PUBG PC patch finally brings emotes

PUBG PC patch finally brings emotes PUBG PC patch finally brings emotes

PUBG is now out on PC and Xbox One.

For now, 12 emotes are on offer with more to be "added in the future".

For the Xbox users, we have good news, the PUBG Update is here and claims to have fixed the issue in the recent update.

Away from the new emotes, fans will be able to use a new in-game friends list for the first time this week. Holding the emote menu button, which is defaulted to the tilde key (~) will allow you to pick the emote you wish to use.

PUBG friends lists can be 50 people big, and apparently it's a one-way follower system not a mutual "soandso wants to be your friend, do you accept?" type affair. There's also now main menu voice chat, so you can speak to your team while there.

Tonight's patch is also focused on bringing various optimisations to the PUBG server and client. We have mitigated lag and stutter instances and alleviated frame drop and lag occurrences happening when players are pushed together, starting from the second half of a match, or in dynamic situations, like intense firefights.

Additionally, the developer has added 37 new Achievements on Steam.

"This has allowed for a smoother environment to play in, than before". "Unfortunately, there's been an adjustment in our plans", the PUBG team said, "but we will be sure to give an update on this at a later time".
