New maintenance has been announced for PUBG on PS4 and Xbox One.
The good news is that server downtime and maintenance will not affect PC or Mobile versions of the game.
However, console gamers will not be able to log on and play regular games for two hours.
Bluehole Inc. has confirmed that servers will be offline for both PS4 and Xbox One on July 9.
This time is slightly different if you live in the United States, but it will share the same effect – server status being down.
The good news is that the new July 9 update and downtime will include a few very helpful bugfixes for fans.
This will include fixing issues with games not loading correctly when entering a match, as well as the game crashing during matches.
Another fix being deployed today on consoles includes fixing a bug that allowed for Auto Equip Attachment settings to be reset.
Downtime is scheduled to begin at 6am in the UK, or 10pm PST if you’re based in the United States.
Here’s the latest from Bluehole, who confirmed online: “Xbox & PS4 Players: Servers will undergo maintenance for 2 hours at July 8 10pm PDT / July 9 7am CEST.
“A hotfix will be deployed with maintenance – Fixed two issues causing crashes mid-match & when entering a match – Fixed bug which could reset Auto Equip Attachment settings.”
PUBG console players will need to wait until servers go back online before they can download the patch and play again.
