PUBG : Season 7 Gameplay Trailer and Full Patch Notes

Season 7 of PUBG is now live and not only does Vikendi return with improvements, but as usual there’s many other updates of note.


The game’s Season 7 comes with the new Cold Front survivor pass which contains new outfits, vintage Dinoland staff outfits, a new Alex skin, Lindh family heirlooms, and a lot more. The Cold Front pass is available on Steam now and on console beginning on April 28th.

Performance & Stability

  • Greatly reduced instances of hitching during gameplay. We will continue to make further optimizations where possible
  • Optimized the drop mesh of weapons and attachments in the world to reduce memory usage
  • Reverted new blood effects to version used prior to Update 5.3 due to unresolved crashing issues
    • Reverted blood effects include:
      • Overall visual changes
      • Environmental blood splatter
      • More distinct blood splatters for head and neck shots

The original intention of the blood effect improvements were to provide similar visual effects across all color modes and enable players to get quick information during combat situations from their shots and surrounding environments.

However, we have confirmed an issue with game stability from the updated blood effect features. While we’re happy with the blood effect changes, providing smooth and stable gameplay is our number one priority. Therefore, we’ve made the hard decision to roll back the blood effects to the old effects from before Patch 5.3.

We will update you once we are ready to deploy the improved blood effects again. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this decision.
