The famed island of Erangel is getting an overhaul, PUBG Corp has announced. Season 4 of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is underway next week on PC and later this summer on consoles.
In a cinematic trailer posted to their respective social media sites, PUBG Corp gave us a look at what’s coming for season 4 in the popular battle royale. Notable among the changes is a complete graphical overhaul to Erangel, the map that started it all. Popular landmarks such as the Prison, Military Base, Mylta Power, and the Mansion will be showcasing what is believed to be the “aftermath” of a great war, as seen in the trailer.
Also coming to the battle royale shooter is a new turntable item. The turntable will spawn randomly throughout the map, allowing players to play music for all nearby combatants to hear. Turntables can be destroyed or turned off and will stop playing after one track. This should add a nice surprise mechanic to the game itself.
Full patch notes can be found on PUBG Corp’s website. Season 4 is on the test server now and hits PC fully next week on July 24 and consoles later this summer. Stay tuned for updates.
