They Tried… I Suppose

Quality-of-life issues, small bug fixes and minor improvements are the name of the game today, alongside the re-introduction of Dynamic Weather. When playing on either Erangel or Miramar when it’s overcast you will be able to enjoy the dynamic weather, otherwise it’s hot and sunny everyday.

An essential feature, finally added

There are changes to bullet penetration, colour-blind settings, graphical options and inventory management. Players can finally Ping positions without opening the map, keeping you in the moment and not so confused about which house the enemy is actually in.

For any of you who play in squads but prefer not to talk or be talked at(you know who you are!) there is now a player by player mute function for you to enjoy.
