PUBG Corp have announced Season 4 of PUBG, which brings updated Erangel visuals, matchmaking update, Survivor Pass, cooperative mission system and more. It's all in the PC Update 4.1, which is already live on the game's test servers.

So, PC players can check out PUBG's Season 4 feel on the Test Server, but console players will be getting the update later this summer.

For starters, not only is Erangel getting a visual update, it's received a story trailer as well, which you can check out above.

As for PUBG's Erangel update, the team wrote they wanted to bring their classic map in line with the latest ones, thanking those who helped them test it. You can check out the military base, mansion prison and other newly polished locations in the gallery below.

Erangel has also received trenches, abandoned tanks and even some barriers along the shore, which not have a sort of Normandy feel to them. Overall, grass density, colour saturation and brightness have all been dropped. 

"Survivor Pass 4: Aftermath reveals the past and present of Erangel through skins and items from the island's broad history. There are over 100 rewards to unlock by completing a variety of missions and leveling up your pass", the company wrote.

PUBG's Survivor Pass 4: Aftermath kicks off on 23 July and ends on 15 October 2019, so 12 weeks of carnage in total.

Also improved is the mission change system, and PUBG players can swap out up to 3 daily missions free of charge, whereas additional daily and weekly missions can be swapped using BP. Complete all three daily missions, and you get another set.

Weapon rate-of-fire will be less affected by FPS, which will also be more consistent at low frame rates.

What you see on the first photo is the PUBG Nations Cup Pan, but that one will cost you $9.99. The turntable on the image above will play a single song and turn itself off, where all the players in the vicinity will hear it. You can destroy it though.

PUBG Corp also implemented a matchmaking system update, which makes "a number of improvements to allow players, and the system, to adapt to regionally specific needs", improvements to the user interfaces on the Wheel, Weapon Mastery, store, and Character Customize Tab, and a bunch more.
