PUBG PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

A new test build of PUBG has been released ahead of the full 1.0 release next week.

This update adds a Replays Menu which allows players to record up to 1km around their character. Once the game finishes the reply is saved and be played back from the Replay menu. A total of 20 of these replays can be saved.

This update also brings some tweaks and changes such as a reduced Blue zone on Miramar, new keybindings, and bugs fixes.

In other news, the PUBG team will also be taking a look at making maps selectable but they are trying to figure out a way to add the option without splitting the player base and reducing the possible number of players in the different modes and maps. No map selection will be available for launch but at least they are thinking about it.

They are also looking at implementing a ping lock to help with server lag and stability issues. You can read more about this in the update and here are the test server patch notes.
