats will now spawn more predictably near towns along the sea, grenades will be more prevalent, and 8x scopes will be the highest level scope found in a care package. Make sure you visit the official 4×4 map beta key redemption page and then authorize and activate through Steam. The redzone is now smaller and will last for less time.

KitGuru Says: As usual, it's good to see PUBG Corp regularly testing new additions before plonking it into the live server.
