Key ingredients in making PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds an intense game are the ever-shrinking play area and a so-called blue zone, but now it's time to adjust the latter as part of a new patch for the PC version of the game. If you're caught outside of the blue zone at any time, you begin taking damage. Update 10 removes clothing spawns from all maps and makes significant changes to how the Blue Zone works.

In addition, the blue zone's damage has been buffed for the seventh, eighth, and ninth sequences, while the safe zone will now tend to favour locations with land instead of water as the match enters its final phase.

The update will also include a number of other content additions and bug fixes created to bring the console and PC builds more in line with each other. If you thought that PUBG matches moved a little too slowly, then, you're definitely going to want to check the game out after this update has been applied.

"We're looking for feedback on a few elements so jump into the Test Server and let us know what you think of the changes". Earlier this month they released the Savage Map in closed testing and now the new War Mode has gone live for the game in another timed event.

We've added more roads, off-road paths and vehicle spawning positions to facilitate easy travel into and out of the area. There are also some UI changes and bug fixes coming along with this patch, so be sure to check out PUBG Corp's full patch notes to read about those. PUBG Corp. expects the map to be available on live servers in May.

This also should improve performance when several players are in close proximity. Does cutting clothing spawns make the game better?
