Week 15 Update is Live for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Players on the Public Sever can now experience the latest update to PUBG.

UPDATE: The Week 15 Update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now live. Clocking in at 1.7GB, it's no small patch and addresses a host of issues that were affecting the game. One of the most notable changes is that you can no longer exit a vehicle if it is blocked on all sides - I'm anticipating some interesting strategies being used against players looking for a roadkill.

Over on the official Steam Community page, PlayerUnknown has revealed the Early Access Week 15 Update coming to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

This patch is only a small one compared to the Month 3 Update, which is to be expected given that the monthly updates are supposed to encompass a wider variety of features while the weekly updates focus on smaller fixes.

Granted, despite being a smaller patch, it does note that an SEA Server has been added to the server options, allowing those in Southeast Asia to experience better connections.

The Week 15 Update includes a graphical improvement on care tyres - they will now display the correct effect depending on the type of ground.

Here’s a full breakdown of what’s included in the Week 15 Update:

General

  • Added SEA (Southeast Asia) server

Client Performance

  • Improved UI performance

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused a character to walk through gas station wall.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a character to stand on top of a tunnel after getting out of motorbike inside of a tunnel.
  • You can no longer get out of a vehicle if the vehicle is blocked all the way around.
  • Fixed a bug that made a teammate's weapon invisible in spectator mode
  • Fixed an issue of the scope crosshair appearing blurry when post-processing quality is set to high
  • Adjusted GROZA rail to better fit Holographic Sight and Red Dot Sight
  • Fixed a bug that caused ammo not to drop after dropping Extended Mag with full Backpack
  • Vehicle tire effects will change immediately when the vehicle is on a different type of ground

All around, the Update focuses on some important fixes, such as players clipping through gas station walls and ammo not dropping from a full Backpack. It’s a good start to July, and if everything goes to plan, this update should hit the public servers on Thursday.
