PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Update 8.3 coming to PC and consoles

With Season 8 coming to a close, Update 8.3 brings a new item that temporarily negates Bluezone damage, a new ferry system to Erangel, two new Team Deathmatch stages on Sanhok, and a number of quality of life updates. An overview can be found below, but you can view the full patch notes here:

  • Jammer Pack: To start, we are unleashing the Jammer Pack onto non-ranked Karakin and Sanhok map queues. The Jammer Pack prevents players from taking damage while inside the Blue Zone for a short time at the expense of a level 3 bag slot. Each pack’s energy will slowly deplete over time, but will revert to a regular backpack afterwards. The cost could definitely be worth it as that Blue Zone closes in!
  • Erangel Ferries: PUBG’s most recognisable map, Erangel, is getting a transit upgrade with Ferries from the mainland to Sosnovka Island. Each of the Ferries will stay stationed at each dock for a short amount of time prior to their arrival departure. All Aboard!
  • Misc. Gameplay Updates: Survivors will also notice the new assist system has expanded beyond Ranked Mode to track all those players who lend a helping hand. Speaking of a helping hand, we have added teammate combat indicators to help players quickly identify when a team member is in trouble.

Update 8.3 officially releases on 16th September for PC Live Servers and 24th September for Console Live Servers. Players who want to test the update prior to launch can play immediately on PC Test Server!
