PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS Public Test Server (PTS) Guide
If you play PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS regularly, then you may want to consider installing the new test server that has been dispatched to Steam only a couple of days ago. It allows you to experience the newest updates before they get officially released.
However, you should be aware that these updates (coming every Wednesday) may contain bugs and glitches. But, if you want to help developers improve the game experience for the rest of the players, then here is a guide on how to set up the PUBG test server in no time flat.
How to Join the Public Test Server (PTS) in PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
First, you must have PUBG in you Steam Library, and the test server should appear right below the original game in the list automatically. Choose it from the menu and press the Install button (see the screenshot above). As soon as the new server is installed on your PC, you can start testing out the new content by launching the corresponding icon on your desktop.
If you want to know what kind of updates are coming to the game, then check the official PUBG forums. For example, the latest patch has addressed issues such as low FPS and optimization for low-end PCs. Many players have been experiencing FPS drops in the game's open areas and during intense combat animations. These issues are currently being dealt with, and they are of the highest priority for the development team as of now.
On the other hand, players who expect new items will be rewarded as well. The newest update includes a fresh model of the submachine gun -- Vector SMG. You can also improve it with the newest 2X Aimpoint scope for effective midrange combat. As for transport, PUBG now has a motorbike with a sidecar, and three new versions of the Dacia car.
Unfortunately, one patch cannot guarantee a complete overhaul of the game, so you may still experience some issues. But that’s why the test server has been created in the first place -- to assure the efficiency of the game's optimization.
