PUBG Receives Major New Console Update, Patch Notes Revealed

The developers of PUBG have today pushed out a substantial new update for the popular battle royale shooter for those who play the game on consoles. The update, which is version 11.2, brings a number of substantial changes to the shooter, along with some major news pieces of content for players to sink their teeth into.

When it comes to the most notable tweaks in this update to PUBG, the bridges in Sosnovka Island and Erangel have now been changed. This is something that fans had said for quite some time they wanted to see altered and PUBG Corp was finally able to implement some new qualities. In addition to now being a bit wider, the bridges feature catwalks underneath that players can stand on to get the drop on others. In addition, the new Survivor Pass has also arrived in update 11.2 and brings with it a ton of pajama-focused cosmetics.

A number of other smaller changes have also come about in this update for PUBG as well. PUBG Corp has changed the look of some weapons to go along with some quality of life improvements for other features within the game.

Again, it's worth stressing that this patch is only rolling out for PUBG on console platforms. So if you're someone who already plays the multiplayer shooter on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, or PlayStation 5, this is what you can expect to see once you download the latest patch.
