Dropping into the battlefield in PUBG is about to become even more perilous, as the game adds an emergency landing feature to its latest update.
The patch notes for update 13.1 are live and, amongst a plethora of other features, PUBG has added an engine failure scenario to the game’s starting plane. Named appropriately, the emergency landing plane will move faster than the standard starting plane but will decline in altitude as it moves across the map. This means that players will jump farther at the beginning of the flight and but much shorter towards the end of the plane’s descent.
Emergency landing planes should be easily identifiable to players at the start of each round, seeing as they’ll not only be hurtling through the air but on fire too. Players may choose to remain in the plane for the duration of the flight, though this is ill-advised, as doing so will result in taking 50% damage at the end of its journey.
Last month, the game introduced a second chance system similar to that of Warzone’s gulag alongside a new map, Taego. Players dropping into Taego will now find plenty more loot in the way of care packages following the 13.1 update. In addition to the standard care package, the game has introduced an increased number of small care packages which will drop around the map. These packages, as well as containing loot, can double up as hard cover.
