Patch Notes 27.1 Details

Live Maintenance Schedule

※ The times shown below are subject to change.

  • PC: December 6, 12:00 AM – 8:30 AM (UTC)
  • Console: December 14, 1 AM – 10 AM (UTC)

Map Service

Dev’s comment: We’ve decided to introduce a new rotation strategy after careful consideration of player feedback regarding our map rotation system. Rotations will now vary between map selection and random map regions.

In regards to the new rotation for random map regions, Sanhok will no longer be a permanent fixture and instead, Rondo will now be available for selection within the Normal Match rotation pool. Through this update, we aim to offer players the flexibility to play the new map at their convenience – and what’s important, we’ve reduced split queues by implementing a new feature that’ll match players who select Rondo along with those who select random map selection in a single pool.

Recognizing that player preferences differ across regions, we believe implementing two distinct rotations could be more effective than our current single one. And to address some regular community thoughts that we receive, completely eliminating the rotation system or enabling all servers to choose their preferred maps will ultimately lead to affecting essential factors such as matchmaking times, which brings more challenges.

The updated system below has been shaped largely by your feedback and the preference data we’ve gathered so far – we’re eager to hear your thoughts on this new system, so please share your feedback after giving it a try!

※ Please note that PC players can anticipate map changes every Wednesday at 2 AM UTC, while Console players can expect the same every Thursday at 7 AM UTC.

※ In Random Map regions, larger maps have a 22.2% probability of being selected, while smaller maps have a 11.1% probability.

Rondo is divided into two distinct regions, each presenting a unique atmosphere that offers either familiar gameplay or new strategic approaches.

Dive into vibrant metropolises, a floating restaurant, serene lakes, a bamboo groove, and more.

Injecting a twist into the core elements of PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS – LAND, LOOT, SURVIVE – Rondo unfolds a fresh narrative with increased choices every time you embark on a new playthrough. 

※ Even more Rondo features are soon to come in future updates, starting from December 6!

Main Areas

※ Please note, the following descriptions of each region are intended to depict each visual aesthetic and may not have a direct connection to the gameplay elements of Rondo.

As we acknowledge various community preferences regarding this system, we are committed to engaging in thorough communication and proceeding with comprehensive evaluations to refine the Recall System moving forward.
