PUBG 1.0 Update #2 Patch Notes

The new patch will bring quite a few fixes to the game, including some additional objects in the game world, as well as some changes to the core gameplay. One big change is the reduced visible distance that players will now see when they parachute into the game. This is meant to help optimize the server so that it isn’t loading in the entire map for 100 people at the same time. This should help reduce some of the lag for many of the players in the game.
