PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a free-to-play battle royale game where players have only one goal: to be the last man standing. This update contains tons of new content and bug fixes to make the game more refreshing.

Training Mode: Goal/Sound Lab

Players can now enter Training Mode and access the Aim/Sound Lab after completing Basic Training. This change encourages players to practice more before heading into matches.
