PUBG 5.1 Details
The developers behind PUBG have announced some of the changes coming in the 5.1 patch. Of interest will be a race track on the Miramar map, along with some general tidying up. How you will be able to race on a race track with people shooting at you is a bit of a mystery, but should be fun.

As usual, further details can be found on Shacknews

PUBG Goes Cross-Platform
The developers of PUBG have announced that the forthcoming Autumn update will enable cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4 players, but not PC. There was no indication that they will ever support PC - maybe because of the obvious advantage keyboard/mouse players have over controller for games like this.

You can read more about this on The Verge and IGN

PUBG Map Selection
Bluehole have released a couple of announcements of things to be coming our way in the near future:
  • Map Selection - the ability to let you choose which map you want to play on ahead of match-making
  • Weapons Balance - various new attachments, and moving some of the better items from random loot locations to the care packages
There are no dates on these new features - hopefully soon though, particularly for map selection!

PUBG Update News
ShackNews have published a couple more good PUBG articles covering recent developments:

PUBG Anti-cheat Measures
The producers of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds have started to fight back against the heavy cheating that seems to be blighting the game. Whilst some of the measures they are taking could inconvenience some players, most regular players would be unaffected.

PUBG Crash Info
Another sort of guide from Shacknews covers reported crashes following the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The developers are aware of it, but no fix is imminent at this time.

In addition, at the bottom of the page there's an interview with the PUBG developer. This was recorded prior to the full 1.0 release - some interesting stuff in it.

DFC Review of 2017
This last year saw a couple of great BobLAN events, and the switch of this site to SSL. PUBG was a big hit at the last LAN, and now that it is in full release, it should be improving steadily in the runup to the Spring BobLAN!

Thanks for the past year go to:
  • [DFC]Lynx for hosting the best LAN parties ever
  • Pup and Trebz for sending in the photos from November - it's great to capture the group at the LANs, and to see how little the line-up has actually changed over the years
  • }data{ for continuing to host this site, and enabling the Let's Encrypt auto-renew functionality
  • Let's Encrypt for providing free SSL certificates to hobbyist sites like ours, who otherwise would not be able to afford one
  • @Scott_Helme for providing his site, where we were able to go from an F security rating to A+ with a few simple tweaks to the site's header information

All in all, a pretty good year. Here's to an even better 2018...

PUBG 1.0 Only a Week Away
The much anticipated full release of what is the world's most popular game is scheduled for 20th December 2017. The full version will bring several new features, including the new desert map Miramar, new vehicles (the jetski sounds fun) and some new weapons, for example a sawn off shotgun to occupy a sidearm slot, and a Winchester rifle. The ability to jump over small obstacles will also make its debut.
