PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ test server will go live again tonight with some slight changes to the massive 1.0 update ahead of the game’s official release.

The server will go up at 8pm CT and last most of the week until the early morning of Friday Dec. 1 at 4am CT. It will feature first and third person Solo and Squad games on the NA, EU, and Asia servers.

As part of the updated patch notes there have been a few bug fixes and slight tweaks to the new kill cam, and a number of changes and improvements to the game’s revamped UI.

The font has been changed for the in-game HUD and inventory items, and there have been improvements to the design of the compass, colors and transparency of the HUD.

Thankfully, there was also an improvement made to the sound of the red zone bombs, as well as the volume of them being modified. Players who experienced the patch on the test servers last week reported that the volume of the explosions were incredibly high, even at a distance.

This could be one of the last runs of PUBG’s 1.0 update on the test servers before the game finally reaches a full release before the end of December, but the new desert map will still have to be tested at some point as well.
