Now Playing: PUBG Might Be In Trouble If It Doesn't Evolve

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

PUBG recently received a new update, adding additional anti-cheat measures to the PC edition of the game. Now, however, developer PUBG Corp. has removed the update, rolling the game back to its previous version due to "compatibility issues."

"Despite its effectiveness in blocking cheats, we have decided to roll back our latest live server update," the company stated in a blog post. "‬‪We will continue to resolve some compatibility issues caused by it. There will be a small patch to download. We apologize for the inconvenience.‬"

The company did not state when or if the update would be re-applied following a potential fix. It's not the first issue the patch has run into; PUBG Corp. previously delayed the update because of an "unexpected issue." The more recent issues include hard crashes and being unable to launch the game at all, hence the rollback.

PUBG on Xbox One received a separate update recently that added Game DVR support and introduced additional starting areas for all players. Other gameplay changes include lower damage taken from objects such as rocks, trees, and uneven terrain. On top of that, squad member colours should now be more visible, and you can now use the right stick to rotate your character at the customisation menu.

Later this year, the battle royale title will expand with a new emote system, Achievements, an in-game friends list, and the ability to voice chat with your squad in the main menu. There's also a new PUBG map on the way, which you can try on the game's Experimental Test Server next month.
