PUBG Corp. is always busy offering its userbase with new updates and features. Both PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile get regular updates. However, this time PUBG Console was left behind as players have been waiting for Update 4.2 since long. Now, finally, PUBG console players can take a breath of relief as PUBG Console Update 4.2 has arrived on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 live servers on Tuesday. With this update, PUBG Corp. is trying to lessen up the gap between PUBG PC players and PUBG Console players, further hoping to put both the platforms on the same update schedule.
PUBG Console servers were reported down by many players but PUBG Support came up with good news, releasing the much-awaited 4.2 update to console version. They even tweeted about the same:
Xbox & PS4 Players: Maintenance is complete. Season 4 has arrived with Update 4.2 now live on consoles!
This update brings the Erangel Visual Update, Survivor Pass 4: AFTERMATH, weapon & vehicle balancing, and more.

PUBG Season 4 also comes up with some really interesting updates. Let’s briefly discuss a few major updates that the new update brings with it:
- PUBG Season 4 comes with Survivor Pass 4: Season 4 Survivor Pass is live now although it has been reduced from 12 weeks to 8 weeks. New cooperative missions will let players work together to complete objectives.
- Dynamic weather is back in Erangel: As the name suggests, this feature allows dynamic changes in the weather during the course of the match. If a match stars with overcast weather, it means that the weather will change dynamically in the match. It will keep shifting from overcast to windy to hail to light rain to heavy rain (rain with lightning and thunder) to foggy. Furthermore, new destructible items like pylons and barricades have been added. They can be destroyed but will provide a decent cover until they are destroyed completely. Erangel also gets several visual upgrades.
- Vikendi’s ambient wind noise has been reduced significantly.
