AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS – AUG. 12, 2021 – PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS Update 13.1 is here and brings with it a series of updates to the recently released TAEGO map, including the introduction of plane Emergency Landings at the start of some matches. When flying players over the map, there are times when the plane engine will explode and will be forced to make an emergency landing. If players decide to not jump before the plane lands, they will start the match with 50 percent HP.

Update 13.1 is available today on console, following its availability on PC last week. Full PC patch notes can be found HERE and console patch notes can be found HERE . The recent patch report video HERE.

Season 13 also introduces a new ranked season, adjustments to the Sanhok map, new Taego features, and more.

  • New Ranked Season: Update 13.1 introduces a new ranked season, meaning all rewards earned during the Ranked Season 12 have been automatically added to players’ inventory. Ranked Season 13 will run for two months, similar to recent ranked seasons.
  • Taego Tweaks: In addition to the aforementioned Secret Room, Taego has seen an increase in the number of Air Drops to ensure all players have a greater chance to acquire valuable loot.
  • Sanhok Updates: Despite a full remaster in 2020, the team at PUBG Studios continues improving Sankhok. With 13.1, the map has seen the geography of the Northwest Island adjusted with small cliffs and rocks, providing cover for players moving across the shore.
  • Map Rotation: With 13.1 Paramo has been replaced with Karakin in Normal Matches. The new map rotation for matches is the following:
    • Erangel
    • Miramar
    • Sanhok

    • Karakin
