PUBG Has Officially Launched, Ditches Weather Effects

PUBG has finally launched out of Early Access on PC and comes with a lengthy set of patch notes detailing just what has changed with the new 1.0 release.

After a good couple of months in Early Access on Steam, an Xbox One Game Preview launch, and over 20 million sales, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, also known as PUBG, has finally launched on PC. The launch brings a number of new features previously found in the test server including the ability to vault and mantle, a bunch of new weapons, vehicle sounds, and finally the long awaited desert map.

The game, which officially launched at 7am this morning, experienced extended period of down time so PUBG Corp. could bring all of the changes to the main version, which weighs an impressive 12.6GB, so you better get downloading.

For those who spend most of their time in the test server, or follow the game’s news at all, you’ll likely be familiar with the majority of these changes, including the addition of the Kill Cam, 3D Replay System, and much more.

There are however a couple of unexpected changes including the decision to remove rainy and foggy weather from Erangel – the game’s main map. We’re unsure exactly why, though it’s likely that when these maps arise, people usually quit-out and re-join a game which doesn’t have weather effects.

The full patch notes can be found on the game’s Steam page.
